For all my lessons learned, the Model, the Method, and so on, if we want to improve our lives, little works more effectively than
- Eat well
- Sleep well
If you do nothing more than the above, you’ll at least have a stable baseline of neutral. Last I checked, no medicine works better than exercise at keeping yourself happy. This advice costs nothing, takes little extra time, and requires no equipment.
If you can’t figure out how to work the above into your schedule, examine your priorities — I suggest doing so until you see how to incorporate those three things into your life.
When you do fit them into your schedule, you will find yourself generally at worst neutral to generally happy, with the ability to improve your mood more if you set yourself to it.
