We’d all like to feel happier, but happiness can sometimes seem like an elusive emotion that only certain people can experience regularly. 

Happiness is a huge topic of discussion nowadays – you can walk through any self-help section of your local bookstore and see dozens of books on the topic. Research happiness on Google and you’ll notice that thousands of entries pop up. However, as much as people talk about happiness, do we really understand how it works?

While happiness means something different for everyone, you can actually do a few things each day to make it easier to feel happy.

Here are 6 habits of consistently happy people:

1. They get up early.

Studies have shown that people who wake up earlier not only feel happier, but they are more productive than their peers who sleep in. Something about seeing the sun rise while drinking a morning cup of tea or coffee allows you to reflect on life and actually have time in the morning for yourself.

Sleeping in means you’ll have to rush to make it to work on time, and also won’t have as much energy as someone who tackles tasks early in the morning before others wake up. As they say, the early bird gets the worm, and this age-old phrase obviously holds a lot of truth.

2. They exercise regularly.

Happy people also make it a point to move their bodies often – a sedentary lifestyle only clouds the mind and promotes an unhealthy body. Consistently happy people know this, as we all know that exercise releases feel-good hormones and endorphins that boost your mood and give you energy to make it through the day. Happy people care about their bodies and make sure to treat them well so that they feel their best.

3. They don’t sweat the small stuff.

The happiest people don’t let the trivial matters get in the way of their mood – they simply allow the experiences to happen, whether good or bad, and learn from them. Happy people enjoy life no matter what happens, because they know that the little stresses of life also hold valuable lessons and are necessary in order to enjoy the best things in life. Consistently happy people let the trivial matters in life roll off their shoulders, and simply get back up again when life knocks them down.

4. They make new goals and try their hardest to achieve them.

Consistently happy people also write down their goals and go after them. They don’t allow themselves to become complacent and stagnant – they constantly want to set the bar higher for themselves and achieve things they never thought were possible. The happiest people push themselves to the limit in life, and don’t allow anything to stand in the way of personal greatness, whatever that means to them.

    You’ve got to let go of what didn’t work out. Let go of the hurts and pain. Let go of your disappointments, your failures. You can’t do anything about the past, but you can do something about right now.

    Feed the hungry, care for the sick, do unto others as you would have them do unto you, a rich man will hardly get into Heaven, sell what you have and give it to the poor, I tell you again it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than a rich man to get into the kingdom of God.

    Christians are “socialists” because we reject an economic order based on private profit, alienated labor, gross inequalities of wealth and power, discrimination based on race and sex, and brutality and violence in defense of the status quo. We are “socialists” because we share a vision of a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, feminism (gender equality) racial equality and non-oppressive relationships. We must acknowledge there is a basic conflict of interest between sectors with enormous economic power and the vast majority of the population – the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

    Bernie Sanders is very much a socialist democrat. He repeatedly will tell you how much he admires Scandinavia. That region is the modern poster child for social democracy and its countries are the most progressive, HAPPIEST, and equal in the ENTIRE WORLD. Sanders is not proposing radical policies, but simply what European nations have realized is common sense. Social democrats (by the people, for the people) like Sanders want to ensure that every person has access to housing, health care, education, meaningful employment, and transportation. Furthermore, Western socialists support progressive social policies such as gender equality and tolerance of differences – kinda sounds like Jesus no?

    In particular however, Sanders advocates for three things that should be the backbone of the Democratic Party. These include reducing economic inequality, removing the rigged influence of the rich on our political system, and protecting the environment. These aren’t just issues that the far left supports. These are broadly popular issues on which our political system is massively out of step with what the public wants.

    To address these issues, Sanders wants to make our taxation system more progressive by ensuring the rich pay their FAIR share, given how much they benefit from the labor of others. He is not proposing tax increases to the poor, working, or middle classes – only the millionaires. He wants to ensure that every person has access to food, shelter, health care, and a good-paying job – alá feed the hungry, house the poor, care for the sick – sound familiar?
    Vote Bernie Sanders 2016??????
