Do You Want To Be Happy?

Are you happy? We think that being happy and positive is super important. Sometimes it’s hard to be positive. It can be easy to be negative. There are a few super simple tips to help you keep a smile on your face.

We found a cool post about called 19 Things Unhappy People Do on PopSugar. If you find yourself doing any of the following things listed below, it might mean that you’re unhappy. And we don’t want that.

Here are 19 things that unhappy people tend to do:

  1. Worrying About Things You Can’t Change – There’s no need to stress about things that are impossible to change. Don’t think about the could’ve, should’ve, and would’ves. Instead think about what’s coming next.
  2. Give Up When Things Get Too Hard – If things don’t go your way, do not give up. Keep your head up and finish what you start.
  3. Take Themselves Too Seriously – Life is meant to be enjoyed. If you’re always serious, it’s hard to enjoy what you’re doing.
  4. Never Exercise – Exercising will give you a mental and a physical boost. Add exercise to your routine and you’ll be thrilled with the benefits of exercise.
  5. Set Unattainable Goals For ThemselvesGoal setting is important because it gives you some thing to shoot for. The key is to set goals that are realistic. Do this and you’ll have a sense of accomplishment when you reach your goals.
  6. Eat Unhealthy Foods Often – It’s easy to have an unhealthy diet, but food has a direct effect on how you live, your energy levels, your health, and your mood. Healthy food is a must.
  7. Don’t Get Enough Sleep – Nothing compares to a good night of sleep. In fact a solid 8+ hours of sleep should be your primary goal every day.
  8. Focus On Weaknesses, Not Strengths – Everybody has strengths and weaknesses. If you focus on what you’re good at, you’ll send out a more positive vibe. Don’t let your weaknesses hold you back.
  9. Spend Too Much Time On Social Media – Social media is everywhere. It’s easy to let it consume your time, but then you won’t get anything important accomplished.
  10. Stay In Their Comfort Zones – Sometimes you need to push your limits and try new things. Yes, change can be scary, but life needs a bit of risk. Go do something new and different every day.
  11. Worry About What Other People Think – Don’t let other people’s opinions affect who you are. You’re the only one that matters.
  12. Gossip Or Speak Negatively About Others – Positivity is contagious. If you don’t have anything nice to say, then just don’t say anything at all.
  13. Work Too Much – A work life balance is important. If all you do is work, you’ll never have time for family, fun, and friends.
  14. Isolate Themselves – It’s good to be social. Plus it’s a good way to keep your mind off whatever is bothering you.
  15. Never Indulge – You need to treat yourself to something nice every so often. It will make you smile.
  16. Are Ok With Settling – Don’t ever settle. Whether it’s jobs or relationships, if you’re not happy, you need to move on to something better.
  17. Refuse To Forgive – Grudges are no fun. Forgiveness can be the best thing you’ll ever do.
  18. Avoid Planning And Organizing – Order is a great thing. It can help you establish a routine and you will be more prepared for whatever comes your way (like the job hunt).
  19. Focus Only On Themselves – Don’t only focus on yourself. Take the time to see the big picture.

We want you to be happy. One thing that will help you be happy is to find a job that pays you a decent salary where you enjoy what you do. You can find lots of cool jobs that fit that description on the job board. Why not apply for a cool job today?
