    On your Search for Happiness...

    When on your search for happiness, make an effort to realise that happiness is internal. No places, people or events can make you happy. It is for you to seek happiness in these outwardly things. Doesn’t ring a bell? Here is an example, there could be this one thing that you love very much today, but after a few days you may just not want to see it again. At one point in time that thing that made you happy does not even bring a smile to your face anymore. Hence proved, happiness is within you; it is within all of us.

    Smile and Laugh a Lot

    Even if you do not feel that something is funny or so witty as to be laughed at, just do. Smiling makes the body to release a platoon of endorphins that then work to bring positive changes to your mood. If smiling doesn’t uplift your mood, try smiling at another person and their smile back will lighten up your face.

    We are always behind a certain veil that we do not want to let go off lest we be mistaken for being something that we are not and thus be shunned. Scream as loud as you want or just cry your eyes out. Dwell into an emotional catharsis because at the end of the day, your feelings do matter and they matter more than the facade that you have created as a result of societal pressure for all these years.

    Read a Book

    Not just any book that will probably disturb your senses even more, but a positive one that has lots of jokes in it or has a message you can learn from. If you are not so interested in philosophy, you could just read on something that you have interests in.
