Happiness is a state of mind and it is not possible for anyone to be happy all the time.However, a person should strive to achieve some amount of happiness.



Like they say being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means that you have decided to look beyond the imperfections in life ! It is not easy to live a happy and contented life. Happiness is a state of mind and it is not possible for anyone to be happy all the time.However, a person should strive to achieve some amount of happiness.
Here is a list of a few essentials which I feel are needed for a reasonably happy and contented life !

1. First and foremost is GOOD HEALTH. If you do not enjoy good health you can never be happy. Any ailment, however trivial, will deduct from your happiness. So one has to take good care of one's health by being regular in all aspects of health care.

2. Second important factor is A HEALTHY BANK BALANCE. It need not run into crores but one should have enough to provide for creature comforts and something to spare for comfort and recreation, like eating out, going to the pictures, traveling or going on holidays on the hills or by the sea or wherever. Shortage of money can be demoralizing and can be a major cause for worry and unhappiness. Living on credit or borrowing is demeaning and lowers one in one's own eyes.

3. Third requirement is to have A HOME OF YOUR OWN. Rented premises can never give you that snug feeling , which is yours for keeps that a home provides. If it has a garden space, all the better. Plant your own trees and flowers, see them grow and blossom, cultivate a sense of kinship with them. No other happiness comes close to that of being close to nature and making a positive contribution to the environment.

4. Fourth, AN UNDERSTANDING COMPANION, be it your spouse , relative or a friend. If there are too many misunderstandings, they will rob you of your peace of mind.So, it is imperative that you have a good rapport with your companion to be happy and contented !

5. Fifth, LACK OF ENVY towards those who are better looking , have done better than you in life, risen higher, made more money, or earned more fame. Envy which can become a more stronger emotion like Jealousy can be a very negative emotion and consume a person leading him/her to self destruction. So, avoid comparing yourself with others and learn to accept yourself.

6. Sixth important clue is to CULTIVATE SOME HOBBIES which can bring you a sense of fulfillment, such as gardening, reading, writing, painting, playing or listening to music or traveling when you find the time and opportunity. Going to clubs or endless parties to socialize is a criminal waste of time. When we put our time into proper use we realize the value of it.

7, Last but not the least, every morning and evening, devote 15- 20 minutes to INTROSPECTION. In the morning, at least 10- 15 minutes should be spent on stilling the mind and then five minutes in listing out the things you have to do for that day. In the evening, five minutes to still the mind again, and then to go over what you had undertaken to do.Be frank and fair in your analysis of your self so that you can correct yourself or better yourself as the case may be !

Like some wise man said - Richness is not Earning More, Spending More Or Saving More, but Richness is when you need no more ...

Money, that would be my addition to this article. It may not be on the top but surely it would help a lot in achieving happiness in life. It may sound materialistic, but if used in the positive way, it really is one of the key factor to happiness this days. The saying "Money can buy anything, but not happiness" is I think not entirely true. Money can buy happiness, whether temporary or long term. Money can surely help us to be happy. When we have money and use it wisely, we may be able to achieve a better living. We may able to achieve a good health,a good mood and the best service we can have.
