Happiness Hack #43 – Practice Your Happy Dance

Have you ever watched a 4 year-old when they found out they get to go to Disney World, or a six-year old when they finally learned to ride a bike or hit a baseball. They celebrate their wins and successes with little dances of happiness and joy. As we grow older we lose that ability to express our joy. We become more serious, start worrying about what people might think of us, and ignore our small successes because we are focused on the bigger goals in life. We are drifting past our opportunities to be a little happier.

Start practicing your happy dance. Do it alone in your bedroom behind a locked door if necessary, but practice how you would act if something great happened to you. Then start practicing on little successes. Do your Happy Dance when you get to work early because of no traffic, or when a good friend reaches out to you, or when you get a great birthday present. Do your Happy Dance just because you know it is going to be a great day.

How many moments in your life can you find to celebrate? The more small moments you can celebrate, the more joy and happiness you can bring into your life and the lives of others.

Do your Happy Dance!


“No matter what, do the Happy Dance once a day. It is your own physical expression of sheer joy.” Mary Frances Winters

My Passion is helping people become successful and happy. I have found that many people want to be successful but just don’t know how. More importantly, people want to be successful because they feel that reaching some success pinnacle will result in them becoming happy. The research and my experience has shown that just the opposite is the case. Success does not lead to happiness. Happiness leads to success.
