Happiness is an emotion like sadness and joy. Anyone can be happy or angry or depressed. After all, a happy life is not a happy life forever, but increasing the frequency of happiness. Happiness is also a ‘chemical action’. Changes in the chemicals secreted in our body can cause emotions to rise or fall.

Anyone who knows these attributes of happiness can find a way to increase the frequency of happiness. In this regard, based on the data of ‘PsychCentral’, a mental health information medium, we looked at a simple but simple way to increase the happiness index that does not take a few minutes a day.

Listening to music that makes you feel happy

In moments of exhaustion and fatigue, you may have experienced your heart fluttering and feeling better because of the sudden sound of music. Music has the power to lift the mood most easily. Not all music has this effect.

Also, there are differences in the kind of music that can cheer people up. So, it’s a good idea to make your own list of music that makes you feel good. A study of listening to music in older adults with Alzheimer’s disease found that people with Alzheimer’s also found that listening to music reduced stress and increased well-being.

△ Run immediately

According to experts, humans have chemicals that can increase feelings of well-being. Making these substances secrete is a strategy to make the brain happier.

A representative chemical is dopamine. Experts describe this neurotransmitter as a substance that causes a sense of achievement. In other words, do the difficult things you want to put off today and feel a sense of accomplishment.

If you want to postpone your workout to tomorrow, do it today without delay, and if you have a task with a deadline, do it right away without dragging it too long. If there’s something you really need to say to someone, it’d be nice to talk about it today as well.

During the practice, it is stressful, but after doing it, there is a sense of accomplishment and happiness is maintained for a longer time. The uncomfortable and anxious feelings that occurred while procrastinating are also relieved. Of course, this often takes longer than five minutes.

In this case, there are ways to split the time. Rather than postponing difficult tasks until tomorrow, it is to practice even five minutes today. At least in that you haven’t completely procrastinated, you feel more accomplished and dopamine released so you feel more at ease while you rest.

△ Think of someone who gives you strength

Along with the aforementioned dopamine, there is another chemical associated with happiness: oxytocin. Oxytocin is called the ‘love hormone’, and it plays a role in making trust and intimacy with a loved one more solid.

When I think of someone I trust or someone who supports me, oxytocin is released. This stabilizes the mind in anxious moments and becomes a motivation to regain strength when tired. Happiness is not so far away. Just by thinking of someone who supports you, you can feel a stronger social connection through the secretion of chemicals and amplify your sense of well-being.

△ Kindness

You may feel better when you take out your anger on someone, but you may have experienced a feeling of being uncomfortable or even more uncomfortable after being angry with someone. On the other hand, if you did an act of kindness to someone, it can trigger happy feelings. It doesn’t have to be a grand thing.

If you are someone who doesn’t usually greet people well, there is a way to greet people kindly at the store, and if you are a person who usually goes up alone when riding an elevator, you can press the button for the next person and wait for the next person. In the same vein, expressing gratitude to someone is also a way to boost your mood.
