Six ways to feel good

If you find yourself feeling low, follow these ‘Six Habits of Happiness’ from the UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center to inject some feel-good factors in your life. 

  1. Pay attention
    Mindful people have a stronger immune system and are less likely to be hostile or anxious.
  2. Keep friends close
    Social connections are key to happiness. But it’s quality over quantity, so make time for those closest to you.
  3. Give thanks
    Regularly expressing gratitude promotes optimism, better health and greater satisfaction with life.
  4. Drop grudges
    By forgiving those who have wronged us, we feel better about ourselves, experience more positive emotions and feel closer to others.
  5. Get moving
    Regular exercise increases self-esteem and reduces anxiety and stress.
  6. Practice kindness
    Selfless acts light up the same pleasure centers in the brain as food and sex.
