    Slap on a Smile

    Break a Sweat

    It can take as little as 5 minutes for exercise to put you in a better mood. Moving your body also has good long-term effects: Regular exercise helps keep depression at bay.

    Turn on Some Tunes

    Music can have a powerful effect on your emotions. Pick your favorite music mix and get into the groove. Youíll get a real feel-good vibe.

    Make New Friends

    It makes you feel good to spend time with people who care about you. So be open to new relationships, whether itís someone you meet at the office, gym, church, or park. But be sure to maintain those lifelong connections, too. Studies show the more connected you are, the happier you are.
