Cultivating and achieving much more happiness in your life is a very real and close possibility. You just have to put in a little work.
Here are proven ways to shake off your sadness and feel happy again:
1. Get out of your comfort zone to rewire your brain
Chances are, you are unhappy because of the routine. Simply put, you’re bored but at the same time, maybe you’re a little afraid of trying something new.
Or, in a more extreme example, you might hate your job but you are too afraid to quit because you’re worried you may become broke with nothing better ahead for you.
Whatever the case may be, bringing yourself outside of your comfort zone as much as possible can result in a much more satisfying life.
Scientists have found evidence that if people step out of their comfort zone just enough, they can increase endorphins in their brain, which creates increased feelings of happiness.
