20 Happiness Hacks That Will Improve Your Life (SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN)

12. Gratitude is a happiness booster

It has been proven that gratitude increases happiness, so be grateful for all the little things in life. In one study, participants were divided into 3 groups and one group was instructed to write about things that had happened during the week they were grateful for.

The second group wrote about things that had displeased them, and the third group wrote neither positively or negatively about events that had an effect on them. The participants who made gratitude notes were happier and more optimistic.[13]

What to do: Set time aside each day for counting your blessings, reflecting on one or more events that took place that day that you were grateful for.
