Happiness has little to do with comfort or possessions. It also doesn’t mean feeling good all the time. Happiness is a combination of how satisfied you are with your life and how good you feel on a day-to-day basis. Some people are lucky enough to be born as happy as they are born and brought up in a positive and supportive environment. But if you are not among them then no need to worry as you can be happy if you choose to be. There are five ways to live happily.

How to be happy? 5 Simplest ways to be Happy Always
Change your perspective to be happy
“The only thing you sometimes have control over is perspective. You don’t have control over your situation. But you have a choice about how you view it.” -Chris Pine
Life changes when you change your perspective towards life. But chasing happiness won’t make you happy.
Be optimistic to be happy
“Through my optimism, I naturally prefer and capture the beauty in life.” -Leni Riefenstahl
Make it a habit to actively seek out the positive in any experience. Be optimistic. You are born to live the life of your dreams and you’ll get what you want to get.
Show gratitude to be happy
“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.” -Denis Waitley
Good things happen to those who are thankful for whatever they have. So show gratitude to God and to people.
Determine your core values to be happy
Research suggests that when you aren’t living your life in line with your values, you’re likely to feel unhappy and dissatisfied. So take a little time and reflect on what is most important and meaningful in your life, think about the times when you felt happiest or most satisfied.
Live in present to be happy
“The present changes the past. Looking back you do not find what you left behind.” -Kiran Desai
If you are holding your issues from past you won’t feel happy. Trauma from the past or even just painful circumstances can cause mild to severe depression. And if consistently you are thinking about your future you’ll feel anxious. To escape anxiety and depression start living in present. This is your life and it’s you who can make it either wonderful or worse. Follow your heart and be happy.
P.S: Come out of your comfort zone and face your fears.
