The goal in life is not to be happy. It’s to be happy with yourself. We’re all looking for love and contentment, but if you don’t first find peace within yourself, you’ll never be able to give that kind of love away to another person. So how do we find fulfillment and happiness? Here are some tips on how we can improve our sense of well-being:

Be grateful for what you have and who you are

The first step to being happy is to be grateful for what you have. You may think that this sounds like a pretty obvious thing, but it’s actually surprising how many people don’t practice this. They focus all their energy on the things they want, which makes them miserable because they never get those things.

You can find happiness by being grateful for what you already have in your life: family and friends who love you; a job that pays enough money to pay rent and buy food; a healthy body that allows you to do things like run or swim; even just having clean water every day! We often take these things for granted and forget how lucky we are compared with others around us who might not have any of these luxuries at all!

Being happy – Live in the moment

  • Stop thinking about the past, and don’t worry about the future. Focus on what’s happening right now–right here, right now.
  • Be aware of all your senses: sight, sound and smell (and taste if you can manage it). Try to notice how things look and sound; how they feel against your skin or underfoot; whether there are any smells around that bring back memories for you; even which way the wind is blowing at this particular moment in time so that when someone asks “What’s going on?” later on in their life they can say “Oh yeah…it was just like this…” That kind of thing really helps keep things fresh!

Laugh all the time

Laughter is the best medicine. It’s a great way to relieve stress, bond with friends and family and make you feel more confident and positive. So go ahead and laugh all the time!

  • Laughter can help reduce pain by releasing endorphins (natural painkillers). In fact, some hospitals use laughter therapy as part of their treatment programs for people who are in pain or recovering from surgery.
  • Laughter triggers a physical response that increases blood flow throughout your entire body–including your brain–which helps you feel happier than ever before! Plus it sounds like this: hahahahahahahaha!!!!

Don’t judge others

Judging others is a way to feel better about yourself. It’s also a way to avoid taking responsibility for your own life. If you’re not happy with how things are going, instead of actually dealing with your problems and making changes in your life, it’s much easier to put the blame on someone else–or even on everyone else!

But judging others doesn’t make us happy; it just gives us an illusion of happiness when we feel like we’re better than someone else. And it’s not even true happiness at all–it’s just another form of suffering!

Being happy with positive affirmations

Affirmations are positive statements you repeat to yourself over and over again. They can help you stay focused on the goals you want to achieve, and they’re a great way to build up your confidence in achieving them.

For example, if your goal is being happy all of the time, then an affirmation would be something like “I am a person who is always happy.” You might also try writing this on sticky notes or index cards and putting them everywhere around your house so that every time you see one of them it reminds you of what it means for someone like yourself (in other words: YOU!) to be happy all of the time!

Spend time doing something you love

  • Spend time outdoors doing something you love, like hiking, gardening or riding a bike.
  • Find a place to go hiking, gardening or riding a bike. If you have never done these things before, start by finding out where the closest park is in your area. If there isn’t one within walking distance of your home or apartment building, then look for one that’s close enough for you to walk there on weekends (about 1 hour).
  • Get started! It’s easy once you get into the habit of doing it every week–and staying healthy makes us happier people too!

Surround yourself with positive people and eliminate negative people from your life.

It’s important to surround yourself with positive people, and eliminate negative ones from your life. Your happiness is a choice that you make every day, and the more time you spend with people who make you happy, the more likely it is that they will rub off on you.

I know this can be hard when we’re young because we want to hang out with our friends all the time! But try making sure that at least one weekend night every week or two (or even once a month) is spent doing something alone or with someone who makes YOU feel good about yourself–and then don’t let anyone ruin it for you!

It’s important to find happiness within yourself before you can find happiness with someone else!

A lot of people look for happiness in others. They think that if they find the right person, then everything will be perfect and their life will be better. But this is not always true! Happiness is something you can only find within yourself. If you want to be happy with someone else, then first learn how to love yourself fully and completely before trying out any relationships at all!

Just being happy

The art of being happy is something that we all have to learn. It’s not something that comes naturally, but with practice and dedication it can be achieved.
