The Key to Being Happy

Introduction: The Key to Being Happy

About: I am 16 years old and enjoy anything automotive or electronic

Have you ever found yourself in a rut? I've found that if I do the things I will list below, It not only makes me productive, but a happier person. Follow these steps

Step 1: Keep Clean

When I am unhappy I usually clean something so if something gets you down clean your house or room, organize a shelf, or anything to do with organization or cleanliness. Being in a clean environment makes it easier to appreciate and enjoy being alive. Plus cleaning takes your mind off of whats upsetting you in the first place.

Step 2: Take a Shower

Sometimes when your so deep under just go take a shower and think about all the things that are stressing you or making you unhappy and try to come up with a way to solve them. This leads to your problems seeming simpler and not as bad.

Step 3: Getting Productive

When I am upset about life,school, or something worse like the fact that were out of milk I try to build something, draw something, or just think about something creative.
I hope doing these things will cheer you up

    This is really nice. You made me smile. These things work for me too! :)

    Hello "Thecherrywolf" You have really hit on something here. Your ideas are valid but I think there are many more answers to this than 3. I hope we see others on this site add their OWN INSTRUCTABLE on how to manufacture some happiness in this life. I will quickly add a couple to your list :

    1. Play a harmonica. If you can BREATHE, you can play one. You don't even
    need to be GOOD at it, just goofing around playing music helps. By the way,
    if you try this, start with a HOHNER bluesband "C" model. only cost 5 bucks.

    2.. Go for a walk in a woodsy area or park. Walk a little... sit a little... on the park
    benches. Married? hold the wife's hand as you walk. FREE happiness 4 U.

    3... If you don't have a DOG... get one NOW. My dog gives me FACE-LICK therapy
    and SOFT-BITE-MY-HAND treatments.. for FREEEEEE!

    I could say more... but... I should make my OWN instructable on this. Hope to see others do the same. Great idea for an instructable sir/mr. Thecherrywolf

    I like to fire automatic weapons while screaming to relieve stress

    Why the hell did this come up when I searched dubstep?

    hey framistan I'm glad you channeled something deep and shared your messages like me
