Are you truly happy? Do you ever know what it means to be happy and what it takes to achieve happiness? __16__ The following are a few tips that I follow to create happiness in my life.
Make a plan for achieving goals that you believe will make you happy. Your moods will very likely increase if you are going after something you value.
Surround yourself with happy people. It is easy to begin to think negatively(消极地) when you are surrounded by people who think that way. __17__
When something goes wrong, try to figure out a solution instead of being absorbed in self pity. Truly happy people don’t allow setbacks(挫折) to affect their mood because they know that with a little thought they can turn the things back to their favor.
__18__ These few minutes will give you the opportunity to focus on the positive things in your life and will lead you to continuous happiness.
__19__ Whether you treat yourself to lunch, take a long, relaxing bath or simply spend a few extra minutes on your appearance, you will be subconsciously(下意识地) putting yourself in a better mood.
