Dentist Ashburn VA | 6 Ways to Be Happier Now

This holiday season, our dentist in Ashburn invites his patients to take a moment and enjoy life and all it has to offer.

According to WebMD, below are a few easy tips on how to make your day just a little brighter!

No. 1
Give Thanks
Happy people aren’t smarter or richer than their peers, but they are more grateful and often have these characteristics.

No. 2
Focus on Physical Activity
You don’t need to run marathons to reap the benefits of exercise. Even short workouts release certain brain chemicals that create feelings of joy and contentment.

No. 3
Eat Feel-Good Foods
While there’s no “happiness diet,” some foods — like Thanksgiving turkey — can give your mood a lift and may help ward off depression.

No. 4
Snuggle Up
Touching and hugging can release your body’s natural “feel-good hormone.” Plus, sex and intimacy can boost your self-esteem and happiness, among other health perks.

No. 5
Give Back
As little as 2 hours of volunteering a week can give you that happy glow known as the “helper’s high.”

No. 6
Tune In
Listening to music can provide an emotional pick-me-up, but choose wisely. Some songs may bring you down.
