If emotions are part of the everyday that are holding you back from feeling good about yourself, then making yourself happier needs to be at the top of your to-do list. If you are feeling good and happier, chances are you will get more done and you can spread that feel-good factor and improve other people’s days too.
How many times do you wake up in a less than perfect mood and it affects your whole day? It can reduce the amount of work you complete and it can even have an effect on those people around you. Changing your mood and making yourself feel better is an important step in becoming an organized person.
Food can affect your happiness
For me food is a killer of moods, it can change me from being in a slightly bad mood to putting me asleep. Sugar is what I crave, food high in this substance is what my body seems to call for and yet if I eat the food I sleep, it is not that I feel a bit sleepy, I can’t concentrate and my brain completely wants to shut down and sleep. After I wake from a sugar induced nap I am grumpy and not a great person to be around, and yet I can’t seem to break the habit of destroying my mood.
I’m determined to tackle this issue once and for all, because I know I have more energy and I am able to do more of the things I love if I keep away from my nemesis.
However, other areas can cause a negative impact to your happiness and knowing which ones you need to fight can make the task of being happier easier.
Exercise and happiness
Every expert says there is an exercise for you that you will enjoy, they are wrong. There are just some people who never find an exercise that truly suits them, but they are aware how important exercise is and take part because it is a necessity.
This is where you might have to fight the desire not to exercise to increase your happiness; exercise, even going for a walk, will have positive effects on your body and it can release chemicals in your brain that give you a positive feeling. Even doing exercises that you like and not necessarily love, will improve your mood.
Health and happiness
While it would be perfect if health and happiness were easy to acquire, there is some evidence that the food that you put into your body does play an important part in how you feel. The right type of nutrient is important for your body to function properly and that includes a sufficient amount of liquid in the form of water to keep the body working correctly. Dehydration is an important factor in moods, it can affect how your brain works and how you feel.
Eating the right food and drinking enough water is important if you want to feel good. Happiness is an emotion controlled by a number of different factors. Whilst it can be part of a process to try and change how you feel, by attaining long-lasting happiness from the inside instead of seeking outside pleasures, which will only be a “quick-fix” solution, leaving you more unhappy within a short space of time.
Therefore, if you are looking to feel happier, it can be as simple as eating the right foods, drinking plenty of water and stimulating your body to exercise which will release the chemicals that can make a person feel good about themselves.
