100 ways to be happy, part 4:

Still on HEALTH:

20) Work out
Exercising can not only make you feel better about yourself, it also releases endorphins in your body to give you a natural high.

21) Eat chocolate
Besides releasing endorphins and stimulating serotonin production in your brain, chocolate releases phenylethylamine, the chemical that causes feelings of love.

22) Meditate
According to the Dalai Lama as well as several medical studies, meditation not only decreases stress, but also triggers a neurological response that makes you happy.

23) Do yoga
Learning to control your breathing through yoga practice helps you control your responses to stress and fear.

24) Get a massage
Besides its relaxing properties, the touch involved in massage creates warmth in your body and releases the chemical oxytocin—also known as the cuddle hormone.

25) Eat chickpeas (or other beans)
Chickpeas have an amino acid that makes you happy, and beans keep your sugar levels steady throughout the day.

26) Have sex
Numerous studies show that a healthy sexual intimacy with a caring partner can have tremendous physical and emotional benefits.

+George Haber - yet if the only time that really exists is this moment, right now, then it's not too late to change.
