Boost Your Happiness Today with 72 Simple Ways!

When was the last time you felt truly happy or wished for a foolproof way to boost your happiness in an instant?

Do you see the happy people around you and wonder what their secret is or how they got so lucky? Are you convinced that you’d feel happier if only you didn’t have so many problems in your life?

Too often, we see happiness as a destination to be worked towards or bought. We forget that our happiness is always there, right where we left it, when we dropped it for frustration or anger or guilt or sadness or regret.

All our emotions are fluid, even happiness. And, if you know where to look, true happiness can be found in each and every moment.

Even on the toughest days, when you’ll feel that happiness is completely out of reach. It’s still there waiting. And it’s all for you.
