Eight happiness tips

1. Boost your energy
Stand up and pace while your on the phone, do a set of 10 jumping jacks or go for a 10-minute brisk walk outside.

2. Reach out to friends
Plan a coffee date with a close friend or send an e-mail to a friend you haven't seen in while.

3. Cross a nagging task off your to-do list
Call to make that dentist appointment, answer that difficult e-mail or go to the store to purchase that one needed item.

4. Create a calmer environment
Clean out your desk and throw away unneeded documents, organize important ones and if you are going to have piles, at least make them look neater.

5. Create the foundation to future fun
Purchase that book that you've been dying to read, plan a weekend to the museum, a dodger game or simply the beach.

6. Do a good deed
Help someone you know get ahead in some way, give a compliment or donate food items to your local shelter.

7. Act happy
Put a smile on your face even if you are faking it because just the motions of smiling boosts your mood in some way.

8. Listen to your favorite tunes
Go ahead, turn up the volume and dance your heart out...
