Happy New Year

Try these 10 simple things every day to make your entire new year a happy one.

Feel Gratitude in the New Year

Research shows it’s possible to cultivate an attitude of gratitude. Be grateful every day for all that you have. Gratitude and appreciation will significantly increase your chances of experiencing happiness every day.

Help Others

Science has shown that people who help others are happier. Spend time supporting a cause, individual, or family who needs your help.

Take care of yourself

Self-care is so important. Exercise every day, meditate, eat well, and get enough sleep. You will be a happier person if you are healthy.

Laugh every day

Watch a funny movie, TV show, or see the humor in a situation—just laugh. Look for new ways to approach life and to have fun.

Connect with others by saying thank you

Take the time to thank someone every day. Appreciate your mate, parents, or children. Look the clerk at the store, mail carrier, or that waiter in the eye and say thank you.

Commit to a project

Learn a skill or even a language. Plan that next trip. Set achievable goals and work toward them on a daily basis. Set goals that will give you some satisfaction and will help you achieve happiness.

Manage your time

People who are more in control of their lives tend to be happier.

Learn to love yourself

To love yourself is a key component of happiness.

Slow Down

Live in the moment.   The only moment in which we can be truly happy is the present moment. Pause at the beginning and end of each day to appreciate and celebrate your accomplishments and savor your precious life.

Make happiness a priority every day

Put it at the top of the list.


Start out the New Year—not with resolutions, but with simple things you can do every day and at the end of the year, you will be glad you did.

Focus on positive activities–things that sustain you and fill your life.

  • Great list! Each one is important, but if I had to pick a favorite I’d like to see more people focus on it’s self-care. I have a course I run on making self-care a lifestyle and women in particular really struggle with this because they see it as being selfish when in fact it’s really an act of survival. Thanks for the inspiration – and Happy New Year!
