10 Tips To Become A Happier You

10 Tips To Become A Happier You

Happy mind = happy life!

I believe that at the end of the day, everyone just wants to be happy. Here are a few tips on how to achieve a happier life!

1. Eat healthy/healthier

It is very important to eat healthy foods in order to feel good. What we put into our bodies reflects our mood. Not only do you need to eat healthy, but make sure you are taking in low calorie beverages. Water is the best way to go because it has zero calories and will keep you hydrated. The healthier that you eat and drink, the better you will feel both physically and mentally!

2. Workout daily

Working out helps to not only keep us on a healthier lifestyle but will make you feel so much better, too! Exercising is known to relieve stress and bad energy. This does not mean that you have to hit the gym every day and intensely workout, but just a little bit each day goes a very long way. Taking a long walk with your dog, lightly jogging down a scenic route or even taking up a yoga class will drastically improve your mood towards being happier!

3. Get a job/internship in your field of interest

When looking for jobs and internships, make sure you find something that interests you. Do not just apply for a job because you are qualified and it pays a lot. That may mean picking a job that pays less and interests you more over a job that pays more and sounds somewhat appealing.

4. Practice a hobby

Do something that you enjoy doing. Whether it is writing, cooking, reading or even drawing, make sure that you practice this hobby as much as you can. Doing something that you have an interest in will lead you to being happier because you are simply doing something you enjoy.

5. Listen to upbeat music

Create a playlist of your favorite songs. Make sure that these songs are upbeat and have a positive message to them. The happier a song is, the better you will feel when listening to it!

6. Spend time with family and friends

This one is pretty self explanatory. Spend quality time with the ones that you love and make great memories together. No time spent together is time wasted.

7. Treat yourself

This is the most important. Make sure that you treat yourself when you work hard or simply just need a pick-me-up. Whether this is spending money on that dress you've always wanted or treating yourself to fro-yo, anything will do!

8. Read positive quotes and live by them

Find some of your favorite positive quotes and print them out to hang up for inspiration. Live by these quotes each and everyday to bring purpose and happiness to your life!

9. Try something new/step out of your comfort zone

Do something that you have always wanted to try but were always too afraid to do. Whatever it is, just do it!

10. Love yourself

Work on loving yourself the way that you were created. Try by making a list of qualities that you love or other people love about yourself. Whenever you are feeling down, look at this list to remind yourself just how amazing you are. You will instantly feel better about yourself!

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

Why I Make Time To Work Out

Something about working out just always makes me feel good.


When I first started college, I worked out about three times a week and I felt awesome. When I transferred, I kind of stopped working out in the summer because I had too much to do or because I simply just didn't want too. Looking back on this, I wish I would have told myself to work out even when I didn't feel like it because it just gives me a happy feeling of accomplishment.

The first semester of my sophomore year, I actually signed up for fitness classes at my school gym and attended HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) on Tuesday's and Thursday's. I eventually got to busy with school work, and school is my number one priority. I did not sign up for these classes during the second semester, although I should have. Signing up for those classes made me want to attend and work out. It gives you a little push, which we all need once and then. I now try to balance school and working out. After a workout, I just feel good. You get that sweat session in and bam, it's like you're a whole new person. At least, that's how I feel. Even if I have to force myself to go, I will. I do this because I know how good I will feel afterward and the pay off I will feel for getting to the gym. I have also noticed that when I do workout, my mental health just feels better, I feel happier and joyful, especially when I start making it a routine.

Once you get a routine down, it just becomes like second nature to you. Usually, when I don't go to the gym, I feel out of my normal routine. I hate messing up a routine when I have one. Working out just helps me feel happier, motivated, and just all around better.
