Happiness Hacks

5 Happiness Hacks 

  1.  Go for a run.  The rush of endorphins rocks and research shows that running may help alleviate symptoms of depression.
  2. Smile.  Real or fake, research out of Clark University revealed that smiling seems to activate the happiness center of the brain.
  3. Shower or Soak.  Hydrotherapy is an old natural health remedy and recent studies show that whirlpool bathing increases feelings of well-being and a cold shower may have an antidepressant effect.
  4. Eat Chocolate.  “Nuff said.
  5. Hug, Fist-Bump or High-Five a Pal.  Touching releases oxytocin, the love hormone.  Bow, chick a wow wow.
