How to be a Happier Gambler

Happiness looks different for everyone. For you, maybe it’s being at the blackjack table, drink in hand. Or having the financial security to go all in without the slightest hesitation. Or the freedom to pursue your lifelong dream of winning a WSOP Bracelet.

Regardless of your description of true happiness, having a happier, more satisfied gambling life is within reach. A few twists to your regular habits can help you get there.

Habits Matter

Here’s a sample of some daily, monthly, and yearly habits to help get you underway on the road of happiness. Keep in mind that everyone’s version of happiness is a little different, and so is their route to accomplishing it.

If any of these create added stress or just don’t fit your style, ditch them. With a little time and practice, you’ll figure out what does and doesn’t work for you as a gambler


You tend to smile when you’re happy. But it’s actually a two-way street.

We smile because we’re happy, and smiling causes the brain to release dopamine, which makes us happier.

Smile at the dealers. Smile at the cocktail servers. Smile at your fellow gamblers. Heck, even smile at the pit boss.

Exercise isn’t just for your body. Regular exercise can help to reduce stress, feelings of anxiety, and symptoms of depression while boosting self-esteem and happiness.

Even a small quantity of physical activity can make a difference. You don’t have to train for a triathlon or scale a mountain to see a difference.

Sleep well

No matter how much modern society steers us toward less sleep, we know that adequate sleep is vital to good health, brain function, and emotional well-being.

Most adults need about 7 or 8 hours of sleep each night. If you find yourself fighting the urge to nap during the day or just feel like you’re in a fog, your body may be telling you it needs more rest.

It’s especially easy to get caught up in the energy of the casino and neglect yourself on trips. Pay attention to the time and get your rest.


There are many methods of meditation to discover. They can involve movement, focus, spirituality, or a combination of all three.

Meditation doesn’t have to be complicated. It can be as simple as sitting quietly with your own thoughts for 5 minutes. Even the deep breathing exercises mentioned earlier can serve as a form of meditation.

Integrate meditation into your gambling routine and see your winnings increase. You will be well-served to remember that gambling is a form of entertainment. Are you laying your bet for entertainment sake or to pay your light bill?

If it is the latter, I would encourage you to stop and perhaps take a break from gambling.

It is almost impossible to not get caught up in the moment. Especially, when the competitive juices start to flow. Just don’t go chasing bad money with good money.
