Happiness is a feeling, a set of positive emotions, a state of mind characterized by satisfaction, contentment, joy, and fulfilment. It lies within books for some people; others find joy in food, while others perceive true happiness in their family. For the most part, the materialistic approach to seek happiness gives temporary pleasure. Everyone must be happy in their heart and not influenced by outside circumstances. It is for this reason; we brought quotes on happiness for you to joyfully celebrate the International Day of Happiness. We can acknowledge the true meaning of happiness in our everyday life from now on.
The Pursuit of Happiness Is in Our Souls
The one thing that all of us do is expect happiness from things and people around us. Every being on this land wants to live the imaginary dream life they always thought of and always thought this could bring them happiness. But think of the time you were a kid, had nothing in hand, yet still the happiest beings alive. This is because happiness is in our core and the depth of our souls, but as we grow up, we shift that to materialistic objects. Creativity and a strong sense of resilience are what makes our soul blossom.
What Makes People Happy?
Not only positive thinking but positive actions are a necessity of perceiving happiness. Happy people tend to have that peace of mind. A research study done by two psychologists of Harvard University, Matthew A. Killingsworth and Daniel T. Gilbert, showed that 46.9 per cent of all the working hours of people are spent thinking about something other than the actual task at hand. And according to them, “A human mind is a wandering mind, and a wandering mind is an unhappy mind.” Thus, the performance of our mind reflects from our actions and thus builds positive outcomes. Other traits might be being an optimist, having a strong emotional understanding of the world, admirable humor, and showing gratitude towards the smallest things.
