3) Spend time with friends and family

Relationships are worth more than you think. Not feeling socially connected can affect your health.  Loneliness can lead to heart attack, stroke and diabetes. Friends are key to improving your life. Share good news and enthusiatically respond when others share good news with you to improve your relationships. Want to instantly be happier? Do something kind for your friends and family.

4) Get enough sleep

You can’t cheat yourself on sleep and not have it affect you. Being tired actually makes it harder to be happy. Lack of sleep = more likely to get sick.

Naps are great too. Naps increase alertness and performance on the job,enhance learning ability and purge negative emotions while enhancing positive ones. 

5) Challenge yourself

Learning another language can keep your mind sharp. Challenging your beliefs strengthens your mind. Increasing willpower just takes a little effort each day and it’s more responsible for your success than IQ. Not getting an education or taking advantage of opportunities are two of the things people look back on their lives and regret the most.

6) Laugh

People who use humor to cope with stress have better immune systems, reduced risk of heart attack and stroke, experience less pain during dental work and live longer. Laughter should be like a daily vitamin. 

7) Be optimistic

Optimism can make you healthier, happier and extend your life. Being overconfident improves performance.
