Singing and dancing will make you happy
1. Seeing people singing in their car
Everyone does it.
When your song comes on, it is almost impossible not to belt out the words and sing along.
Getting caught singing in the car or catching someone singing in the car will immediately make you smile.
2. Dancing when no one is watching
There is something so alluring about plugging in headphones and jamming to music.
Dancing shows so much expression, and you can start moving when you are alone and carefree.
Blocking out surrounding sound and being in the moment, what’s better than that?
3. When you realize you have been singing a song wrong for years
Yeah, that’s always a little mind-blowing.
The second someone calls you out on it, you can’t help but think it is pretty funny.
Plus, who knows if you have been saying those lyrics wrong for this long?
What else are you singing wrong?

4. Talking to strangers
Whether it is a quick hello passing on the street or a random conversation that comes from a common interest.
Talking to strangers is a simple pleasure that more people should indulge in.
5. When you or someone else does a random act of kindness
Things like paying for someone’s coffee or helping a stranger carry heavy bags.
It is so easy to do, and it gives you a happy feeling throughout the rest of your day.
Even witnessing someone else doing a good deed can give you a feeling of joy.

6. Decorating for holidays
The warmth and coziness of redecorating your home for the holidays is such a nice feeling.
It is a simple yet effective way to bring happiness into your home and your life!
7. Stepping on crunchy ice
I remember doing this as a kid and LOVING it.
The ice is so thin that it feels like you are breaking glass when you step on it.
Maybe that’s just me, but I will still step on crunchy ice as an adult.
8. Snow days!
Who doesn’t love a snow day?
I mean, it’s the perfect time to stay in that cozy bed I was talking about earlier.
9. Getting good fortune in a fortune cookie
I take my fortune cookies seriously.
So getting a good one always makes my day.
Even if you don’t believe in fortune cookies, getting one that is relevant to your life and adds positivity to your every day can be the best feeling.

10. Trying something new and being good at it
Trying something new can be scary.
Whether it is a new recipe, you are attempting or trying a new activity, like yoga or golf.
Finding out you are good at something you have never done can be a huge accomplishment!
It can even give you the push to try other fun activities.
Climbing trees, hiking and getting lost, or even wandering around an old building.
Exploring random places always seems to get me thinking.
Find Happiness in just being human
12. Laughing so hard that you can’t breathe
It doesn’t matter what the situation is.
When you laugh so hard, you can’t breathe; it’s one of the best feelings.
Laughter is contagious, so your laughter can even provide some happiness for the people around you!
13. Waking up comfortably
My favorite is waking up after a snowstorm, your bed is at the perfect temperature, and you are so cozy and snuggled up.
It is best if you don’t have any obligations that day, and you can just rest up and enjoy the comfy warmth of your bed.
