2. Have Goals

How ambitious are you? Turns out, people who set high goals for themselves are happier than those with lower expectations. Make a list of things you want to accomplish - both short term and long term goals. It's always good to have something to work toward!

3. Don't Make Money Your First Priority

You know that saying, "Money can't buy happiness." Well, it's true. According to U.S. News and World Report, seeking more money can actually make you less happy. Instead of focusing completely on finances, make sure you take the time to celebrate your own personal growth - What you've learned, who you've connected with, and how you've improved yourself.

4. Smile

You were late for work, got chewed out by the boss, and spilled coffee on your favorite white blouse. The last thing you want to do today is smile. However, studies show forcing a smile can actually make you genuinely happy. Not only that, but putting on a fake smile can help decrease stress. So, what's not to smile about?
