Are you looking for some inspiring happiness quotes to brighten your day?
Do you know someone who needs a quick mood-boost?
You’ve come to the right place. Happiness is important because moods are highly contagious. In this post, I share ten of my favorite happiness quotes and a free resource to help you be happier now. Then boost your attitude and brighten the mood of others.
A Happiness Experiment
Before diving into the ten inspiring happiness quotes, would you try a quick experiment with me?
First, think of the happiest person you know. Now, examine your own mood. Did your countenance brighten as you focused on this happy person? For most people, simply imagining being around a cheerful friend is enough to brighten their day.
As a therapist, I can attest to just how valuable happiness is. Approximately one out of every ten Americans struggles with depression. Yet, this is only the beginning. Far more people wander through life half-awake. They are going through the motions, doing the best they know how, but still taking things one day at a time. Life is meant to be so much more than simply getting by. And happiness, your happiness, can help other people accomplish this. If you don’t believe me, consider the following:
- Happy people have more fun.
- Joyful people are more effective parents, leaders, co-works, students, Christ-followers, and friends.
- Your happiness matters because you matter.
- Happiness is important because moods are contagious. Your attitude rubs off on everyone around you.
The simple act of smiling and a word of encouragement is more significant than we realize. These acts have the power to brighten someone’s day. Yet, happiness must start with us because we cannot give to others that which we do not possess ourselves.
This is why I compiled a list of my top ten favorite happiness quotes. My hope is that these happy quotes inspire you. After you finish reading them, pass them on, and brighten the day of someone else. Happiness is even better when it shared with a friend.
So take a minute to brew a fresh cup of coffee–or other favorite beverage. Then, sit back, relax, and be happy, right now!
