Bummed that the Bank Holiday weekend is over?
Let these Detroit school kids cheer you right up with their rendition of Pharrell William’s Happy.
The talented kids of Detroit Academy of Arts and Sciences choir raise the roof with their version of the Oscar nominated hit.
The way we feel can have a huge influence on our health – the happier you are, the easier it is to face the day’s challenges.
It’s not hard to feel happy, try it:
Be grateful for what you have. While this may sound cheesy, counting your blessing can help you realise how good you have things which will in turn boost your happiness levels.
Get some fresh air
As your ma would say, “a bit of fresh air will do you the world of good”. It’s true, being cooped up surrounded by constant images of other people being happy on social media will put a dampener on your mood. Go for walk and breathe in nature.
Have a laugh
Get laughing. Put on your favourite comedy show, Google a few jokes whatever it takes but make sure you have a good belly at least once a day
Say hello to people you meet on the street, give a smile and say thanks to the person who serves your coffee or compliment a friend. Being kind to others will go a long way in making you feel happier within yourself.
Pomplamoose have crossed Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams’ Get Lucky with Pharrell’s Happy and the results are amazing!
Prepare to hit repeat!
It’s time to ditch the negative thoughts and believe in yourself.
How a person views themselves is the strongest part of the personality, but it is also the biggest downfall. A good self image is important for a healthy mind and the key to creating a positive one is to believe in yourself.
Embrace the positives
Instead of accentuating the negatives, embrace the positives. Can’t complete the 10k without stopping? Applaud yourself for finding the determination to try in the first place.
Surround yourself by people who love you
Ditch the “bad” friends who try to bring you down and surround yourself with people who love you.
Remember your successes
Grab a piece of paper and write down all your successes. You will eventually see that you can achieve anything once you put your mind to it.
Be your own best friend – if you’re not nice to yourself, who will be?
Take a leaf out of Muhammad Ali’s mantra – “I am the greatest”
This is sure to brighten your day.
