Thoughts to Make You Happier in Just a Few Seconds


Everything shall pass.

We all have our worst and best moments, successful and failure seasons. Life does this to us all. When life is at its worst and the center can no longer hold. When life’s storms seem to rage and the tussle seem to beat hard, remember this one thing: 

Everything shall pass.

It shall soon come to pass. Be strong. You are bigger than the challenge. This positively re-energizes the body and gives one a fresh strength to rise above the storms.


Others have won and you are no exception.

When you are down and feel that you are all alone, most people have successfully gone through that situation. Remember happiness is not the absence of struggles but the ability of dealing with and overcoming them. That person next to you has fought fierce battles and won. You are no exception.

Keep the winning spirit.

Others have won. Keep in mind that no one is stainless. No one is without a dark spot in their life. We all have our dark past. Do not dwell on your mistakes. Do not focus on what went wrong and where the rain began beating you. You can at best learn from the mistakes and move forward. Do not view the floods in your life negatively, at other times they may translate into future growth. Remember there is a difference between giving up and moving on.


People are nice.

What others think about you is not essential. You cannot control other people, be it what they think about you or what they do to you. However, you can control what you think or take the things they do to you. Forget people’s feelings and thoughts about you. Think happiness. 

It is your choice. 

When negative thoughts get into your mind, substitute them with happy thoughts. Even when you have a friend who messed you, choose to be positive about everything. Regard such occasions as timely teachers who come to your life at the right moment. This will lead you to instant happiness.


There will be light at the end of the tunnel.

By focusing on the dark side of life, you will never find anything to make you happy. Make positivity your culture and see possibility in all dark situations. This way you will always expect the best to happen. This is a state of mind worth developing. 

There is always a bright side.

Focusing on the illumination at the end of a burrow fills your whole life with happy and light thoughts. This light affects not only you and the way you look at the world but also your surrounding and the people around. It radiates all around you.


Take it easy and breathe deeply will help.

Ensure you hold your breath at intervals before releasing it. Breathe in and out successively well. Slow down a bit and focus on one thing at a time to make sure that you wouldn't be messed up by all the anxiety and turmoil.

Yes, let go of the pressure, let go of the pain.

This will help you let go of the issues that are burdening you. It will also help stitch the flaws with good intentions thus getting the best of the condition. Fill the vacuum left with good. Do not hold any breath that carries negativity. Let it go.


Thank all of you.

This is an instant thought to boosting happiness. Showing appreciation brings a good feeling and every cell in your body rejoices resulting in a stronger and cohesive system. 

Thank heavens for everything that you have. 

Be thankful of everything you have, however small they may be. This creates a positive attitude that makes all things good with happy thoughts. Positive thinking leads to happiness as it helps you to easily cope with the daily issues in your life.


Good things will happen.

Surround yourself with positivism: positive people, positive thoughts and positive moves. Focus on the potential deep within you. Remember that a small negative thought can result in an enormous mountain of ugliness while a minute positive spark may have the effect of a blossoming and dazzling outcome. 

Be optimistic and everything will just be fine.

If you must call a friend, call one who will put issues in perceptive rather than feed you with negative thinking. Positive mind will impact your relationships in life as well as better productivity in other life’s realms.


Money is good, countless things are better.

There is an old adage that money does not buy happiness, which is absolutely true. Money gives circumstantial happiness. Pleasure derived from what money can buy does not last for long at times. 

There're things far better than money.

Take for instance, money can buy you beer and have fun with friends. Even though happiness exists at such a moment, pain may follow later when you calculate how much you spend unsparingly. So one of the happy thoughts is - always keep in mind that money does not buy happiness, it’s the thought of what you can do with it that leads to happiness.

  • Happiness can be found in pleasure (things that bring joy at that time), finding meaning (in philosophy, one’s beliefs and religion) and associations such as those of friends.
  • Things that occasionally boost our welfare such as religion and exercise can give us happy moments.
  • To be happy, stay occupied. Being idle or watching your TV cannot give you real happiness.
  • Engage your mind and act quickly. Take enough rest.
  • If staying with friends is all you can do to be happy, do it.
