Okay so before you roll your eyes to the number of times you might have read the word “happy”, take some time to think about why we take so long to answer the “are you happy” question.

Sometimes the topic of happiness creates certain uneasiness inside of us because there are times in our life that we just don’t get the whole “be happy” thing even when we have everything to be happy for.

So here are some things that I learned about this word.

IT‘S MORE SIMPLE THAN YOU THINK

In psychology, happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being which can be defined by, among others, positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.

With this definition, you might think: okay, but how do I make this emotion stronger and more present in my life? and actually you can by choosing to feel this emotion every day, and now it’s when things get trickier.

1. PRACTICE BEING GRATEFUL

Every time something bad happens in your life or if you’re having a bad day, or you just feel like everything is falling apart, think about something that makes you happy and be grateful for it! And I mean seriously appreciate things like the fact that you are alive and breathing and reading this because some people don’t know how clean air feels like or don’t know how to read. You would be surprised by how often we think and worry about negative things without realizing it and get stuck with them and forget to do it with the positive things as well.
