Today between work, family, friends, commitments… we have really busy lives that are not always pleasant. Therefore, we need to try to focus and follow a few tips to help us be a little happier and to feel better about ourselves.
Advice to help us live happier lives:
1 – Establish limits
Either with your friends or with your family, if you feel that there are topics that you don’t want to talk about because they affect you in a negative way, put limits on these conversations.
2 – A new series
Studies have shown that watching a series distracts us from our problems and help us to improve our mental health.
3 – Say ‘no’ more often
We can’t do it all, although we would like to be able to. Saying ‘Yes’ to everything that is proposed can be very tiresome and puts a lot of pressure on yourself. Learn to reject plans and proposals.
4 – Take part
Exercise and being an active person can help to reduce symptoms of depression and improve our health, both physical and mental.
5 – Breaks on the news
Seeing negative news on television can affect your state of mental health. Take some time away from this type of news so that it doesn’t affect you much.
6 – Put yourself first
You can’t make everyone happy, but you can try to make yourself happy. Find the balance and, in case of doubt, you’re going first.
7 – Learn how to cook
The process of grocery shopping, looking at recipes and cooking helps your mind feel less stressed.
8 – Use the social networks properly
Too many social networks can affect your mental health because you focus too much on the people around you. Filters out the content you want to see in these networks and use them well.
9 – Use your time for things you like
Experts recommend to employ yourself in causes that appeal to you as a person or that you really like.
10 – Spend money on experiences
It is better to spend money on experiences than on material possessions, or at least it makes us more happy.
11 – Recognize toxic people
The people that surround you have a huge impact on your life. Learn to recognize who suits you and who do not and try to get the latter out of your environment.
12 – Stop your negative thoughts
Stop thinking about everything that could happen and think of all that is happening to you. Oust the negative thoughts.
13 – Manage money well
Money is one of the main reasons why people have anxiety. Maintaining a budget will help you relax on this aspect.

Discard that idea head-on that you’re not good enough. What are you, learn to believe it.

The hours of sleep are very important to lead a balanced life. Go to bed and leave the mobile at one side. Use your bed only for sleep and sex.
