Learn to be grateful
I’ve already said it and I’ll keep repeating – key to being happy is to be grateful 🙏. You need to learn to appreciate what you have, to feel happy about the little things, to feel gratitude 🤗. You can’t take anything for granted, even such „simple” (some would say 🙄) things as being able to see or having a roof over your head.
If you think that you don’t have anything to be grateful for go and do a volunteering at a hospice 🏥 or child care home 🏠. Talk to those poor children, ask them what makes them happy, tell them your story and see what they think about it, if you really don’t have anything to be grateful for 😏.
Go and spend a day with a blind person. Or even better – cover your eyes for 1 whole day and try to live and do normal every-day activities.
Go and live on a street for one night. Try to get some food. Find a place to sleep 😨.
::: Go and do all those things.
Still nothing to be grateful for?
Think about it. ⚠️
People keep forgeting about the most basic things and they tend to take them for granted whereas we should be grateful to be healthy, to be able to see, to have a family, to have 2 hands and 2 legs everyday. ⚠️
I sure am. 🙏

What do you know about endophin, famous hormone of happiness?
Endorphins are chemicals produced naturally by the nervous system to cope with pain or stress. They are often called “feel-good” chemicals because they can act as a pain reliever and happiness booster.
The well-known “runner’s high” that is felt after lengthy, vigorous exercise is due to an increase in endorphin levels.
The level of endorphins in the human body varies from person to person. People who have lower levels may be more likely to have depression or fibromyalgia, but more research is needed in this area.
How to get your body to produce more endorphins?
Here are couple ways to boost the production:
🔸️Regular exercise 💪
🔸️Giving (Volunteering, donating, and helping others may also make a person feel good) 🤝
🔸️Yoga and meditation 🧘🏼♀️
🔸️Spicy foods 🌶
🔸️Dark chocolate 🍫
