In order to be happy, you need to surround yourself with people that are happy too. Sounds simple right?But what happens when those that surround you tend to bring you down? You don’t want to be dragged into a depressed state that only fuels your own negative thoughts. The best way to get out of a situation like this is to not only surround yourself with happy people, but to also spread happiness to those you surround yourself and Get Happy in 60 Seconds

Bringing happiness onto others will not only help them, but it will help you. There is no greater feeling in the world than putting a smile on someone else’s face. Become addicted to making other people happy- rather than wallowing in your own sorrows and self-pity.

The real power of a person comes from the smile they can put on another’s face. Spreading the joy should become motivation to move on, learn from mistakes and grow as a person. Extending happiness onto other people will create a chain reaction that can spread farther than expected. This cause and effect will bring light into your life, as well as friends, family and even strangers.

To bring someone up who is down is a challenge, but a rewarding challenge nonetheless. One way to do this is simple: smile more. When you look at yourself in the mirror, smile. When you pass a stranger on the street, smile. A smile is a reminder that everything is going to be okay, regardless of the world around you. You will be pleasantly surprised with the positive affect it has onto others and yourself.

With some people, it may take more than a smile. There are some people in this world where the pessimism overrules the optimism and contaminates the human body and mind. Make it your mission to spread happiness to them as well!

You know the saying “look at a glass half full rather than half empty”? Well, that saying holds true in any situation. Looking for the positives will ALWAYS outweigh the negatives. When someone is trying to bring you down, work even harder to bring them up. You will find yourself happier, and surrounded by happier and healthier people!
