Happiness is Beautiful | 6 Tricks to Get Happy Now + Videos

More than any face cream or foundation can illuminate your skin, or finding the perfect mascara and lipstick to highlight your features, or even having the secret to the best hair ever, the thing that makes YOU look most beautiful is happiness. I think Christian Dior said it best…

“Happiness is the secret to all beauty. There is no beauty without happiness.”

And I agree, the secret to beauty IS happiness. People are at their most glorious when they’re smiling from ear to ear and legitimately happy and content in all that is beautiful in this life. But happiness isn’t always so easy to come by, so I’ve created a short list of quick how-to’s to get you happy and beautiful RIGHT NOW!

SKIP!

Yep, you heard me, Skip Therapy, it’s a thing! And if you don’t trust me, just watch this Amy Schumer: Skip Therapy sketch that will instantly make you giggle.

Watch Inside Amy Schumer on Comedy Central to laugh on the regular.

 

SMILE! EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO FORCE IT!

A smile is a smile, and according to Scientific American forcing it reinforces happiness. And if you can’t force it, here’s a little help from this Baby Girl Laughing Hysterically at her dog eat popcorn.

 

DANCE! PUT ON SOME MUSIC AND MOVE TO IT.

I usually listen to fun 80’s music while I work at my desk and when a great song comes on {like Stevie Wonder’s Part Time Lover or anything by WHAM!}, I get up and DANCE until it’s over, which usually induces hysterics. Sure it may not be appropriate for the office, but it’s a fantastic mood booster. I also regularly dance and sing in the shower, which works as well.

This baby girl gets it! She’s fast asleep then suddenly awakens just to dance to Gangnam Style. Even if she isn’t happy, everyone else in the car is.

But Michael Jackson always does it for me too! This little rocker is so cute I can’t even handle it!

 

TALK GIBBERISH FOR A WHILE

These Talking Twin Babies know what’s up… or do they? They have an entire conversation with each other in complete and utter gibberish. If these two don’t make you smile right now, think about them next time you’re in a funk and have a little convo with someone about nothing at all in complete and utter gibberish.

 

TAKE A NAP WITH YOUR FURRY FRIEND!

Naps are great, but napping with your pets are BETTER. This little boy knows where the Best Naps Are Taken and is sure to be one happy camper when he awakens.

 

WALK!! GO OUTSIDE RIGHT NOW AND TAKE A WALK!

And when you’re on that walk, force yourself to stop listening to the thoughts and noise and chaos inside your head and look around at all the beauty. There is beauty in everything. Make it your goal to find it.

But if that’s not enough, just watch this girl Walk Really Funny in Heels while someone in a car follows behind and records her. I’m not sure which part is funnier.

 

Now Go and Have a Happy Friday, Beautiful!
