dont take love for
granted..
if you're lucky enough to have a special someone, then you should make your time together meaningful..dont stop doing the things you love with the person you love, making time to say "I love you", or just spending time with your special someone..being around your loved one and having positive interactions with him or her has been proven to make people happier, so dont shrug off this obvious mood-lifter if you have the chance to use it..
if you do have a partner, then having regular sex, at least a few times a week, has proven to help people stay in a good mood, too! you may think that, just because your worries are work or school related, that your loved one wont be able to make you feel better about it..that's where you're wrong!

get regular exercise.. this will release endorphins that will improve your mood..regular exercise is one of the most important habits that you want to cultivate..on average, you should get at least 30 minutes of exercise a day, but you dont have to do the same boring old thing every day..you can go running three times a week and walk the other four you can do yoga four times a week and give yourself an off day or two..just make sure to be as active as you can every day, whether this means taking the stairs instead of the elevator or walking instead of driving..

spend time with your
friends..
hanging out with friends will keep you feeling energized, excited about being alive, and like you're really spending time with the people who care about you..of course, if you're always hanging out with friends when you have a free moment, you may actually feel a bit overwhelmed and like you have no time to decompress..make sure you do make time to see friends at least once or twice a week, if you can..the next time your friends beg you to come out when you're feeling too lazy or sorry for yourself, come out! you'll feel better right away..

of course, if you're not feeling it, you dont have to hang out with your friends..but if you make spending time with friends a bigger priority, then this habit will lead to a better mood, long term..

and hey, if you spend time with friends who tend to be happy and love laughter, then they'll make you feel happier, too..if you're hanging out with a bunch of debbie downers, then you wont be on your way to a better mood..

get enough sleep.. make sure to sleep for at least 7-8 hours a day and to go to bed and wake up around the same time every night to get into a healthy routine..one of the easiest ways to stay in a good mood is to be well-rested..waking up feeling full of energy will make you feel much more ready to face the day and much more excited about everything ahead of you -- and more capable of dealing with it..make sure that sleep is a priority over watching late-night TV or doing other tasks you can save until the morning..

think positive thoughts
before bed and after
you wake up..
read a
good book or watch a feel-good movie and then journal before you go to bed..have a positive conversation with your loved one before you drift off..whatever you do, dont do anything too stressful, like writing a paper or upsetting, like watching crimes on the nightly news, before you drift off, or you'll be more likely to have bad dreams and restless sleep and to wake up cranky..

make time for your
passion..
whether you're working on your novel or love sculpting, make sure to give yourself enough time to pursue your passion throughout the week, even if it feels like you have a million other things going on..at the end of the day, doing what you really love will make you feel better than doing what you really need to do, and if you want to be a happy person who is able to stay in a good mood, then you've got to make time for what you really love..

write down your
thoughts..
whether you have a journal or a blog, making a habit of writing down your thoughts at least a few times a week can help you stay in a better mood..journaling allows you some quiet time and lets you reflect on the things that happened to you so you dont feel overwhelmed by them later..it helps you focus on what is important to you and allows you to forget about your phone, your facebook, or any other distractions in your life while you focus on the things that really matter to you..
