- Daily physical activity
Physical activity, as simple as walking briskly or jogging for 30 minutes, can increase your happiness. It has even been shown that exercise can help patients recovering from depression.

Scientific studies show that by writing for twenty minutes about a positive experience people can increase their happiness. How does it work? If you write about a positive experience, you actually relive it and the good emotions associated to it.

Regular meditation practice increases your levels of happiness by permanently rewiring your brain.
Every day write down three to five things you’re grateful for.
