There has been much talk recently in the UK about “happiness”. What does constitute happiness? What makes people happy? Can we make happiness a UK characteristic?
I have no definitive answers myself, but the discussions that I have heard recently have included some of the following are required to be happy.
- Strong relationships
- Good health
- Being Active
There has even been the launch of “Action for Happiness” here in the UK.
Notice, that I have not included money in this list. Doing the research, no-one can quite decide about it’s contribution.
For me, happiness is an attitude of mind. Therefore, it is essential that I know how to deal with my thoughts. Recognising when negativity slips in and then, consciously, seeking to change that though to a positive by choosing to see the good in a situation. And there are many “good” things to see in any circumstance. I’ve just got to open your eyes. However, I know it is not that simple, nor as black and white as I have made it out to be.
So, happiness then. What do you make of it?
What do you believe contributes to happiness?
