5 ways to be happier
We all have those moments in life where we feel a little down and sad; sometimes there isn't even a real reason why. There are little things in life thought that can make us feel a little better and here are my top 5 ways to make those sadder moments in life a litter bit happier! 
1. Listen to a happy songScience has proven that listening to a happy song can improve your mood. Okay, I'm not 100% sure that that is true but I stand by it! Put on an upbeat song and have a dance around. I promise it will lighten your mood instantly. 
2. Get up and out of bedThere's nothing worse for making you feel rubbish than staying in bed and feeling sorry for yourself. Instead, if you're feeling down, have a shower, get dressed and go for a walk. The fresh air is bound to make you feel lighter and happier - unless it's raining. Then I wouldn't necessarily go for a walk but still get up and have a bath or shower, pamper yourself and have a spa day! 
3. Get creativeI find that if I'm not in the greatest of moods, drawing often helps me get out of the funk. Currently my go to thing is my wreck this journal which I like to do if I'm feeling down. For some reason, creating something makes me feel better! If you aren't an  arty person, maybe try cooking or something like that - just being productive can help.
4. Have a spring clean
They say a tidy house equals a tidy mind and I don't know about you but I love it when my room looks good. If it's tidy, I automatically feel more content and productive. Call me crazy, but it's true! I find tidying my room, often whilst listening and dancing to music, puts me in a much better frame of mind.
5. Smile
Sometimes the way to real happiness starts by faking it. I find that even if I'm in a crap mood, putting on a smile tricks my mind into thinking I am happy and thus I start to become happy. Does this happen to anyone else? Put on a smile and laugh and the positive energy created makes you happy. Trust me on this one, it does work. 
So, there are my 5 tricks to being more happy in life. Do you use any of these tricks, or do you have other ways to be happy? Tell me in the comments below and we can all be happy together!
