Paul Kaiser, of the Happy Comments and Happy Sayings blog, has the attitude of “instant happiness” nailed. He is a big proponent of giving and receiving happy comments and insists they can boost your happiness now.
I’m sure you’ll agree.
When you’re feeling down or a bit depressed, happy comments can help you overcome those feelings and help you live happy quickly and more often. This is great news for these stressful times, especially with the holiday season rapidly approaching.
Happy comments comes in many different forms. It can be a happy saying, a quote about happiness, an inspirational quote, a saying about life, a joke, a cartoon or even a single word. Any one of those, or a combination thereof, can be an immediate happiness booster and help make it a better day for you.
Happy comments that are read, heard or spoken to someone else can have an immediate positive effect on your psyche, helping you to feel better fast. And feeling just a little bit better quickly can lead to even more positive effects on your mind and body and, before you know it, you will feel like you’re on top of the world.
One of the most important aspects of happy comments to consider is that they can help you get a perspective on what happiness really is and, more importantly, where it comes from. Once you come to this realization, it is easier to regain happiness quickly (and more often) in difficult or unsettling circumstances.
So with all of that in mind, here’s a short list of happy comments from the Happy Comments and Happy Sayings blog:
