Happiness that some people have been looking for all their lives and some people cannot even find the opportunity to seek in the rush of life. So what is this happiness? For happiness; There are definitions such as reaching all wishes and aspirations of a person completely or the joy felt when reaching the desired phenomenon. In fact, many definitions of happiness can be made. Because everyone's happiness, or rather the concept of happiness, is different. For this reason, it is very normal to get different answers to the question of what is happiness. For example, science; He can summarize happiness with a hormone called serotonin. In other words, an action that is good for you triggers the secretion of serotonin and you are happy.

 

The Secret of Happiness; Success and Money?

Are we happy when we are successful? Yes. What about when you make money? Yes. Are successful and wealthy people then the happiest people in the world? No. Then we can say that working hard and making money does not lead to permanent happiness. So you will understand; The philosophy of work hard, be successful, earn money and be happy is not true. Correct order; be happy so you can work more efficiently, be successful and earn money. Studies have proven that positive thinking increases the energy and endurance of the mind, which increases the efficiency of work.

Since many institutions and schools have adopted the formula of "if I am successful, I will be happy", we have adopted this as a society. With every success we achieve, we have taught our minds to be unhappy together, which decides that achieving the next success is necessary for happiness. We postponed happiness and tied it to the results of many things. Then we complained of unhappiness. Happiness and unhappiness are learnable concepts. And they are closely related to whether the thought is positive or negative. For this reason, we must break the chain of happiness that society and life conditions teach us. And we shouldn't wait for something to happen in order to be happy.

Some sources divide happiness into two; on a short-term and long-term basis. I think it's a fair point. I'm talking about situations that develop on their own and make us smile, you know, events that make the world beautiful for a second on social media. Here they are short-term happiness.

There is also a long-term one. The number of people who reach it is thought to be very few in the world. Because this is directly proportional to self-actualization. Unfortunately, studies show that the number of self-actualized individuals is also low. But these results should not lead us to unhappiness. Everyone's life can be very different because of the steps leading to happiness. Let's take a look at the joint actions we can take to achieve our own happiness.

Denmark, which is the happiest country in the world almost every year, has the Happiness Research Institute. The Danes have a philosophy they call the philosophy of happiness. The name of the philosophy: "HYGGE". So; what is happiness, the answer to the question is HYGGE in Denmark. “The art of creating intimate environments.”, “Feeling warm in the soul.”, “The state of being away from all trouble, distress and frustrating.”, “Enjoying things that relax and bring happiness.” It is said to mean something like. In fact, these are the things you know. Being happy with the little things, knowing how to be content, spending time with loved ones... We are the only difference from the Danes. This is because we can't make a habit of what we know. Then we can start by caring about these simple rules that we actually know.

In order to be happy, you must first accept yourself as you are in order to remove the obstacles to happiness. This includes your life. For some, it can be quite difficult to reconcile with their past. If necessary, you should seek professional help and manage to get out of the depressive mood that drives happiness away from you. It doesn't matter where you come from, it matters who you choose to be. You shouldn't take the past too seriously, and you shouldn't be deceived by the future. In fact, the most real moment you have; now.

You should focus on personal development and first of all, you should do the self-knowledge step by facing yourself honestly. Who are you really and what kind of person are you? You should boldly ask yourself questions such as how they see you from the outside. Personal development books and personal development movies can help you in this regard.

You should look at life on the bright side. Of course, this is a very familiar and clichéd suggestion, perhaps. But I think it is one of the most important points. The goal here is to see the whole picture, but also to recognize the bad, but choose to focus on the good. Even if we can't do this for every event, adapting it to most situations will keep you from worrying about trivia.

You should prioritize your personal care. Stay away from social media trends that are suffocating you as if you have to be the most beautiful or handsome in the world to be happy. Pay attention to your appearance first for yourself, not for others. Do this regularly and without losing the naturalness. After days, you will notice that you feel happier.

Scientific research says that happiness is a choice. Man probably prefers to think about negative things because of the instinct of self-preservation. In this way, he tries to take precautions against dangers. This brings unhappiness. Focus on positive thoughts, choose to be happy. Focusing on positive thinking can help you turn happiness into a habit.
