8. Take Time to be Silly
“A happy atmosphere isn’t created merely by the absence of nagging and yelling but by jokes, games, and tomfoolery,” Rubin writes. But playing silly doesn’t usually occur if you’re by yourself. So look for play dates. Affecting a silly mood will not only brighten your sprits, but most likely someone else’s, too.
