Key Ideas

Sleep And Exercise

While it is well known that sleep and exercise are important, it is equally important to take it easy and not give yourself a hard time.

Certain things in life, nature, birds, cats and dogs, are naturally infused with happiness. Even an object like a bicycle is happiness. Find your inner happiness by focusing on what makes you happy.

Ways To Be Happy

  • Writing is therapy, and listing out what we are grateful for, on a daily basis amplifies our happiness about the good things in our lives.
  • Eating healthy and unprocessed food, like fruits and vegetables makes our body and mind happy.
  • Nature is pure delight, and even being next to a tree can provide a silent kind of happiness.

Scientists do not fully understand misophonia but suspect it's caused by the way some people's brains process particular sounds and react to them.

Some studies found that the brains of people with misophonia showed hyperactivation of the salience network, a group of brain areas that direct our attention to important things in our surroundings. Trigger sounds send the salience network into an overdrive. Researchers found these brain areas are structurally more robust in people with misophonia.
