Interested in what other people think is a no-brainer way to happiness? On February 27th, the official No-Brainer Day, people were making the hashtag NoBrainerWayToHappinessIs a trend. Following are some of the top tweets and why they are so true!
1. Get Rid Of Facebook
#NoBrainerWayToHappinessIs deactivating Facebook

Facebook is fakebook. Everyone on there is trying their best to look great in your eyes, and, meanwhile, you are comparing yourself to their perfect life. That detracts from your happiness in a big way!
Moreover, being ignored, being unfriended, or being left out are all things that can happen on Facebook, and are also things that will make you feel unhappy.
Lastly, stalking your ex-boyfriend, ex-girlfriend, or ex-friend in general will almost always make you unhappy as you see them having fun without you.
Get rid of Facebook – it’s a no-brainer way to happiness!
2. Get A Pet
#NoBrainerWayToHappinessIs Get a pet. They’ll make you smile more than humans will.

Pets love you no matter what, and if you end up with a jerk (hey, I know some jerk cats and dogs), they still enrich your life in ways that a human could never do.
Animals support your physical and mental health in a positive way. For instance, dog owners live longer, according to this article.
3. Do Not Overthink Everything & Live Life In Simplicity
#NoBrainerWayToHappinessIs to not overthink everything & live life in simplicity.

If you have ever overthought something, you know that letting go of overthinking is an absolute no-brainier way to experience more happiness. Overthinking causes you to worry about the future and hold onto the past too tightly.
Happiness lives in the moment, not in the future or in the past.
Stop overthinking and start living.
4. Be Yourself
Be unapologetically you! #NoBrainerWayToHappinessIs
— .:Natalia:. (@BellaMoonP) February 27, 2018
The quickest way to hate your life and feel unhappy is to not live it authentically.
When you allow yourself to embrace your uniqueness, you can do what you were put here to do. You can:
- Help others love themselves more
- Promote positive change
- Enjoy what you do
So, acknowledge who you are and be unapologetically you!
5. Get Rid Of Toxic People
— K. Alice 🍑 (@KAliceCompeau) February 27, 2018
Sometimes you just need to let go of people from your life. Whether you are breaking up with a friend, distancing yourself from a family remember, or letting a toxic lover go, you will feel so much happier once it’s all said and done.
And, you don’t have to completely cut them out of your life. You can distance yourself from them. For example, a friend of mine had a toxic mother who was ruining his self-esteem. Nothing he did was good enough. She wouldn’t listen to his concerns about her harsh behavior. He hated going to see her because it would drag him down for at least the day. Eventually he stopped going over so much hoping she might change. She didn’t, but he felt much better only seeing her occasionally rather than all the time.
Your happiness is more important than maintaining a relationship because you feel obligated to.
6. Forgive And Forget
#NoBrainerWayToHappinessIs forgive and forget
— Jimish (@jimishbathia) February 27, 2018
One of the best things that I do in my romantic relationship is forgive and forget quickly. It keeps old grudges out of the way and allows us to stay present in our relationship.
It works the same in any relationship. Forgiving allows you to move on from things that keep you stuck in a lower energy (hate, sadness, worry), all of which makes you unhappy. There are many more benefits of forgiving, and they all lead to more happiness.
7. Enjoying Life And Ignoring The Haters
— Billie🍑♥️♊ (@Billie_Jean00) February 27, 2018
People are always going to hate you. It doesn’t matter how great you are or what kind of intentions you have, people will find a reason not to like you if you make them feel bad, sad, angry, or jealous. That’s just the way it is.
When you can ignore the haters and just enjoy your life, you become much happier! If you are doing well, and you know it, you will feel good.
8. Ice Cream

I am vegan, but I like vegan ice cream!
There are certain treats that we’ve gotten since we were young, and they always make us happy. But it goes beyond just a familiar treat that makes us feel comforted and good. According to this article, some foods are made out of compounds that have an effect on your mood – hence the happiness you feel.
Therapy. Lots of therapy. #NoBrainerWayToHappinessIs
— Robyn your 💜 (@robyndwoskin) February 27, 2018
Sometimes it’s hard to sort through things in your head, and that’s where a therapist comes in. They can help you see things from a different angle and introduce life techniques that can help you be happier.
And sometimes it just feels good to have someone to talk to about anything you want to talk about. Releasing all those concerns, fears, and everything else can be a freeing experience and make you feel lighter and happier.
10. Stop Hating
#NoBrainerWayToHappinessIs Stop Hating.
Bile only harms the vessel it’s stored in.
— Philip Schuyler (@FiveRights) February 27, 2018
Could you imagine how happy we would all be if we all stopped hating each other? Everyone would be accepting. People would be allowed to be themselves. We would respect each other’s differences and learn from each other. It would be a happy world, for sure.
But, more personally, hatred and emotions like it can lead to mental and physical problems and affect your happiness in a big way. So, be selfish and stop hating other people for your own health. Practice love, acceptance, and tolerance.
