"Happiness is that feeling that comes over you when you know life is good and you can't help but smile. Happiness is a sense of well-being, joy or contentment"
What makes us happy? How can we live a life of happiness? Is it possible to be happy every day for the rest of our lives? Happiness is a mental and emotional state and like everything else we want to achieve we need to introduce consistency and perseverance. Don't get me wrong here?.......We can be happy with daily events or life occurrences. But to be truly happy and healthy it will take some effort.
Whilst I am writing this, there is a big event about to happen today. The outcome of this 'big event' could make a lot of people extremely happy or extremely saddened. In fact, I am a bit oblivious to all of this myself, but many of my family, friends and colleagues will be drinking a beer or two and no doubt wallow in pure, unadulterated euphoria if all goes well or perhaps feel the opposite if the outcome is different. Yes, it is of course, the England vs Italy Euro Final. I will be happy for all those who love football and I will probably smile if I see and feel the happiness surrounding me. But this will not actually make me happy? Happiness is a very individual emotion. We seek our own happiness for our own well-being and not that of others. Be happy for your friends and family but find your happy life and work towards your own path of health and well-being.
