What is happiness and how can we obtain it?
Happiness can be defined as a state of mind characterized by feeling of contentment, satisfaction, and pleasure.

Happiness is matter of choice happiness.
Abraham Lincoln said “you are as happy as you make up your mind to be” So, Happiness is a matter of choice. We can make a choice to be either happy or sad. Being satisfied with who we are and what we have can make us happy. We should first set our goals and determine the areas in our lives that are important to us. Then we should strive to attain these goals. We should make conscious attempt to change what we can and accept what we cannot.
Positive thinking brings all good things
Being optimistic can aid increasing our happiness. Always think that life is going to get better. It helps to have a positive outlook. Dwelling in the past and ruminating about something that went wrong can lead to depression. At the same time we should never try to compare ourselves with others. It will only lead to unhappiness. Instead, we should count our blessings and be thankful for all the good things we have; good health, family, friends and education.
