ON THE ROAD TO HAP­PI­NESS?

Friday - - Wellbeing -

#100DAYSHAPPY All over so­cial me­dia you’ll see people post­ing pho­tos of things that make them happy, fol­lowed by #100hap­py­days. It could be lunch with friends, a beau­ti­ful sun­set or a cute dog in the street. The idea started at 100hap­py­days.com, which asks the ques­tion, “Can we be happy for 100 days in a row?” Ap­par­ently not, “Seventy-one per cent of people tried to com­plete this chal­lenge, but failed quot­ing lack of time as the main rea­son. These people were sim­ply too busy to be happy. Are you?” Make time! LAUGH­TER YOGA We all know the say­ing, “Laugh and the world laughs with you, cry and you cry alone.” Now sci­en­tific re­search sug­gests that it’s true and that when we laugh we change our brain chem­istry and feel bet­ter. Usu­ally, we laugh be­cause we’re happy, but through the act of laugh­ing, we can make our­selves happy. Why not try laugh­ter yoga to get the gig­gles? Log on to sim­ply­laugh­ter.com/tag/laugh­teryoga-dubai. BOUNCE Leap on to the free-jump­ing revo­lu­tion that is Bounce, Dubai, and you’ll be feel­ing hap­pier in no time. Why? Well, tram­polin­ing can help to com­bat de­pres­sion, anx­i­ety and stress thanks to those happy chem­i­cals en­dor­phins. It’s great ex­er­cise and will help you re­lax, pro­mote bet­ter sleep­ing pat­terns and boost your en­ergy lev­els. And there’s got to be some­thing fun about jump­ing around like a big kid wear­ing brightly striped socks! Log on to www.bounce.ae
