20 Easy Ways to Be Happier

Tania Khadder & Kayla Baxter | AllHealthcare

9) Rearrange Your Furniture
It may sound silly, but even the tiniest shift of a kitchen table or couch can make all the difference. It’ll make the room—and you!—feel new again. And the best part? It doesn’t cost a thing. (Tip: If you need to move a large item on your own, stick a dish towel under each leg and push; or if you’ve got carpet, use furniture sliders). 

10) Smile on the Outside
Even when you’ve got nothing to smile about.  Forcing a smile can trick your body into changing your mood. You’ll also find that other people will react better to you when you’ve got a smile on your face. Voila! You’ve just created a snowball effect of fuzzy feelings. 

11) Gaze at a Photograph
If the photograph is of a loved one, it can stimulate blood supply to the brain, says researcher Andreas Bartels from University of London.  Imagine them giving you a hug.

12) Get Informed
Stuck on a problem that just won’t go away? Try Googling it.  Reading up on how other people have handled your situation may give you some clues on how to tackle it yourself.
