You might not give it much conscious thought as you go about your daily life but the issue of happiness is with you always. Everything you do, every action you take, every decision you make, will impact your happiness either positively or negatively even though you don't think it at the time. Dennis Prager has some interesting thoughts on happiness in his book "Happiness is a Serious Problem" I'd like to share with you.
1. You Have Full Control over the Mood You Project
A quote from the book is, “There is little correlation between the circumstances of people's lives and how happy they are.” There are plenty of anecdotes to back up this claim, but let’s approach it with your own example. Have you ever been having an argument with a partner, and then somebody phones or turns up at your house and you suddenly act all nice and sweet as if everything is okay? We have all done it before at some point, and we do it because it would be rude and embarrassing if we dragged our personal problems out in public for others to see. At those moments, you are able to change your mood and your attitude without any problems. You may not feel the way you are acting, but the fact is you have complete control over it.
