14 Daily Rituals to Manifest Happiness Into Your Life!

If you’re finding it difficult to start your day with a positive attitude, you might be able to benefit from some manifestation. One manifests happiness by inviting all that you love into your life while pushing away the things that cause you pain and worry. 

Whether doing something you enjoy doing, spending time with someone you care for, or being in a place you find beautiful, there are numerous ways for you to manifest your own happiness.

The word manifest is a verb that means to ‘make things a reality through thought, feelings, and beliefs’.

Just like the law of attraction, a manifestation is a process of calling forth your thoughts to make them a reality – visualising your goals and setting out to achieve. 

This can be a complex and intimidating subject. Ultimately, the reality you choose to live in is a manifestation of your own perceptions and beliefs. You should therefore view manifestation as the golden ticket to happiness, through which you can create your own happiness. 

Here are 14 simple activities to add to your daily routine if you’re looking to manifest happiness and positivity.

1.Wake up with the sun

Waking up to a quiet household can have huge benefits for our productivity. Since those who rise early tend to go to sleep early, they are more likely to get their optimal 7 – 9 hours of sleep per night. 

With adequate sleep, you’ll be energised to start your day on the right foot and have the motivation to do what you need to in your day.

9 reasons to wake up earlier:

  1. Your circadian rhythm will develop deeper cycles of sleep and you will wake up with more energy.
  2. Improved sleep will help lower your blood pressure, slow your breathing, and relax your muscles from their tense state, while providing your muscles with added blood supply.
  3. You will have more time to exercise.
  4. There will be less traffic on your morning commute.
  5. You’ll have uninterrupted quiet time without distractions, to spend some time alone or to begin working.
  6. Your mind will be healthier and more active.
  7. You’ll have extra time to make healthy eating choices.

2.Listen to happy music

Have you ever noticed your mood drastically change depending on the genre of music you’re listening to? Music has the power to alter your surroundings and listening to music that makes you happy has psychological benefits that can help you to make time for yourself and manifest happiness.

Besides being purely enjoyable, happy music can energise the human body, relax your mind, reduce stress, and help you manage your pain.

3.Listen to your body

If you do happen to wake up on the wrong side of the bed, feeling ill or demotivated, it’s often a good idea to give your body exactly what it needs and stay in bed. 

Relaxing your mind and body with a day alone in bed can re-energise you for the rest of the week.

4.Do a morning workout

Working out in the morning, whether leaving the house for a jog or doing a training session at home, is always a good idea. Starting your day off on an active note is a great way to motivate yourself to take on the day with stride and confidence. 

The benefits of an early workout:

  • There are fewer distractions in the morning.
  • You’ll beat the midday heat.
  • You’ll wake up with heightened focus and energy
  • It’s the best time of the day to exercise if you’re trying to lose weight.
  • It will set the tone for a healthy day filled with good eating choices.
  • Regular morning exercise can regulate your appetite.
  • Early exercise will improve your attention, focus, and concentration for the rest of the day.
  • Physical activity is a mood improver and will lower your stress levels.

5.Commit to doing one nice thing for yourself every day

Whether this includes your morning exercise, your evening yoga session, or some self-care activities, giving yourself time to do something you desire and want to do is a great way to manifest happiness.

6.Cook yourself a gourmet breakfast

Waking up early will give you more time to cook yourself a great breakfast. Packing your meal with the right nutrients and making it aesthetically pleasing will spark your creativity levels and improve your overall health. 

A good rule of thumb is never to skimp on food and to always put effort into what you eat. Even if you’ll be the only one eating the meal, you should put in the effort for yourself.

7.Show gratitude and appreciate the small things

So often one hurries through the day not taking the time to appreciate the little wonders and beauty around us. 

As a form of manifesting happiness, focusing your attention on the things which sustain your happiness can bring you immediate joy and pleasure.

The simple practice of showing gratitude for what you have each day can never be overdone. A good way to extract your gratitude is to go for a long walk in nature on your own. 

You’ll have time to reflect on your life, putting small things into context and appreciating everything you are blessed with having.

8.Daily affirmations

Take out a journal and put pen to paper as you write down a few daily affirmations. Journaling is a great way to express yourself and can even help relieve stress. 

It’s a good idea to journal first thing in the morning when your mind is fresh and filled with positive affirmations.

5 affirmations for a happier life:

  1. I am confident in my ability to do my work.
  2. I acknowledge my emotions, both the good and the bad.
  3. I trust my inner intuition.
  4. I give my time to those who need it most.
  5. I make adequate time for myself and my own healing.

9.Breath and meditate

Towards the end of the day your stress, worry, and pain might begin to catch up with you. In times like this, it’s a great idea to sit yourself down in a quiet place and practice some guided meditation.

Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years to manage stress, increase self-awareness, creativity, patience, and improve your ability to focus on the present. 

It’s a mindfulness practice that is used for the relaxation of your mind and body.

10.Make self-care a part of your routine

Practicing self-care is an essential part of the law of attraction. Taking the time to take a nap or have a warm bubble bath is the foundation of our happiness. 

Self-care can help you to sleep deeper while improving your focus on your relationships with the people you love. 

Making self-care a part of your daily routine is a great way to invite self-love and appreciation into your own life.

11.Surround yourself with happy people

Positivity is contagious, and spending time with happy and positive people has the power to bring out the best in you and inspire you to manifest happiness.

The most financially successful and physically healthy people are those who approach life with happiness and positivity. You should remove yourself from toxic social scenarios and embrace time spent with your happiest friends and family members. 

12.Explore the great outdoors

Up your vitamin D exposure and spend some time in the sun. Enjoying time outdoors in nature can benefit your mental and physical health. 

5 ways the outdoors can make you healthier and happier:

  1. Looking at green trees can lower your stress levels and your blood pressure.
  2. Green space increases your ability to focus.
  3. Sunshine heightens your vitamin D levels, improving the functioning of your blood cells, immune system, and bones and allowing your body to absorb more calcium and phosphorus.
  4. Sunlight keeps your serotonin levels at a stable level and keeps you calm and collected during stressful times.
  5. Early morning sunshine improves your sleep cycles and circadian rhythms.

13.Pick some flowers and arrange them into a bouquet

A good way to appreciate the small beauties in life is to go for a walk and pick some leaves, flowers, and shrubbery. 

Carefully choosing which plants to take and arranging them in an aesthetically pleasing floral arrangement can improve your creativity levels and boost your self-accomplishment.

Having fresh flowers around your home can increase the positive energy in your living space. Flowers bring in fresh scents, textures, and colours that can inspire gratitude.

14.Drink some herbal tea in a quiet place

If you’re feeling stressed and demotivated with your current routine, it’s more productive to take a break and regenerate than to continue with what you’re doing half-heartedly. Make yourself a cup of herbal tea and drink it in a relaxing space.

Whether in your bedroom, a small courtyard, or a luscious garden, it’s ideal to make sure you have a safe and comfortable space in your home where you can go to unwind.

Tea can hydrate you while improving the functioning of your immune system, digestive tract, and even your brain.

Herbal teas and their health effects:

  • Chamomile – calms you for a good nights sleep
  • Peppermint – improves digestive tract health
  • Ginger – offers you healthy antioxidants
  • Green tea – gives you a boost of energy
  • Rooibos – helps prevent allergies and improves bone health

Final words

While it’s entirely possible for you to manifest your own happiness and positivity by following these daily rituals, it’s equally as important to accept things as they are and to be kind to yourself no matter the circumstances.
