Happiness, despite popular belief, is not simply a state of being.
It is also an act, a way of life, a perspective. Take a moment to reflect upon the lives of the happier people that you are blessed enough to have in your life.

1. Express gratitude.
When you appreciate what you have, what you have appreciates in value. Kinda cool right? So basically, being grateful for the goodness that is already evident in your life will bring you a deeper sense of happiness. And that’s without having to go out and buy anything. It makes sense. We’re gonna have a hard time ever being happy if we aren’t thankful for what we already have.
