REVEALED! The Seven Simple Things Happy People Do EVERY Day And Why You Should Squeeze Them In Your Routine

Many spend their lives trying to work out the secret to happiness.

And while the answer might remain forever a mystery, one expert believes he has come at least a little bit closer to working it out.

Dr Randall Bell, an economist, and sociologist from California, discovered happy people practice certain habits that contribute to their overall well-being.

He said: ‘When it comes to happiness, your habits matter. While studies have proven that a significant portion of happiness is linked to genetics, a whopping 40 per cent comes directly from the daily rituals that you choose to engage in.

‘So why not do what happy people do? It certainly can’t hurt.’

Here, Dr. Randall tells FEMAIL about eight simple habits happy people incorporate into every day – and explains why you should adopt them into your own routine.

1. EAT DINNER AS A FAMILY
Sitting down to eat as a family can seem almost impossible in busy households but Dr Bell insists it is worth making the effort.

2. EXERCISE
It will come as no surprise to learn that the happiest people make time for daily exercise, even if it is just a simple 20-minute walk.

3. DANCE
Dancing carries the endorphin rush of exercise with the added bonus of fostering our interpersonal relationships.

4. AVOID ROAD RAGE
Traffic jams and poor driving can send blood pressure rising but staying calm behind the wheel is an easy way to feel happier.

5. DON’T GOSSIP
It can be tempting to whisper about your colleague’s new relationship or share your friend’s secret – but toning down the gossip could leave you feeling happier.

6. ORGANISE YOUR DESK
In a fast-paced work environment, it can be easy for your desk to become cluttered and messy but it pays to keep it neat, according to Dr Bell.

7. WAVE TO YOUR NEIGHBOURS
People who walk past their neighbors without giving them a friendly wave are much more likely to be unhappy, Dr Bell believes.

If you keep up with showbiz, you know that Willy Paul and his frenemy, Bahati have been at logger heads since they both came into the industry, though they actually started out as friends.

However, the two seem to have patched things up in the last couple of months and they haven’t had beef with each other for a while now.

But fans seem to think that the two still compete in one way or the other through their stunts and behaviors. Willy Paul recently shared a picture while holding an adorable baby girl, with a caption that read; “Any questions?”

Fans did not take this gesture lightly, with some saying that he’s just copying Bahati, while others paused the question of when he will get his own kids, as others simply criticised his songs.

She said, “I don’t abuse drugs and I will never abuse drugs. If that is the scandal my enemies thought would bring me down musically, then their efforts are futile. The propagators of those rumors asked me to work with them but I refused’’

She continued, “I am not indulging in drugs in any way, and the more they talk ,the more it affects my family psychologically and emotionally.I am a mother to three children ,I have relatives. The rumor-mongers know very well I don’t have anyone who would come to my defense.’’

Does talking about other people boost self-esteem

Pope Francis recently warned gossip ‘fills the heart with bitterness and also poisons us’.

But a new study suggests that gossiping may in fact be good for our self-esteem because it allows us to compare ourselves to others.

Dutch researchers have found hearing positive and negative gossip about another individual boosts self-reflection and self-evaluation.

But they added that stories about others need to be treated with a ‘critical attitude’ about the impact it may have.

Elena Martinescu at the University of Groningen said: ‘Women who receive negative gossip experience higher self-protection concerns possibly because they believe they might experience a similar fate as the person being the target of the gossip. Men who receive positive gossip experience higher fear, perhaps because upward social comparisons with competitors are threatening.’

Professor Martinescu added gossip provided individuals with indirect social comparison information and provides an essential resource to reflect on their behaviour.
