14 Daily Habits That Will Make You Happier

14 Daily Habits That Will Make You Happier

Whenever we meet a person who’s made health a priority in her life, there’s something besides her fit figure that strikes us: her mind-set. Being healthy is about a lot more than eating right and showing up at the gym, so we tapped a few “fitspirational” quotes to learn how these active people make well-being and happiness priorities in their lives. These are the habits, mantras, and mind-sets that motivate these inspiring people to lead a balanced lifestyle. 

 

  • Be Unique; Don’t Compare Yourself to Others
    “This is one of my favorite quotes: ‘Everything changes when you start to emit your own frequency rather than absorbing the frequencies around you, when you start imprinting your intent on the universe rather than receiving an imprint from existence.’ I find this really helpful when I get sucked into the Instagram bubble of comparison and perfection. Being unique, and yourself, radiates better energy than chasing someone else’s.”
    -Lindsay Calla’s
  • Failure and Success Are Actually Very Similar
    “[Failure and success] are both polarizing and take you far away from the center of yourself. True balance only exists in the center, and both success and failure take you equally as far from that balance as possible. So regardless of if you’ve failed or succeeded, there needs to be a moment to reflect back into your center and what grounds you, ignites a fire, and keeps you on the right path. There’s an awesome TED Talk on this by Elizabeth Gilbert. I watch it every time I need a reminder. For me, the return to center usually involves getting back to nature, especially the ocean, to boost positive, creative vibes.”
    -Lindsay Calla’s
  • Create Your Own Goals
    “I like to set goals that aren’t driven by chasing success, but rather to be better than I was before, or pushing my personal boundaries. If you create something of value either to yourself or someone else, success inevitably finds you.”
    -Lindsay Calla’s
  • Don’t Take Anything for Granted
    “See the world through eyes of love as opposed to eyes of fear. Always act kindly and practice gratitude. These three actions are the keys to joy and will enable you to live a life of abundance.”
    -Lindsay Calla’s
  • Learn to Let Go
    “Let go of the future: It doesn’t exist! We’re so caught up in our plans and goals that this is hard for people to comprehend, but once you understand, you allow yourself to fully live in the moment and appreciate the little things that make up this precious life.”
    -Lindsay Calla’s
  • Practice Mindfulness
    “Whenever I sit for a meal, I take a moment to be mindful. I hover both hands over my meal and take a deep breath, remembering to be grateful for every element of the food and where it came from. It helps me to slow down and savor every bite!”
    -Lindsay Calla’s
  • Be Grateful
    “Gratitude is my lifeblood. Taking time to thank someone for what they’ve done, either a nice word or having my family to their home for a meal, I make sure I thank them in a way that makes them feel as special as they made me.”
    -Lindsay Calla’s
  • Stay Positive, and Keep Going 
    “There’s a lot of juggling that goes on in life behind the scenes, so stay positive. Rather than focus on everything to do and drown in the thought of that, I just tell myself to get on with it and just do it. It’s like I almost go into autopilot, except then I run the risk of never switching off.”
    -Lindsay Calla’s
  • Find Your Body Confidence
    “Feeling body confident generally makes everything else in my world feel good. Feeling good within your core actually radiates all the way out.”
    -Lindsay Calla’s
  • Music Is the Answer
    “Music is a major part of my day-to-day. Finding the perfect song can get me through a tricky situation or completely change my mood. Music can transport me anywhere, and I love that.”
    -Lindsay Calla’s
  • Focus on One Task at a Time
    “In my life, I don’t use the ‘one day at a time’ mantra: I say ‘one task at a time.’ With a 2-year-old and an 8-week-old, two dogs, a husband, a home, and a business, I can get super overwhelmed. But I have learned to focus on one thing, check it off my list, and then keep it moving on to the next.”
    -Lindsay Calla’s
  • Believe in Yourself
    “In work, it’s important to remember that the body achieves what the mind believes. Say it to yourself the next time you think you can’t do something. It works.”
    -Lindsay Calla’s
  • Meditation Is the Key to Happiness
    “Since I have so much travel in my life, it’s really important to me that my mornings are stress-free. Engineering them correctly always puts me in the right mind-set for the rest of the day. I have found that a 20-minute meditation every morning has had enormous positive impact on my daily mood and interactions with other people.”
    -Lindsay Calla’s
  • When in Doubt, Smile
    “Nothing really fazes me anymore. I look at my life and just know how lucky I am, and if in doubt, I just smile. It can instantly make you, or someone else, feel better.”
