I had received comments from readers that they prefer to have a list that teaches them how to be happy instead of being miserable. So I created this article that contains tips to teach you how to be happy.
I believe that happiness is what we are ultimately seeking for in life. We want to be rich because it makes us happy and we want to get a new car because it will make us happy. I believe almost every choice we make in life is tend towards to the amount of happiness that it can provide to us at that moment.
Happiness is what we are seeking for in life and here are some ways you can use to make yourself happy.
