Wanna be happy? There are some things you can do.  We have a very short list to get you started, courtesy of MindbodyGreen:

1. They think with their hearts.  Instead of trying to solve problems by overanalyzing, worrying or stressing out, the happiest people in the world trust the advice of their heart.  They're in touch with their intuition and feelings.

2. They are in love with the process. Truly happy people understand the journey is the reward. The process of reaching your goals is more about the journey.  They've learned “here” is the most important part of life.  When we can be present for the process, we can feel fully alive and joyful.

3. They are curious about the unknown. Instead of fearing the unknown or worrying about what will happen, happy people focus on what they want and take steps to make things happen.  They're curious about life and allow it to unfold naturally.

4. They put more faith in love over fear.  Happy people use their strengths and focus on what they're good at. They know their talent is more powerful than their fears. And they choose loving thoughts and perceptions over fear-based reactions.
