Happiness, aspired to by 80% of people worldwide, is not just a dream but a realizable reality. Psychologist Sonja Lyubomirsky defines happiness as the result of our perspective and reactions to life’s circumstances (Seligman, 2011).

Research on happiness reveals common traits among happy individuals: they focus on the present moment, practice gratitude, build strong relationships, and engage in enjoyable activities with a positive mindset (Baumeister & Leary, 1995).

Personal experiences confirm these findings. During challenging times, focusing on the present and expressing gratitude helped me cope. As Maya Angelou said, "People will never forget how you made them feel."

To live happier, focus on the present moment and practice daily gratitude. Cultivate strong relationships, engage in enjoyable activities, and maintain a positive mindset. Aristotle emphasized, "Happiness depends upon ourselves."
