Add in the resulting endorphin rush and your spirits should surge, to ways to get happy fast.VentYou dont even need a human handy: A report in Psychological Science found that when people scribbled down negative thoughts on a piece of paper and threw it away, they were much less affected by them later; evidently, chucking bad vibes tells your brain they are gone for good. So go ahead and ll the garbage with Boss says the proposal I worked on for three weeks is a great start/ Neighbor says I look like my Corgi in a good way/Friend just said, I love how youre not obsessed with your clothes.Change Your WalkTime to master the Beyonc strut. In a study in the Journal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry, people were shown positive and negative words. Then they were made to walk in a happy, condent style (arms swinging, head thrown back) or a grumpy, get-away-from-me way (shoulders rolled forward). Afterward, the hunched-over group remembered many more negative words than positive onessuggesting that their stroll style doomed them to a gloomy mind-set.Rethink Your CommuteOf all commuters, people who ride bikes to work have the sunniest moods, according to a study from Clemson University in Clemson, S.C. Thank the combination of exercise, mood-lifting nature and not having to deal with a stalled car. Bus riders are far crankier. (Also, they dont get to wear cool bike-riding gear.)Ask Two QuestionsWhen the day threatens to go south, psychologist Guy Winch, PhD, asks himself, Is this worth being in a bad mood for? And then he considers, Is this something Im going to remember in a months time?Instant perspective.There Are Good-Mood Foods SWEET POTATOES: Research shows that the folate and other B vitamins pump up serotonin anddopamine, neurotransmitters that improve mood to get happy fast.BANANAS: They're full of tyrosine, a building block for neurotransmitters.EGGS: Their balance of fat and protein stabilizes blood sugar levels. QUINOA: This seed is lled with protein, B vitamins, magnesium and iron, all of which can help regulate serotonin levels (evening out your mood) and prevent fatigue and depression.TOMATOES: Cooked ones, in particular, can aid in mood control because theyre rich in lycopene, which ghts inammation that can stress your body out.AVOCADOS: They are packed with healthy fats, including omega-3s, which have been shown to boost disposition.COCONUT OIL: The medium-chain triglycerides it contains can improve the brains production of serotonin. (Plus, as hip-hop artist Big Sean tweeted recently, U can damn near use/put coconut oil on everything).
