The most important factor in enhancing your happiness is to make sure that you take proper care of your body.
Getting a good night’s sleep will certainly contribute significantly to how relaxed and happy you feel.
A second important aspect of your lifestyle that will help you maintain your level of happiness and contentment is a well balanced diet – keeping your intake of carbohydrates, fat and protein in proportion and helping to maintain your daily calorie intake at appropriate levels.
And the third critical factor in maintaining your health and well-being is the benefit you will get from a regular exercise program.
Taking care of your physical health is an essential part of taking care of your mental well-being. If you don’t get adequate nutrition, or sleep or exercise, there is no way you are going to be able to maintain a positive attitude, no matter how hard you try to.
Real happiness and contentment is going to be way beyond your reach if you just aren’t well fed and well rested.
Ensure that you get the rest you need. Trying going to bed a little earlier than usual if you are feeling tired.
Eat smaller meals and eat them more frequently – this will help to keep your blood sugar levels regular.
Eat fresh foods; plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables are essential in a healthy diet and make sure you include adequate amounts of proteins as these help develop your long-term energy.
When you exercise your brain releases endorphins – which are known as the “happy hormones” – in other words, exercise can put you on a ‘high’.
Regular exercise that pushes you enough to make you breathe harder also helps you to burn fat.
So your regular exercise has the overall benefit helping you to stay physically fit as well as those endorphins which will give you a burst of energy and a feeling of well-being.
Taking control of your own body in this way – through diet and exercise is the way to make yourself happier.
Making better food choices, getting plenty of quality rest and getting more regular exercise is the optimal way of increasing your “happy factor”.
