· Value experiences over things
Learn to value experiences over things or possession, things will give you happiness for a limited period of time but experiences stay with us forever. Good experiences or bad ones, we all laugh or smile at them later in life. So focus more on gaining experiences than on possessions. For instance, instead of buying expensive mobiles to play games or see videos, enjoy playing games in reality and not virtually. Go on a vacation, spend time with family, these experiences are going to stay forever with you.
· Stop recreational shopping
Recreational shopping is shopping done to refresh yourself, to find happiness and to relieve stress. But how long does this happiness last? Not even a week! It is therefore recommended to avoid recreational shopping, buy things only when necessary or things that would enhance your experiences. Buy things to gift someone but avoid wasting money to be happy by buying useless stuff. Instead, invest that money, help someone in need and I am sure you’ll be happier, more satisfied and definitely relieved from stress.
· Practice gratitude
Gratefulness is so powerful tool to make you happy. Being grateful for all the good and bad things in your life is very much Important.
