Are You Happy?

Hello Everyone!

Today I have not one, but TWO inspirational posts! I will link my second post at the end of this post! Have you ever thought or asked yourself "Am I happy?" Well, I know I have at some point or another. I think being happy is one of the best feelings in the world. If you think about it, when you're happy you're likely to be in a good mood and feel good in general. 


Here is a list of things I do to keep happiness and my life.

1. Engage in fun activities 

This could be a new activity or something you enjoy in general.

2. Listen to music

Upbeat music always puts me in a good mood.

3. Read inspirational books and articles.

Words of encouragement and inspiration helps me think happy thoughts :) It gives me a sense of peace.

4. Exercise 

Endorphins make you happy lol. I haven't  worked out in a while, but when I did I felt good afterwards.

5. Be Optimistic and look forward to the good things in life.

I've  mentioned  this in the past, but you can't expect to be happy if you're constantly negative. 


As people we're not going to be happy 100% of the time, but you have to try  to find some joy out of life.

Here's the link below my second inspirational post

I'm Thankful



Side Note: I know that I've been absent from blogger and Instagram, but I plan catching up on blog reading, commenting, and responding before or by next week!


Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Happiness is me laying down and play with my little one and my husband by my side. It may sounds cheesy and cliche but my family is everything to me. :-)

I am convinced that being happy is something that you have to work at, and I almost see it like a part of a health routine. Just like we have to actively work to stay/get healthy, we have to do the same in regards to our happiness. It doesn't just magically happen. You have to work at it. I love your tips for happiness!
