You know the kind of people who walk through the front door every morning with big smiles on their faces?
How do they manage to be so happy?
Are they on a good path? Maybe it’s all that psilocybin microdosing, or maybe they just have a genetic predisposition to happiness.
All of these things are possible, but I’ll tell you what’s most likely: They probably make themselves happy by focusing on the things in their life that bring them pleasure and contentment.
These are people who have realized that happiness is a state of mind that they can create on their own, regardless of the circumstances.
So they choose to do things to improve their lives, and they don’t even wait for the day to take its course. Instead, they get the ball rolling as soon as they wake up, choosing activities that enrich their lives.
Want to know their secrets?
Sure, so here are 10 things that truly happy people do every day before 9:00 a.m.
1) They get a good night’s sleep.
I don’t know about you, but other than that rave I went to when I was 22 where I danced all night on energy drinks and pizza and went to work the next day in feeling good; Normally I don’t feel happy when I haven’t slept!
If I don’t sleep an average of seven or eight hours a night, I turn into a real grump.
It’s pretty normal for people to sleep well below this amount of sleep recommended by sleep experts.
This makes a lot of sense, because when you sleep, a whole bunch of really cool things happen.
Your body repairs damage, produces new cells, rests and relaxes. Your brain eliminates toxins and uses sleep time to consolidate memories.
Getting enough sleep also protects you from developing heart disease, diabetes, and many other conditions.
What’s not to like?
2) They wake up without an alarm.
You know how much happier you feel on the weekends when you wake up naturally instead of jumping out of bed to the sound of your alarm?
It’s not just the absence of annoying sound that makes you feel better.
How long you sleep and when you wake up from it are also extremely important.
We humans are not like switches where we are awake or asleep, and that’s it.
We go through progressively deeper phases of sleep that occur in cycles, and these cycles last on average 90 minutes.
If you’ve ever woken up after a short nap and felt recharged, you’ll know that waking up from shallow sleep is no problem. But if you wake up after 40 minutes of sleep, you normally feel terrible, right?
You are disoriented, unfocused and still groggy.
Well, if your alarm wakes you up during a deep sleep phase, you will continue to experience this every day. You’ll be inclined to repeat it over and over instead of jumping out of bed with a smile on your face.
Truly happy people get enough sleep and find it easy to get up early without alarm because they have taken good care of themselves.
3) They eat well.
To eat or not to eat breakfast. That is the question.
I’m pretty sure that’s what Shakespeare was actually trying to say when he wrote his famous play about a ham omelette.
Am I remembering it wrong?
Breakfast may or may not be the most important meal of the day, and while I can’t live without it, I know plenty of people who feel sick if they eat in the morning.
However, if you plan to eat breakfast, it is important to eat something that is good for you and not highly processed junk food.
Protein-rich foods are a great choice in the morning because they help replace the protein your body uses to repair tissues overnight. There is also evidence that eating protein in the morning can help you lose weight by keeping you feeling fuller for longer.
Truly happy people take care of their bodies as well as their mood, and one way they do this is by eating well. They receive the macronutrients and essential vitamins and minerals they need to stay healthy.
4) They get caffeine into their bloodstream.
You don’t have to drink coffee or tea in the morning to have energy and be bright and cheerful.
But it doesn’t hurt!
Caffeine has been shown to improve your concentration, alertness, and even help improve your working memory. Not only that, but it also works as a physical performance enhancer that helps you lift more and respond faster.
Pretty awesome, right?
Just be aware of the spectrum of caffeine addiction.
If you’re an absolute beast before you have your morning coffee, you might want to take a look at your dependence on this powerful chemical.
5) They move.
Most people who are really happy in the morning get a lot done before 9:00 a.m.
They are motivated to take advantage of the early morning hours and do things that will positively impact their entire day.
That’s why so many happy people take time to exercise in the morning.
Look, you lay there paralyzed with sleep all night.
Doesn’t it seem like you should get up and shake off the cobwebs?
You’ll often see happy people at the local swimming pool at dawn, at the gym for a morning session, or jogging in the morning fog.
Rather than resenting these happy, healthy people or swerving them with your car, why not emulate them?
If you do what they do, you might become really happy too!
6) They plan.
Do you know what one of the biggest wastes of time in the world is?
This is the main reason why truly happy people plan their days early in the morning. When they sit down and think about all the tasks they need to do and the things they need to get their hands on, they forget less.
They save a lot of time that others waste going in circles.
They also organize their time and prioritize the tasks they need to accomplish so they don’t waste even more time straying from their goals.
7) They spend time with their loved ones.
If you wake up in the morning and start playing with your phone before you even talk to the people in your house, you might have a phone addiction.
I know it’s extremely tempting, but it’s also not something that will bring you the happiness you’re looking for.
So try to leave the phone where it is and spend quality time with your partner, your children or the person you live with.
These human connections give meaning to our lives and are much more valuable than checking your Insta updates!
8) They take time for gratitude.
Gratitude is consciously thinking about the good things in your life that you are happy about.
This could be the people you care about, the material things you own, your home, and the good things you have experienced.
Focusing on the positives in life, even if you feel like you have very few, can make a huge difference in how you feel.
Many people practice gratitude by journaling or even thinking out loud.
If you are healthy, have a home, have a job, or have great relationships, focus on what you have and not what is missing in your life and see if you become not also a truly happy person. .
9) They perform self-care routines.
Self-care can refer to the things you do to take care of your physical and mental health.
Many truly happy people do both.
You can focus on skin care or personal hygiene and develop a routine that keeps you looking and feeling great.
For your mental health, you can meditate or do yoga to relax and calm your mind.
Some people make affirmations, telling themselves they are valuable and focusing on positivity.
Either way, taking a little time to take care of yourself every morning can be very rewarding.
10) They focus on the here and now.
Truly happy people manage to fit one more thing into their mornings.
They focus on reality and live in the moment.
This helps them avoid living too much in the past or worrying too much about what might happen in the future.
Instead, they anchor themselves in the here and now and try to live each moment to the fullest.
These ten things that truly happy people do every day before 9 a.m. have one thing in common.
These are all small, easy actions that add up to big results.
If you want to bring more happiness to your life, try adding them one at a time to your morning routine.
Before long, you may discover that you are one of the truly happy people we are talking about!
