The #InstahappyProject - 21 Days of Happiness at

Happiness doesn’t have to be as complicated as we often make it out to be. We often feel happiness needs to be about big things like a new car, a fancy vacation, or even a big raise, but we can choose to experience feeling happy hundreds of times a day in the little things we do. However, in order to feel happy about the little things, we actually have to stay present and pay attention to them.

We need to let ourselves feel happy and just experience when it happens by acknowledging it in our thoughts and feeling it in our bodies. We can actually choose to do things throughout the day that make us happy and don’t take a lot of time. The more often we do these things throughout our day, the more likely feeling happy will become a regular habit for us.

Here is a list of 20 things you can do daily to feel happy that take no longer than 60 seconds:

  1. Smile
  2. Laugh (even fake laugh if you need to)
  3. Have a 60 second dance party
  4. Look at a picture of a favorite memory
  5. Think of someone you love
  6. Hug someone you care about
  7. Choose to wear your favorite item of clothing
  8. Take a breath of fresh air
  9. Call a friend
  10. Practice gratitude
  11. Give yourself a compliment
  12. Be kind to someone
  13. Make plans to spend time with a fun friend
  14. Visualize your favorite place in the world
  15. Choose to forgive someone
  16.  Do one minute of deep breathing
  17. Smell something that makes you happy (a cup of coffee, your favorite candle, or flowers)
  18. Find a funny YouTube video to watch
  19. Daydream
  20. Say no to something you don’t want to do
