There are two types of people in the world: those who choose to be happy and those who choose to be unhappy. Contrary to popular belief, happiness does not come from fame, fortune, other people, or material possessions. Rather, it comes from within.
The richest person in the world could be miserable while a homeless person could be right outside, smiling and content with his life. Happy people are happy because they make themselves happy, They maintain a positive outlook on life and remain at peace with themselves. Happy people have good habits that enhance their lives. They do things differently.

"Don't Hold Grudges"
Holding a grudge has a lot of detrimental effects on your wellbeing, including increased depression, anxiety, and stress. why let anyone who has wronged you have power over you ? If you let go all your grudges, you'll gain a clear conscience and enough energy to enjoy the good things in life
"Treat everyone with kindness"
It has been scientifically proven that being kind actually makes you happier. Everytime you performs a selfless act, your brain produces serotonin, a hormone that eases tension and lifts your spirits. Treating people with love, dignity, and respect allows you to build stronger relationships
"See problems as challenges"
The word "problem" is never part of a happy persons vocabulary. A problem is viewed as a drawback, a struggle, or an unstable situation while a challenge is viewed as something positive like an opportunity, a task, or a dare. Whenever you face an obstacle, try looking at it as a challenge
"Express gratitude for what they already have"
"The happiest people don't have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have." you will have a deeper sense of contentment if you count your blessings instead of yearning for what you don't have.
People who get into the habot of dreaming big are more likely to accomplish their goals than those who don't/ If you dare to dream big, your mind will put itself in a focussed and positive state.
"Speak well of others"
Begin nice feels better than being mean. As fun as gossiping is, it usually leaves you feeling guilty and resentful. Saying nice things about other people encourages you to think positive, non-judgmental thoughts.
"Never make excuses"
Happy people don't make excuses or blame others for their own failures in life. Instead, they own up to their mistakes and, by doing so, they proactively try to change for the better
"Live in the present"
Happy people don't dwell on the past or worry about the future. They savor the present.
"Avoid social comparison"
everyone works at his own pace, so why compare yourself to others? If you think you're better than someone else, you gain an unhealthy sense of superiority. If you think someone else is better than you, you end up feeling bad about yourself. You'll be happier if you focus on your own progress and praise others in theirs
"Choose friends wisely"
Misery loves company. that's why it's important to surround yourself with optimistic people who will encourage you to achieve your goals. The more positive energy you have around you, the better you will feel about yourself.
"Never seek approval from others"
Happy people don't care what others think of them. They follow their own hearts. they understand that it's impossible to please everyone. Listen to what people have to say, but never seek anyone's approval but your own.
"Nurture social relationships"
A lonely person is a miserable person. Happy people understand how important it is to have strong, healthy relationships. Always take the time to see and talk to your family, friends or significant other
Junk food makes you sluggish, and its difficult to be happy when you're in that kind of state. Everything you eat directly affects your body's ability to produce hormones, which will dictate your moods, energy, ad mental focus. Be sure to eat foods that will keep your mind and body in good shape
"Accept what cannot be changed"
Once you accept the fact that life is not fair, you'll be more at peace with yourself. instead of obsessing over how unfair life is, just focus of what you can control and change it for the better
