5 simple changes to make today to live a happier life
“Happiness depends upon ourselves.” — Aristotle, a Greek philosopher
To live a happier life, all you need to do is make some simple changes.
For some of us, happiness feels slightly out of reach.
For example, we may say to ourselves:
If only I landed my dream job, I’d be happier
If I find the perfect partner, I’ll be happier
I’ll be happier if I lose some weight
Happiness is not about any of these wishes or desires.
To be truly happy, we should look not for external but internal factors.
Everyone can live a happy life if they make up their mind that they can feel good and excited about their life.
What do you need to do to change your life and become happier?
Here are five simple changes you can make to live a happier life.
1. Change Your Perspective
A shift in your approach to life changes can go a long way in cultivating happiness. Our conventional thinking says happiness is about reaching our goals. However, once we obtain them, we often feel nothing.
Enjoy the ride and find happiness in the daily grind
Happiness is about shifting your mindset from thinking you’ll be happy when you reach your goals to enjoying the process or journey to accomplishing those goals.
2. Don’t Compare Yourself to Others
A big pitfall to happiness is comparing yourself to others. This can happen easily when you spend a lot of time on social media. Comparison robs you of joy and experiencing your own happiness.
When you compare your life to someone else’s life, you do yourself a big disservice because your chapter 1 can’t compare to someone else’s chapter 20. Find joy in the mundane, seek out awe-inspiring moments of wonder, and take a walk around the block to enjoy the beauty of the day.
Our lives are filled with beautiful moments every day if we take the time to notice them.
3. Deeply Connect with Others
Deeply connecting with others is essential to keeping your relationships strong with people you care about in your life. Reach out to your family, friends, and colleagues. Send a text, call them, or email them.
Relationships are critical to your success in your personal and professional life. It’s crucial to develop authentic relationships. Cultivating relationships in life is vital to your happiness. It can be easy for relationships to deteriorate due to neglect or an argument.
Relationships are not always smooth, and conflict happens between people. The key is to work through it and find ways to strengthen connections. Grow your relationships, don’t let them slip away, and you’ll be happier.
4. Be More Curious
Are you just going through the motions of life? Are you experiencing life without enjoying it? Are you tired of the monotony of life? Many of us are not happy; we are just bored.
Be more curious so you don’t fall into the trap of living the same day on repeat
Think about shaking up your life if you are not happy and find new ways to learn and grow. Become more curious about the world. Try a new restaurant, learn how to cook, or attend a different workout class at the gym. Learn a new skill or make new friends.

5. Handle the Highs and Lows of Life the Same
“Happiness is not the absence of problems, it’s the ability to deal with them.” — Steve Maraboli
Life is all about the highs and lows. Living a happy life means embracing the lows and highs the same way. Much of what we experience in life is about how we handle it.
Don’t suppress your emotions; acknowledge that it is okay to be happy, mad, scared, and sad. Don’t push away your feelings. Label them and have them wash over you like a wave. You may drown if you fight against them. To live a happier life, handle the highs and lows of life because they are inevitable.
Bringing It All Together
You can make five simple changes today to live a happier life. Change your perspective, don’t compare yourself to others, deeply connect with others, be more curious, and handle the lows and highs of life the same.
If you make these changes, you can live a happier life. They won’t cure all your ills in life and won’t make you happy all the time, but they can lead you down the right path.
An internal shift in your mindset can pay off significantly. Don’t look outward for happiness because happiness is inside us all. We must bring it out of us and make it happen.
“Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.” — Dalai Lama, a Buddhist monk
