Have at least 4,10 is better, great and close friends that you make time for and vice versa.
Research shows that having at least 4 close friendships makes you happier, healthier, have higher well-being, and be more engaged in your job. It also appears "the more the merrier" really does apply. Adults who say they have 10 good friends are happier than those who could count five or less close friends. Essentially, you should be focusing on supportive quality relationships as opposed to quantity, meaning surround yourself with real and authentic people that truly mean something to you. Lastly, social support is one of the greatest predictors of happiness.

Figure out what you like, love, and care about, and then find ways to do more of it.
It sounds so simple in concept, but how many of us actually do this or become aware of such? One simple way is to schedule the things you like, love, and care about into your calendar, literally. This is especially great if your schedule always appears to be full. For one thing, it makes you more accountable to doing them, and secondly, it's hard much harder to schedule the unnecessary and needless stuff if it's filled up with the good stuff that truly helps you, is good for you, and makes you happy.
