New Year is just around the corner. During this wonderful period, many start to think things through. What they achieved, what lessons this year brought to them, and if they were happy… In the race for amazing accomplishments and climbing the career ladder, it is very common to forget about what is really important.

While going out you can notice that everyone is in a hurry staring at their smartphones. In social networks, you find that everyone achieves goals and exposes thousands of photos. In the modern world, it is extremely difficult (but so crucial) to find balance and steer toward an expected outcome in a comfortable rhythm.
There is no right and only answer how to be happy. However, there are small tips on how you can make your day more interesting, gives an opportunity to relax. Perhaps these tips will seem ordinary to you. But you would be surprised because not everyone uses them.
1. Exercise more

2. Positive thinking
The power of thought means more than it seems to us. Even a few negative thoughts can dramatically change our lives for the worse. The good news is that it works the other way too! Try to focus on the good things happening in your life and always look for alternatives to your background assumptions.
3. Treasure your experiences more than your possessions
Think before you spend money. What is more important for you? Many people buy branded items, gadgets, and cars. For some reason, they think it is important. But if you take a sober look at everything, you are more likely to remember an incredible trip full of impressions than buying the latest iPhone.
4. Random acts of kindness
Everyone unconsciously strives to make something significant. It is extremely simple to add this feeling to your life by making something pleasant to others. Trust us, the smile on the faces of your loved ones and even strangers can give you many positive emotions.
5. A Complete unplug
The modern world is quite exhausting due to excess of information. Give yourself a little break from social networks and the Internet in general. Set aside your phone before going to bed and when chatting with friends. It will be even better if you do one day of full detox per week or per month.
6. Always remember why you are grateful
Write down a couple of points every day. Feeling and thinking about the things you are grateful for as you wake up is a great way to build more happiness.
There are people who can easily be in a trance state for hours, but even in a busy rhythm of life, we can all find a way to enjoy a 2-minute meditation. You can do it right before a big meeting, or in the car before walking into the office, or a quick reprieve before walking into the house at the end of a workday.
If you think your life is full of responsibilities and you’re too late to live a different life, think again! It’s really never too late to live a happier and more fulfilling life.
