Surround yourself with true friends, and supportive, caring people.

Stay true to yourself...always. Never settle...ever.

Have faith in yourself, that no matter what life throws your way that you are strong enough to get through it.

Be mindful of what you already have. Find joy in the little things in life. Those little things and being mindful of what you have will get you through some rough times.

Help others. Helping others will remind you that you can help and it gets your mind off of your own troubles. Helping someone out brings happiness.

Exercise. Fresh air changes your scenery and your attitude.

Being happy in life requires equal parts of contentment and Mountain Dew along with a dash of humor and a smidge of not caring what other people think of you. Adding humility as topper can help as well. By the way, welcome to Blurtit!!

Happiness is an attitude of mind, born from the simple determination to be happy in every circumstance, and by inspiring the same attitude in others.

For me, counting my blessings helps.  Also finding opportunities to help others.

By focusing on personal growth .. Even when life challenges you. Being happy is being grateful for life's experiences (even bad ones) because it helps us to learn from our mistakes as well as the mistakes others make. Pick your battles and don't sweat the small stuff. Understand that it's ok to sometimes be angry, frustrated, hurt .. As much as we try to avoid situations that make us feel those negative emotions, they ARE part of life and the lessons life has to offer us. Being happy is a choice. It's never about "things" one has acquired.

Find a career that you enjoy and not just a job that pays the bills. Surround yourself with people who are positive and supportive.  And don't sweat the small stuff. Remember almost everything is small stuff.

Zac...........That's a universal question - What Do we Need to be Happy?

Basically, the requirements for a happy life are few and simple:

1.  Peace and security

2.  Loving family and friends

3.  Good Health

4.  Adequate food, clothing, and shelter

5.  Purpose in life

6.  Hope for the futute

For many people, some or all of these requirements are hard to meet.

Everyone wants to be happy.  But many problems threathen our personal and family happiness.  The current state of human society is in many ways contrary to our natural desire for a peaceful, secure, and happy life.  Each of us is unique.  What makes you happy may not make someone else happy.  Additionally,  we change as we grow older.  Yet, evidence suggests that some things are more consistently associated with happiness.  For example, genuine happiness is linked to finding contentment, avoiding envy, cultivating love for others, and building mental and emotional resilience. 

Finding contenment;  "Money is a protection"  while we may need money to survive, we should avoidgreed, for it is insatiable!

Avoid Envy;  Envy is defined as "the painful or resentful awareness of an advantage enjoyed by another, accompanied by a desire to possess the same advantage".  Like a malignant growth, envy can take over one's life and destroy happiness.  How might envy take root?

Culiviate Love for People;  People's feeling about their relationships have a bigger impact on their overall satisfaction with their lives than do their job, income, community, or even physical health.  Simply put, in order to be truly happy, humans need to give and receive Love.
