Guest Post by Monika Karamchandani (30 Things to do to Feel Happy)




No one is happy all the time but there are several moments where you experience true happiness!!! And it is these little moments that string together to give you an overall sense of being happy in life.

Try these – they have really worked for me and since childhood I've always been told that you are so positive, fun and happy despite facing similar shit in life like anyone else (acne, job loss, death of a loved one, shifting countries, childbirth pain, period pain, lockdown, stress, pollution, traffic, maid on leave etc.)


30 Things to do to Feel Happy

  1. Dance like no one's watching
  2. Call a friend
  3. Play hide and seek with your kid
  4. Watch an episode of any show from your childhood (I recently watched Tom and Jerry, Small Wonder, I dream of Jeannie, Different Strokes and F.R.I.E.N.D.S is the final resort)
  5. Send a Whatsapp message to 10 contacts paying them genuine compliments. Trust me you'll receive a few compliments back
  6. Wear a sheet mask and pamper yourself
  7. Listen to Govinda and Karishma Kapoor non-stop hits while showering (pak chik pak raja babu, sona kitna sona hai, husn hai suhaana...ok now stop dancing!)
  8. Have 2 large spoons of Nutella in a bowl (or Milkmaid or Bournvita or Milk Powder)
  9. Call any grandparent and surprise them with your call
  10. Write in your dairy and read some older pages
  11. Organize any 1 drawer and throw things you haven’t used in the past 1 year
  12. Have a chocolate
  13. Play a board game with your family
  14. Watch funny videos of kids/babies
  15. Post shower just drape a towel and dance to Saturday night or mere khwabon mein jo aaye in your bedroom in front of the mirror
  16. Hug someone for 20 seconds (feel the serotonin hormone flowing)...err...someone you know and who gives consent!
  17. Sing alone on the karaoke and change some lyrics here and there, add some abuses. E.g. ILU ILU...F you F you, S you S you
  18. Shop online for a non-essential item
  19. Cook something simple
  20. Gift something to someone or give away some clothes/toys to your helpers
  21. Plan a holiday (even if you don't go, just the planning makes you happy)
  22. Read a book
  23. Learn a new language
  24. Read a filmy gossip magazine cover to cover
  25. Solve a puzzle
  26. Have sex! I know I should've started the article with this...but nevertheless!
  27. Masturbate
  28. Make a list of all the people who have had a crush on you
  29. Day dream
  30. Sit by the window, watch the rain with a cup of coffee and play some baarish songs.

  4. During this lockdown this will help people who are depressed and bored. The thing i like the most is that all these things can be done at home and do not cost much.

  9. Hey Monika, what an awesome compilation! I would definitely add, watch some kickass standup comedy, sing without worrying about going off tune, have paani puris, like there's no tomorrow,watch the sunset and yes feel the waves touch your feet along the beachside (post lockdown ofcourse) :-)

    1. Lovely ones Richa...thank you so much. Dude this love for pani puris is such a universal thing shared by all the girls i know in India!!! 😜 and off tune singing....is so much more entertaining (for yourself) than singing with the tune πŸ™ˆ
