Happiness is spending time with happy people. Want more happy? Hang out with people who are all about it... it's contagious!
Happiness. Choose it.
HAVE SOME FUN TODAY - There is a theory about happiness that basically says, it's a choice. Like, you wake up every day and just simply check the box "Happy" over the one called "Unhappy". And while we do think there are always exceptions, we think this is a pretty powerful way to manifest some positivity in your life.
C'mon Get Happy
The idea is simple and operates under the premise that we all have plenty of reasons to be happy or unhappy. It's like choosing chocolate or vanilla ice cream. You just choose one. At HAVE SOME FUN TODAY, we choose happy. We make it a conscious choice every day and if we need to throw on our Original Crop Tank to remind ourselves, then hell yeah, we're always down for that.
It's Science, Baby
Your thoughts are energy! You actually create physical energetic matter when you have a thought. Physicists call it a Quantum Event. That's powerful stuff. And what we create and what we put out there attracts more of the same. Happy breeds more happy.
"Every time you think a thought, you send out that thought's specific vibration. If a thought makes you feel good, if it's a "positive" thought, it is vibrating at a higher frequency. If a thought makes you feel bad, if it's a "negative" thought, it's vibrating at a lower frequency." -Melody Fletcher of Deliberate Receiving
Happiness really is a state of mind. And there are lots of ways we can get there. Here are three ways to help cultivate more of it:
1) An Attitude of Gratitude
For 30 days, write down three things a day you are grateful to have in your life. Three tangibles that you truly appreciate having. This is less about being a good person and more about being aware of positives and not all the negatives. When we start to focus on the positives as a habit, we create a new pathway for positive thoughts.
2) Work It All Out
It's been proven time and again that there's science to our workouts. Endorphins, dopamine, hormones, -all this stuff in our body chemistry shifts when we exercise and it's the stuff that makes us feel good.
3) Shiny, Happy People
Find some. Spending time with people who are generally happy and have a positive outlook is actually a huge influence on us. Positivity and good vibrations really are contagious, so surround yourself with happy people and chances are, you'll get happy, too.
Live, Love, Be Happy
Need a little more happy? We highly suggest starting with a super chic reminder like our HSFT t-shirt or our luxe tote to keep you in the right frame of mind. One thing we know for sure at HSFT is that life is too short not to have fun and joy. Our mantra, Have Some Fun Today, is meant to serve as that little nudge to stop and enjoy.
Whether it's finding a little silver lining in your day or a big piece of FUN, live your life with the intention of having "happy". There will always be low points and always be struggle, but there will also high points and ridiculously yummy parts. Life does not offer us a do-over. So happy? Yeah, we got happy. Do you?
