How to be Happy

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance.

Most of the work life balance equation hinges on one thing. Making sure your relationships don’t suffer because you’re prioritizing work too much. Interestingly enough, there is one activity that will improve both. Studies also show that the same activity will also ease stress, reduce cravings, and promote better sleep.

What is this magical solution? Cuddling. Actually it’s the hormone you produce while cuddling called oxytocin, but the effects of this calming ingredient will improve your life in a multitude of ways.

In the same way that eating healthy and exercise improves your mindset along with your health in a cyclical fashion, cuddling will increase your work life balance in every way. Why? Because you’ll be happier, more connected and relaxed. Feelings we all need to have a better perspective on life.

For those of you who may not have a person or pet to cuddle with, I’ve got some good news. Cuddling isn’t the only way to produce oxytocin. There are lots of activities that will increase the levels of this hormone. Read this list for more.

It’s simple, really. Incorporating these activities into your daily life will make you a happier person, and when you’re happier, you’re also more motivated, productive and energetic.

And for once, this is motivational advice that is both easy and appealing. Also, watch this video.
