  • What is the meaning of "happiness"? 

Happiness is that feeling that comes over you when you know life is good and you can't help but smile. It's the opposite of sadness, a sense of well-being, joy, and contentment. 

Happiness - Definition, Meaning & Synonyms |

Life can be like a roller coaster at times - ups and downs. However, there are many ways to bring more happiness into your life: 

  1. Be around people who make you smile and feel happy. Studies show that we are happiest when we are around those who are also happy. Happiness can be contagious, let it rub off on you! 
  2. Accept the good. Life is not always perfect, but a positive outlook can make a huge difference. Remember not to obsess over things you can't control. 
  3. Do what you love. Greater happiness is achieved when do things that you love, such as certain hobbies and also things on your bucket list. 
  4. Listen to your heart and choose your battles wisely. You are the only person that knows what makes you tick and what fills you up. Life is too short to spend it on things or people that are not important. 
  5. Keep pushing. Like Ye once mentioned, "they say your attitude determines your latitude." You're ultimately in charge and have the power to get where you want to go. 
  6. Be open minded to change. Not all change is feels good starting out. Change happens a lot in life, whether it's a change in decisions, opportunities, situations, circumstances, etc. Staying open to change and new ideas can help you become a stronger, and more vibrant individual. 
  7. Stay away from negative people. You cannot expect to live a positive live if you hang with negative and/or toxic people. Naysayers can damage your credibility. They can also ruin a good mood.
  8. Additional ways to create happiness:
  • Get enough sleep 
  • Exercising and playing sports 
  • Take deep breaths 
  • Be more optimistic 
  • Practice gratitude 
  • Find your purpose
  • Do what makes you happy 

* Keep in mind that happiness is not permanent, nor does it remain the same forever. It has its ups and downs. Charles Swindoll said it best: "Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% how you react to it."
