Embracing the Happiness Movement
The happiness movement has exploded, and it’s not hard to see why. All around us, people are doing what they can to be happy, healthy, and positive—and there’s no limit to how far it can spread if we continue to teach others how to be happy and positive as well.
What does happiness mean?
What is happiness? This is a tough question to answer, as each person will have a different definition of what it means. Some people view happiness as getting what they want. Others see it as enjoying their experiences without feeling guilty. There are as many definitions of happiness as there are humans on earth. In fact, some folks believe that true happiness can’t be defined at all—but rather experienced through positive emotions and actions.
Why can’t we always be happy?
In a world filled with negativity, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and stressed out. But we shouldn’t be worried or anxious about our lives. We should focus on being happy and not worrying about trivial matters that won’t matter in a year from now. Our lives are too short to waste time on negativity—it’s time to embrace gratitude, positivity, and compassion for ourselves and others around us.
What prevents us from being happy?
There are a number of things that prevent us from being happy—stress, money problems, loneliness, and more. But one of the biggest problems is our thinking about happiness itself. Our culture values being happy as much as anything else—we pursue happiness with a vengeance because we think it’s something to be obtained. In reality, though, happiness isn’t an end goal at all; it’s a byproduct of certain actions and circumstances that bring joy into our lives.
Is there anything we can do about it?
Positivity is a word that gets thrown around a lot these days, but it’s not always clear what it means. In our modern society, negativity is king—the 24-hour news cycle, social media outrage, and other influences create an environment where we focus on what’s wrong in order to feel better about ourselves. But research shows there are real benefits to embracing positivity.
