10 Sign Of Truly Happy Person

Going with friends out there, trying something new, surfing the net, playing games are sort of temporary fixes that can look you feel happy for some time but this doesn't make you truly happy. Here are 10 inner state satisfaction signs to decide are you really happy or not.

Daily Exercise - Happy people are also more likely to engage in health-promoting behaviors, according to a recent study at the University of North Texas. Similarly, the American Psychological Association has found that exercise significantly decrease depression across all the age categories and both genders.

Happy friends - Each new happy friend you have increases your probability of being happy by about 9%.

Smart thrills - Happy people don't need to dive 50 feet into gorge or snort cocaine in order to get their kicks. They're content with reality, and understand that reckless leads to wreck more.

Enough sleep - Unhappiness hinders sleep, and a low stress level promotes a good night's sleep. So if you're feeling energized by complete rested, most likely you are a pretty comfortable celebrity. Bounce fact: Making $60,000 more in annual income has less of an effect on your daily happiness than getting one extra hour of sleep a night.

Self-Trust - Those who always doubt their own judgment are especially prone to a wide range of psychological problems - such as mood swings, lower self-esteem, anxiety and depression.

Live in the now - When people's mind drift from the task or activity at hand, they are less grateful than when fully engaged in whatever they are doing. Bonus fact: People spend nearly 47% of their waking hours with their minds wander ... I'm sorry, what were we talking about?

Gratitude - Use the resources that you have. Instead of focusing on what don't have, recognize and make the best of your own gifts. Happy persons are characterized by the appreciation of life's great pleasures, and calm people feel more gratitude in their lives.

Bounce back - A baseline level of contentment is an emotional safe-harbor. Happy people leave occasionally for bouts of blues or bliss, but are able to return easily and naturally rather than constantly swinging from despair to euphoria.

Get unplugged - Want to be happier? Turn off the plasma screen. Study shows that people who spend the most time watching television or videos are the least happy in the long run.

Smile - Happy people smile from the inside, their mouths turning up at the edges without their control.
