Set your mood with these 10 simple tips to start your day with happiness:
1. Wake up early:
From tomorrow onward start with happy morning and try to wake up some time before than usually you do. It is difficult but not impossible. Start from 5 minutes earlier then gradually increase it up to 30 minutes earlier than usual.

Just after waking up repeat in your mind several time sentences like –“Today is a great day- there is lot of happiness wait for me and my family today”.

Wisely choose your own thought irrespective of what is happening in your life. Believe me if you preserve, your life will change automatically.
