9 Ways To Find Happiness During Chaos

Updated: Oct 1, 2022



Whether you've been in a long-term relationship or have been married for years, there will be times when chaos in your relationships is inevitable. In fact, we all go through periods of change and uncertainty — whether that's a new baby, moving to another city, or just having some time away from one another. In those moments, it can seem like romance and passion are falling by the wayside. But I'm here to tell you this isn't true! Here are nine tips for finding happiness in the midst of chaos:


Listen to your favorite music


Music can be a great way to calm down, focus on the positive, and feel more positive about your life. If you're in a situation where you feel unhappy, angry or anxious and need help relaxing, try listening to one of your favorite songs or playlists. Music can help you feel more positive about your future by reminding you of other happier times in your life when things were going well for you. The music should be something that is calming and uplifting rather than aggressive; this will help put your mind at ease instead of making things worse!


Get moving


Exercise is good for your health, but it's also great for your happiness. There are several reasons why exercising can help you feel calmer and more relaxed:

  • The endorphins released by exercise can give you a natural high, making you feel happier

  • Exercise releases dopamine in the brain, which boosts your mood and energy levels

Exercise has also been linked to improved quality of sleep. This is important because poor sleep has been associated with feelings of anxiety and depression—both major factors when it comes to feeling unhappy. When we're tired or exhausted, our minds are less able to focus on what makes us feel happy or fulfilled in life; instead, they tend to dwell on negative thoughts that contribute toward unhappiness. By getting adequate rest each night (at least 7-8 hours total), you'll have more energy during the day so that these kinds of thoughts don't take over as much—and since exercising improves both mental clarity and physical strength too!


Be aware of how you think and what you say</
