What Is Happiness Really All About?

Everyone seems to be seeking happiness, but most not able to explain what it is in clear and understandable terms. How would you explain happiness to a child?

The dictionaries seems too obscure with its references to; a state of feeling great pleasure, favoured by circumstances, being lucky or fortunate, feelings of contentment, satisfaction, pleasure, or joy.

On the other hand, philosophers and religious thinkers have often defined happiness in terms of living a good life, accompanied by words like pleasure, gratification, enjoyment and feeling good.

At the end of the day, happiness is not just simply a way of living, but living a life of purpose and joy. Happiness is the ability to enjoy life unconditionally, along with the ups and downs of life. Seeing the beauty and joy in things is what makes for a happy life. Happiness is as much a choice as it is a skill. We are all born happy, but somewhere along the way we forget what happiness feels and looks like and start relating happiness to unrelated events.

It is possible to be happy most of the time and you can actually start doing it today.

The most simplest way to become happier is to find something or someone to appreciate at this very moment. It could be the beautiful day, uninterrupted time in your favourite spot in the garden, a beautiful smile by your child or even a stranger. What about a great and refreshing cup of tea, soft music or even the smell from your kitchen.

In the rare circumstance that you are struggling to find anything to appreciate, then simply appreciate the fact that you are breathing and pay attention to that breath. I can almost guarantee that you will feel better right away.

Would you like your child to be happy most of the time? Then forget all those intellectual books that are full of jargon and theory. Instead, go to
