16 Habits of Wildly Happy People
How To Be Happy In Life
What makes some people happier than others?
I’m not talking about a fleeting moment of happiness.
Like the way you feel when you are eating nachos. Just me?
I am talking about the deep down true happiness.
Let’s talk about the habits of happy people.
What comes to mind when you think of happiness? Money? Success? Having everything you want?
Those things may be nice at times, but they are not the secret to building a happy and fulfilling life.
Are happy people doing things differently than people who seem to be on the unhappier side of life?
There is a simple one-word answer to this. YES!
Happiness and habits go hand in hand.
The habits you practice in your day to day life are 100% going to be directly connected to your level of happiness.
These habits you are going to read can and will help you reach and maintain a full happiness tank.
And let me add one more thing. Nobody is happy all the time. That is a completely unrealistic expectation.
We are all human which means in our lifetime we will feel a rainbow of emotions.
These habits will not make your life a basket of sprinkles and confetti. But these habits can help make the journey of life significantly more enjoyable!
Here Are 16 Habits of Happy People
1) They Are Present
Happy people are present in their lives. They know how important it is to slow down and really be there.
It is so easy to feel rushed in your day to day life. Always thinking about the past or wondering about the future.
But this can cause you to miss what is right in front of you.
Living in the moment is a huge factor in your level of happiness.
2) They Are Positive
Are you a glass half full or glass half empty kind of person?
Happy people approach life with a positive mindset.
This absolutely does not mean happy people are immune from anything negative. But they do know that they have the power to decide how they approach any situation life throws at them.

3) They Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff
Happy people let things go.
Some things are just not worth your time. Simple as that!
There will always be little things to complain about. Things that are frustrating.
But it is so vital to be picky about where we all spend our energy.
4) They Cheer For Others
Happy people are happy for other people.
They know that something good going on for someone else is not taking anything away from them.
Are you cheering on the people in your life?
5) They Have More Experiences
Life is not about stuff. Now, don’t get me wrong, stuff can be nice.
But material things are not the golden ticket to a happier life.
Happy people are less concerned with adding physical stuff to their lives.
Put a value on adding more experiences to your life. I guarantee this will leave you feeling happier and so much more fulfilled.
6) They Don’t Compare
Let me rephrase that a little. Happy people try not to compare as often. We all get bit by the comparison bug from time to time. That is life.
Happy people know how important it is to shift their focus away from comparison as quickly as possible.
Here are some helpful tips on how to stop comparing yourself to others.
7) They Have Goals
Goals are such an important part of life.
They give us all something to work toward. Something to look forward to.
Goals add that level of excitement and motivation we all need.
8) They Find The Good
Part of living a happy life is being able to find the good in every situation you are presented with.
The good may not always be easy to find. You may have to bust out a magnifying glass at times.
But being able to always find the good (no matter how small) will make happy times even better and hard times more manageable.
9) They Watch Their Social Circle
Happy people tend to surround themselves with other happy people. Good vibes all around.
Take a look at the people you spend your time with. Make sure they are adding to your life rather than leaving you feeling drained.
10) They Lead With Kindness
Is kindness a key component in how you live your life? It should be.
Truly happy people are kind. Kind to others and kind to themselves.
11) They Practice Gratitude
This is a huge one.
Gratitude is a major factor in the level of happiness in life.
Happy people know to count their blessings. They are thankful for their lives. They appreciate everything they have.
Being grateful each and every day will without a doubt change your life for the better.
12) They Look For Solutions
Every single person out there will face problems in their lives. EVERY SINGLE ONE!
What matters is what you do when faced with a problem. It is all about how you react.
Happy people work their way through a problem to find some type of answer or solution. They know an issue or a failure is not the end of the road or the end of the world.
13) They Take Responsibility
Happy people do not spend time blaming others for their troubles or worries.
They know they have the power in their lives.
Happy people know when it comes to their lives, they are holding the controller.
14) They Take Care of Themselves
Health and happiness seem like a match made in heaven!
Eating habits. Sleeping habits. Exercise. Mental health.
These all play a massive role in building a happy life you deserve.
15) They Unplug
This can be a hard one. Yikes! Social media is loved by so many. Maybe a little too much.
But an excessive amount of time on social media can make you feel the opposite of happy.
Plan some time right now to unplug. It may be the giant breath of fresh air you didn’t even know you needed.
16) They Are Always Learning and Growing
Listen up, friends!
This is the most important thing that happy and fulfilled people are doing.
They know that throughout life they are going to be on a continuous journey of self-improvement.
Happy people know that life is constantly changing and evolving. Just like they are!
And how exciting is that!
