Happiness is synthetic—you either create it, or you don’t. Happiness that lasts is earned through your habits. Supremely happy people have honed habits that maintain their happiness day in, day out. Try out their tips, and see what they do for you:
1. No more procrastinating. If something needs to be done, you do it then and there.
2. No more eating when you’re down. You’re just going to gain weight and make yourself feel even worse.
3. Get to bed earlier. Nothing great happens after 2 am.
4. Wake up earlier. You don’t need to see the sun come up, but if the birds are chirping then you should be working.
5. Restrict your one-night stands to no more than one person per month. Anything more than that is too much of a gamble to be worth the risk.
6. Be more curious. Life may be an unsolvable puzzle, but it’s a puzzle nonetheless.
7. Give your liver a break and stop being a short step and stumble away from alcoholism.
