So, what is the exact definition of happiness??

We often associate happiness with people, success, money, the food we eat, or the stuff we buy. We often find an idol or check our favourite lifestyle bloggers to find the advice to stay motivated and focused. But, in reality, happiness doesn’t come with things, money, or some persons around you. Most of the time we feel alone and empty inside and disappear in the delusions of seclusion despite being around humans, things, money, and stuff. So, what is the exact definition of happiness??

Basically, happiness comes from inside a person, and it has nothing to do with whatever comes around. Though things coming on the way may affect the level of happiness positively or negatively for a little while, but in the long run, your happiness is dependent upon you.

1. Stop Thinking Deep for What Has Gone and Hasn’t Come Around Yet

Yes, if you live in the past, you cannot be happy. Besides, if you will think of the things may happen in future, it will also keep nagging your nerves with deleteriousness. Stop doing that immediately. You will have to alter the way of your thinking, stop doing things that waste your time and life and beseech happiness from every moment you are living in.

2. Alter the Ways of Thinking By Practice

To do so, simply sit for a while and do nothing yet think for all the good things you had with you during the recent past. You must not live in past, but always appreciate the good things and good moments you had. You may have a hard time at the start while thinking about good things, and they may hurt you too. However, with continuous practice, you will surely learn to implore happiness to form small chunks of time.

3. Be Your Biggest Fan and Treat Yourself Like a Celebrity

Nobody in this world is going to do anything for you as much as you can do for yourself, especially when it comes to happiness. Therefore, instead of waiting for others, you need to appreciate yourself, and treat yourself like you want others to treat you, never let yourself down in front of others in a way that they would build you up. Always dress up good, look elegant, and be your own fan, yet a celebrity for others at the same time.

4. Keep Your Attitude Towards Others Positive

For happiness, you will have to be grateful for the smallest things you have in your life. Don’t ever shut people out to behave like a celebrity. A celebrity is someone not only good with wearing but also good at attitude. You will have to be nice with others and appreciate them for their little deeds in order to be really happy from inside.

5. Surround Yourself with Positive Energies

Lastly, you need to have positive energies around you. Remember, people aren’t the only entity to bring you positive energy. It can be your favourite food, a concert, or anything that make you filled with positivity. By doing so, you will see that you will always be surrounded by happiness.

If you haven’t smiled from a long time and don’t find anything worth-happiness, you might need to improve your work-life balance and try my aforementioned top best, yet simple, five ways to be happy.
