Gratitude - expressing gratitude for even the smallest things can automatically shift your mental state and outlook on life. Your thoughts, positive or negative, can affect your body chemistry.

Acts of kindness - Krummeck believes one of our core purposes in life is to give to others and is an uplifting feeling.

Smiling regularly

Savor positive experiences - Majority of people do not enjoy their work, the biggest responsibility a majority of the population has is to find some joy in their work which will transform your day into a more joyful experience.
