What do you say about yourself? Are you a happy person? If your reply is in negative then you need to think over it. All your education, intelligence, money, status and success is meaningless if you are not living a happy life. What is the reason of living if a person is not happy with his life?
Are you living your life in just a boring routine manner or living a full exciting, happy, lively and loving life, the way it should be lived. You can make your life more lively and lovely by making small changes in your routine life. It will cost you nothing but give you joy and happiness beyond imagination.
Don’t be too serious about life. Make it a point to smile, laugh and enjoy every moment of your life. Whatever your circumstances, you can live a happy and lively life if you concentrate more on the positive side of life and less on the negative side.
The definition of happiness is very confusing. The concept of happiness differs from person to person. If you are satisfied with your life then you are a happy person. A satisfied person is a happy person. If you are not satisfied with your life then you will remain an unhappy person. I am giving below some tips that make a person happy and satisfied.
1. Satisfaction at job

Before going to bed, do not watch TV, movies or listen to music. Most people do this mistake and, therefore, remain unsuccessful and unhappy. You may not agree with me but this is a fact. After a hectic day’s work our mind and body need rest in complete silence. Before going to bed you need to switch off all kind of external noise and calm down internally.
Think, how can you make your today, a wonderful day of your life. I give you some suggestions:
1. Go for a morning walk.
2. Take a good nutritious breakfast.
3. Smile a lot and say hello to as many persons as possible.
4. Say thank you to God for all His blessings and to the people who are helpful to you in one way or other.
5. Enjoy your work and try to do it in a more efficient way.
6. Do some creative work.
7. Make a telephone call to a friend or a family member whom you have not seen for quite a long time.
Life isn't the sweetest candy. Sometimes, when I feel like the world is just too heavy, I look around and find people who continue to live fascinating and wonderful lives. And then thoughts come popping into my mind like bubbles from nowhere - "How did their life become so adorably sweet? How come they still can manage to laugh and play around despite a busy stressful life?" Then I pause and observe for awhile. I figured out that maybe, they start to work on a place called 'self'.
So, how does one become genuinely happy? Step 1 is to love yourself.
Are the daily pressures and stressors that you face each day present obstacles that cause you feelings of anxiety and hopelessness?
Do you ever look at other people who seem to have the juggling act down pat? Did you ever wonder how these people are able to handle the curve balls that Life hurls their way with the ease, grace and optimism that they display? Maybe you have a friend or family member who has the remarkable ability to see the best sides of life and this frustrates you because you are unable to understand just from where their eternal sunshine originates.
Where does happiness fit on a scale of 1 to 10 in your life?
Is that a silly question? Who's in control of your happiness??
Well, if you want to maintain continued happiness in light of difficult moments then start by identifying your thinking. Often this means that some of the way you think about certain things may need to change.
Change is difficult for many people, especially when it involves changing a behavior that you have practiced over and over again (such as drinking, smoking, overeating, etc.) And with the change often comes strong emotion.
I understand that two women were studying a painting titled “The Road to Happiness.” The scene was warm and compelling. “Isn’t that beautiful?” one of the women said to her friend.
But the other looked despondent. "Of course it's beautiful. The only problem is … there is no such road."
Many years ago, Dr. A. J. Cronin occasionally prescribed an unusual treatment for some of his patients who were feeling “blue,” “down,” orgenerally blah. He would insist that for six weeks the patient say, “Thank you” for every kindness and keep a record of it. According to Dr. Cronin, he had a remarkable cure rate.
If you find yourself depressed, please consult your medical doctor. Buteveryone gets down at times, and sharpening your sense of gratitude can
