Good news! Everyone can be happy. Researchers have found that more than half of our happiness depends on things that are actually under our control.

Here are our best advice for living a happy life. Take note!

Don’t burn bridges

Every relationship in your life is important, so don’t push people away. You never know when you might need them.

Don’t beat yourself up about a mistake

That is not going to solve anything, the mistake has  already been made. It is time to accept it and move on. We all learn from mistakes.

Love your body

Take care of yourself, you only have one  body to last you your whole life. Eat healthy, exercise, take care of your skin. Feeling good about yourself is the first step to having a better life.

Don’t rip yourself into pieces to keep others whole

Sometimes we are unable to say NO just because we want to please others and we forget that if we don’t want to do something we don’t have to. Don’t let others take advantage of you, you have control of your life.

Don’t let fear dominate you

Fear can act in two ways, as a motivator or as a freezer. Try to let it act as a motivator, you don’t want fear dominating your life.

Keep  trying to achieve your goals.

Never give up. It’s like climbing a mountain– arriving at the top will be completely worth it.

Surround yourself with good people

Don’t waste time with people that are only bringing the negative to your life. YOu need to get those people out of your life for good.
