Of course, maintaining and obtaining a healthy weight are significant, but there are many other important things that will help you to be happier this New Year. Here are 10 advices on how to be happier in the New Year.

The most important thing you should stop doing is thinking about past. You know that now you absolutely can’t change anything, so stop thinking about it. Think about present, make plans and you’ll be happier in the New Year.
2. Dump your frenemies
The New Year is a time to dump the negative people in your life. Just think, why you should spend your time and energy on frenemies, when you have so many positive and loving friends. Dump your frenemies, move on and be happier in 2013.
3. Don’t be afraid to change yourself

It doesn’t mean that you should officially meditate, but try to take twenty or thirty minutes every day to clear your mind, without cell phone, TV, friends and kids running around.
6. Be thankful
It doesn’t matter how miserable your life may seem, but you should know that you have something, even if it is small thing, to be thankful for. Try to concentrate on that, and make your thankfulness material. Tell your parents, relatives, spouse, or kids that you love them and show how you appreciate them.
