This One Simple Habit Will Instantly Make You Happier

Updated: Nov 1, 2022

Would I be out of line to assume we ALL would like a little more happiness in our lives?


Even the happiest person on earth would be like " Hell yeah, sign me up for more happiness, please and thank you! Woohoo!"

So, if you're on board for putting a little more happiness in your daily life, I've got good news for you. There's one simple thing you can do to get the train chugging down the tracks of happiness.

And there are infinite ways you can incorporate it into your life, every day.

Luckily for you, I've narrowed down to ten examples to give you a head start.

We'll get to those in just a moment, but first , I wan to talk about comparison.


"Comparison is the thief of joy"

- Theodore Roosevelt


In the age of social media highlight reels, celebrity TV shows, and Insta-perfect moms, its easier than ever to let yourself fall victim to the comparison game.

It seems almost impossible to avoid when we have perfectly curated Instagram feeds constantly beaming our short-comings through our eyeballs, into our brains, permeating our souls and ultimately convincing us we are "less-than".

So how do we fight this joy thief and take back our happiness?

Sure, we COULD smash our phones with hammers and spend the rest of our lives living under a rock, trying to avoid any contact with the media and/or technology.

But then we would miss out on those adorable cat videos, hilarious vine compilations, and the opportunity to connect with so many awesome people all over the world.

Also, Disney+ just dropped soooo, I have a pretty good relationship with my TV right now and I don't plan on cutting my ties with technology any time soon.

But there IS something we can do. And it's a lot easier than deleting your facebook account, changing your name, and moving to the woods to live entirely off the grid. #thatescalatedquickly

So here it is .....drum roll please...

*insert drum roll noises here*

Practicing Thankfulness.

Yep. It's that simple.

Practicing thankfulness is all about training your brain to focus on the things you already have.

Living in the moment. Loving what's in front of you.

Realizing you already have everything you need. That you already ARE everything you need to be.

It's pretty much comparison Kryptonite.

When you practice thankfulness, you're saying yes to little reminders of happiness.

Little by little, you're building your fortress of gratitude. A fortress so strong, sneaky little comparison thieves wont stand a chance at getting through to snag your joy.

Those celebrity closets filled with the latest fashion won't mean a thing to you when you're busy being focused on how awesome and confident your favorite shirt makes you feel.

The picturesque insta-mom kitchens will feel non-existent when all you can think about is how much you love the smell of chocolate chip cookies. Just like the ones that are currently baking in your less than perfect kitchen.
