Happiness is contagious. Do you ever ask yourself why people are so happy all the time? Or, why they seem to have everything under control? Well, maybe it’s because they’ve got the habits of happy people. Here are some of them.

1. Try not to take things too personally. Try not to get upset by something someone else does or says, whether that’s at home or at work. Why not use that energy to give yourself a mental break from stress.

2. Focus on the positive. If you can’t find a nice thought about someone or something, say something nice to yourself. Doing that reminds you that your mood affects you, and not the other way around.

3. Make someone’s day. Nothing works better than giving someone a compliment when they least expect it. Give a compliment to yourself and make a self-improvement plan to help you do more of that for yourself.

4. Be a good role model for your children. A successful role model usually attracts successful people to them. You want to set an example for your children.

5. Gratitude is the way to go. In fact, gratitude is the only way to go. It is amazing how much you can be grateful for even when you are faced with adversity. For example, take time to be grateful that you had the opportunity to have your first child. Every day is a blessing!
