The Seven Keys To Happiness

How often do we spend wondering if we're happy?  Are you happy with your lot in life?  There is so much social media nowadays, we sometimes forget to look at ourselves in acceptance, instead choosing to compare ourselves to others... this is a dangerous game and one we can all be guilty of from time to time. 
Here's 7 tips to helping you be the happy person you want to be:

1. Take a little exercise... feel those endorphins kick in, a speedy walk will do for now

Physical activity isn't just beneficial for your body—it's also incredibly powerful for your mental health. Even a brief, brisk walk can work wonders for lifting your spirits. As you move, your body releases endorphins, those feel-good chemicals that can help alleviate stress and enhance your mood. Our OMG Sensitive Magnesium Sprays are great to relieve muscles aches and pains after exercise. So, lace up your sneakers and hit the pavement, even if it's just for a short stroll around the block.

2. Meditate and concentrate on the here and now

In today's fast-paced world, it's all too easy to get caught up in worries about the future or regrets about the past. However, practicing mindfulness can help you cultivate a greater sense of peace and contentment in the present moment. Set aside some quiet time each day to sit quietly, focus on your breath, and let go of distractions. By bringing your attention back to the here and now, you can reduce stress and foster a greater sense of clarity and calm.

3. Surround yourself with positive and fun people

They say that we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with, so it's essential to choose our companions wisely. Seek out individuals who uplift and inspire you, who encourage you to be your best self. Surrounding yourself with positive and fun-loving people can significantly impact your mood and outlook on life, helping you to see the world through a more optimistic lens.

4. Listen to happy music

Music has a profound effect on our emotions, capable of eliciting everything from joy to nostalgia to melancholy. When you're feeling down, turn on some tunes that lift your spirits and get you grooving. Whether it's upbeat pop songs, soulful ballads, or catchy indie tunes, find the music that speaks to your soul and makes you want to sing along. Let the melodies wash over you, transporting you to a happier, more vibrant state of mind.

5. Get outside and enjoy the weather

There's something inherently rejuvenating about spending time in nature. Whether it's basking in the warmth of the sun, feeling the gentle breeze on your skin, or marveling at the beauty of the natural world, spending time outdoors can do wonders for your mood. So, step outside, take a deep breath, and immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, and sensations of the great outdoors. Whether you're exploring a nearby park, hiking through the woods, or simply sitting in your backyard, connecting with nature can help you feel more grounded and at peace.

6. Take time for yourself and do something JUST FOR YOU

In our busy lives, it's all too easy to neglect our own needs and desires in favour of taking care of others or meeting external expectations. However, self-care is essential for maintaining our mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Make it a priority to carve out some time each day to do something that brings you joy and rejuvenation, whether it's reading a book, taking a bubble bath, practicing a hobby you love or even just relaxing with the scent of one of our mood enhancing candle or reed diffusers. Remember, self-care isn't selfish—it's necessary for replenishing your energy and nourishing your soul.

7. Accept yourself for you are... you're great!

Finally, remember to be kind and compassionate toward yourself. Embrace your quirks, flaws, and imperfections, recognizing that they are what make you unique and beautiful. Instead of dwelling on your shortcomings or comparing yourself to others, celebrate your strengths and accomplishments. You are worthy of love and acceptance just as you are, so be gentle with yourself and treat yourself with the same kindness and understanding that you would offer to a dear friend.


Incorporating these self-care strategies into your daily routine can help you cultivate a greater sense of happiness, resilience, and well-being. So, prioritize your mental and emotional health, and remember to take time to nurture yourself amidst life's challenges and responsibilities. You deserve it!
