“Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”  Abraham Lincoln.

Happiness is a good thing that everyone needs in their lives. You may be victorious and have a lot of cash but without happiness it will be empty. The best trail towards happiness is to articulate affection for others. When you communicate the feeling of affection you generate pleasure and enjoyment within yourself.  Happiness is not just a condition of brain but also a shape of passion. It is recommended that working in a significant profession, taking time out for friends, and planning to enjoy the day is the way of increasing happiness in your life.

This happiness is attained due to the appearance of affection for others, either people or behavior. Overall the ones who communicate their affection for are the ones who are healthy to achieve happiness in life. It is easy to neglect our serious role of communicating emotion in generating our happiness.

Happiness is a preference; you can prefer to be gloomy when everything is going fine for you and you can decide to be happy even when nothing is going your way. At time to be happy, make happiness your habit instead of just acting. I consider that the below points will demonstrate you how to be happy at any cost:


Be Grateful

Thankfulness is a sign of appreciation and you have to express gratitude for life. When you wake up in the morning, acknowledge that someone has passed away the previous night but not you, feel lucky to be alive. Let’s do a little exercise, next time you experience as if everything is working not in your favor and there is nothing to be grateful for, take a pen and a paper and write a list of things you should be grateful for, for example, I woke up this morning, food is on my table, I have dress to put on, I have a handsome paying job even though my boss is a beast, sky is beautiful and the ambiance is immense. When you are done with this little exercise, I can guarantee you that you will already feel enhanced.
