Learn my insight for overcoming this constant, lifelong process here on Eco Arts Living.

6 Strategies to Hack Your Way to Happiness

  1. Eat Your Vegetables

“Healthy plants and trees yield abundant flowers and fruits. Similarly, from a healthy person, smiles and happiness shine forth like the rays of the sun.” – B.K. S Iyengar

The way your body functions internally can have a large impact on your mental state of being. Eating lots of healthy and nutritious food will not only make you feel healthier and happier, but it will boost your immune system, reduce depression and improve your mood. Leafy greens like spinach and kale are high in folate, which helps produce dopamine (a happiness chemical) in the brain.

Importance of Mental Power for Fostering Self-Love

I frequently speak about the importance of self-love for finding happiness in my conversations with radio hosts and in my most recent book, Exuberant Women Don’t Age – No Time To Waste. Self-love is something that can seem elusive, but you know it when you feel it. It’s a deep appreciation for the unique quirks that make you, you. It’s the lack of doubt you feel when moving forward with your convictions. It’s knowing when to say no, and knowing when to say yes. Self-love is found first by fostering courage and toughness from within.

Find Your Mental Power

Finding inner strength begins with mental power. To achieve this, you must be consistently clear about your desires with others, but most importantly, with yourself. If you feel uncomfortable in any given situation, it’s important you recognize this sign from your mind and listen to it. When you trust your brain and its ability to make decisions for the good of yourself, you will find that it is your closest friend who can reassure you, comfort you, and give you the strength needed to enter the world like a force of nature. I like to call this inner power, “I Can Do It” power.
