My goal here at Skinny Belle is to share my favourite tips and tricks on how you can live your best possible life. A big part of being your most beautiful and exuberant self is feeling HAPPY! A smile is worth a million bucks, and in the famous words of Audrey Hepburn, “I believe that happiest girls are the prettiest girls.”
So today I bring you Skinny Belle’s 5 Simple Ways to Be Happier. These are all things I do in my everyday life, and have found to put me in an awesome positive mindset. When you set out to conquer the world, you want to be happy. Negativity is like a disease that brews and grows inside you and ultimately affects your outside life. Happiness is a mindset, and we are all in control of our minds. There are many things in life that you can’t control, but what goes on in that big beautiful brain of yours is all up to you!
Ladies, let’s take on the world together. And be freakin’ happy as hell while doing it. 😀
Without further adieu, here are 5 Simple Ways to Be Happier.
You are what you eat. Eat like shit, feel like shit. Eat like a queen, feel like a queen. What you put in your body has a serious impact on how you feel! Think about the last time you crushed a pint of ice cream or sat at home and ate a large pizza. Chances are you did not feel very happy after. When you eat a wholesome nutritious meal you will feel satisfied and happy because you know you have done something good for your body.
Dress for success. Why does it matter what you wear? I dareee you to tell me you don’t feel happy when you look fabulous. (Tell me!!) Really, who doesn’t have that extra bounce in their step when they know they are looking fine AF. When you mindfully put yourself together, you will have an aura of confidence, happiness, and success about you. It feels good to look good, so take an extra minute to put together something decent to wear and happily feel like a #GIRLBOSS all day long.
I am alllll about them endorphins. Seriously, I get high on life from working out. (Yes, I am that person.) Even if it is just a power walk/jog, it feels SO good to get your body moving. You will become more alert, feel great, and have a huge boost in your mood!
“Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t!”

Hang out with positive, awesome people who make you want to be the best version of yourself. Surround yourself with only people who make you smile. After all, nobody likes a negative Nancy. Friends who just want to bitch and whine? Cut them outttt girl. You don’t need those people killing your positive vibes! The best friends are the friends who can laugh with for hours. I don’t know about you guys, but when I hang out with my besties I legit can never wipe that stupid smile off my face because they make me so damn happy.
Pump Them Tunes!
Hit up your Spotify and blast the happy tunes! I am a big fan of just throwing on a “feel good” or “girl power” playlist, and rocking out by myself. (Super cool, I am aware.) Dance around your apartment like an idiot, and feel fantastic. I legit have no shame with this haha. I cant sing, am an average dancer at best… But putting on happy songs and dancing about puts a smile on my face like no other.
A happy mindset is a mindset for success. So try these 5 Simple Ways to Be Happier, and set yourself up to feel and look great.
