5 ways to help you feel happier


We live in a fast paced world but experts insist that you recharge and give yourself a break.

1. Turn off the TV: The content of most television programs encourages overload, anxiety, stress and status envy. Who needs that? Instead spend in other creative ways that actively reduce overload like Yoga or talking to your partner. 2. Go on an Internet diet:  Always being online can affect your productivity and create overload as our brains can cope with only one thing at a time. Limit your browsing and cut down on or break free from online groups. 3. Cut out caffeine: Almost every overworked person relies on it, yet it actually increases overload. After the caffeine rush your energy levels will slump lower than before and you¹ll need another fix. 4. Limit your choices: Find brands that work for you and stick with them. Control your expectations and learn that the must have bag or shoes wont change your life. Look for what gives your life meaning 5. Let Go: The biggest positive change you could make is to drop the myth that doing it all is possible. It¹s important to give thought and attention to what you do. But you need to know when something is good enough and be content.
