Our end goal in life is to be content & happy. That’s not always as easy as it sounds. Life has a way of punching you in the face if you let it.
Wouldn’t it be great to know how some girls always manage to seem so happy?
The secrets of truly happy girls – those who live life to the fullest and make the most of every moment – aren’t complicated. With a little work, you can be one of those women you used to envy.
I’m not saying you’ll have a giant toothy smile plastered to your face 24/7. No one’s that happy, at least not naturally. All I’m saying is you can be happier and more content in life. You’ll still have bad days, but they’ll be much easier to live through.
All you have to do is know the secrets to killing it in your day to day life. Here’s what the girls who have it figured out are doing differently.
1. They're grateful for little things.
We’d all love bigger bank accounts, a mansion with a Porsche 911 parked in the garage, and a tall, athletic, and handsome man to wait on us hand and foot.
Truly happy women aren’t stressed out by what they don’t have. Instead, they feel blessed for what they do have, such as their health, enough money to have a place to live, good friends, family who loves them or even something as simple as catching a rerun of their favorite show.
2. They believe that realest wisdom lies in a happy mind.
Happy girls know life is too short to waste on negative people. They don’t hesitate to cut out toxic relationships. Basically, if it’s affecting their life in a negative way, they work to cut it out of their life.
They choose to be kind over being right. A major secret that most people ignore? Making others happy is key to being happy yourself. Don’t believe me? Try smiling at someone who looks a little down. Seeing them light up and smile back makes you feel great.
3. They literally sweat it out: they exercise.
This really shouldn’t be a surprise. If you’re unhealthy, you tend to feel physically and emotionally run down. Working exercise into your day helps relieve stress, prevent many health problems, and improves your mood. You don’t have to do 2 hours of cardio every day, but even 15 minutes of yoga a day is a great start.
4. They make sure to get their beauty sleep.
How often do you see a happy girl that stays up all night, sleeps a few hours and continues on with her day?
Sure, you might seem happy doing this when you’re in college, but eventually, it gets old and you feel like crap. Truly happy girls know sleep is important to helping them handle whatever happens tomorrow.
5. When life offers them lemons — they ask for tequila and salt.
Change your mindset. Make a lemonade, exchange those lemons for oranges or just throw them at life’s face, do whatever it takes just to keep going.
Don’t stay where you are. Don’t be sad. Don’t overthink why “this shit happened to you”. Just keep on moving. Make a plan and stick to it.
It’s ok to feel down from time to time. Everyone knows the feeling. Just remember: don’t stay there too long.
Life tends to get monotonous when you’re never learning anything new. The monotony drags you down and rips away your happiness.
It doesn’t matter what your learning. It could be a new language, cooking a new dish, trying a new dance or anything you want. Knowledge is power and that power makes you happy.
The only one standing in the way of you being happy is you. Start living life your way. It’s one of the not so secret secrets of truly happy girls everywhere.
