The 30-Day Happiness Challenge You Should Start From Today: These Seven Activities Can Make You A Happier Person

We all strive for happiness, but oftentimes it feels elusive. We follow a monotonous routine, but does it make us feel content? So, how can happiness be attained?

Society tricks us into believing that happiness can be found in wealth, success, and an extravagant life. But what about those who chased their passions and failed to achieve success or wealth? Let’s face it, happiness does not rely on these external factors.

Every individual is running in the rat race, and a bit faster every day to attain their goals. However, we often lose sight of the ultimate goal—which is, to be happy. All your hard work will go in vain if you don’t have the time to celebrate your wins and to be happy.

Now, without further ado, let’s check out seven simple activities that can make you happier in 30 days. It's time to embrace the 30-day happiness challenge!

Start your day with meditation

After waking up in the morning, freshen up and then make time to meditate for 20 to 30 minutes every day. If you cannot make time for it in the morning, you can do it at any other time that seems convenient to you. But it is vital to calm your mind and enjoy the silence. If you are new to meditation and don’t know where to begin, you can seek help from guided meditation videos on YouTube.

Watch the sun rise or set

The sun not only sustains life on Earth but also helps boost our feel-good hormones. Watching the sun set or rise every day can have a calming effect on your body and mind.

Gift yourself some pretty blooms

Flowers can instantly uplift your mood by adding a splash of vibrant and cheerful vibe to your home. You can pluck some from your yard or even buy them from the local florist. Spend some time arranging the flowers, and you will be surprised to find out how relaxing the process can be.

Practice mindfulness

Let’s admit it, most of us wake up in the morning and the first thing we do is reach out for our phones and engage in mindless scrolling. We have fallen prey to this poor habit, but if you want to start your day positively, eliminate mindless activities.

Instead, focus on practising mindfulness. Try to be fully engaged and present in whatever you are doing, whether you are cooking a meal for yourself or peeling an orange. Mindfulness will encourage you to relish every moment and seek happiness in simple things. It will enable you to tap into your emotions and tackle them better.

Embrace imperfection

When you are on a quest to seek happiness, you might get plagued by the idea of achieving perfection. If you desperately strive for an undisputed relationship, the perfect job, and a flawless life, you will end up chasing perfection all your life and will never feel adequate, satisfied or even happy. By practising mindfulness, you can admire the inevitability and beauty of imperfection.

Make a scrumptious meal for yourself

The best thing you can do to boost your mood is prepare your favourite recipe at home and treat yourself to a delicious meal. Set a dinner table for yourself, arrange your fancy crockery and savour your meal.

Declutter a room or a corner of your house

Make way for happy and positive feelings by tidying and decluttering a corner of your house or a room. After you have cleaned, spend some time sitting and enjoying the space, and allow the feeling of accomplishment to fill you up with joy.

Follow these simple activities regularly for 30 days without a miss, and allow these seemingly ordinary things to welcome a massive difference in the quality of your life. If these seven activities positively influence your lifestyle, you may continue doing them after 30 days.
