Many people believe some individuals are born happy whereas for them finding happiness seems to be a very hard to achieve objective.

According to ‘Dr Mercola’ there are a few simple tips that can help rewrite sorrowful life into one filled with joy.

1. Experiment to find out what makes you happy.

If you have not taken the time to explore what brings joy to your life, you may realize you do not even know what brings you happiness anymore. In this case, try out different things you have never done before.

2. Focus on gratitude.

Incorporate a daily gratitude session where you identify something you are grateful for. You can express your gratitude in many ways: silently say ‘thank you’, call or email the person you want to thank, or devise your own gratitude ritual.

3. Take time to savor life.

Resolve to cut down on rushing from one thing to the next and reduce your number of appointments and daily tasks.

4. Laugh now!

When you are in the middle of a mess, look around you and realize the absurdity of the moment. Remind yourself that a year from now, no one will care, and you will probably be laughing about it anyway.

There is little doubt about the powerful effects of positive emotions on the physical health and well-being. Happiness protects the body from stressors that may lead to coronary heart disease.
