Who doesn’t want to be happy…well everybody does yet many of us struggle to be!


What stops us from being happy? What stops us from making our day awesome?


I am sure many of us would come up with hundreds of reasons, some would blame their boss,or their spouse, or the neighbour, or a friend, finances, traffic, pollution, population, climate change….if its raining we would want sun, if its hot we would want the winters..uff...yes! it is damn easy to find reasons to be irritated and unhappy!


But don't you worry, we get this sorted ones and for all!!! We give you some basic & necessary things to be happy!


Air

Oh yes! The air we breathe more specifically oxygen, which is plenty…thankfully!

We would have said fresh air but the pollution angle makes us not to say so ;) but then you still are breathing which means you are alive, you have a life! Come ‘on the fact that you are alive is the utmost important thing to be happy!

You got to value this and be grateful about it.


Water

Imagine a day without it? Not only for drinking it for existence but also for your daily purpose! Lets say for cooking, because not bathing daily would make many happy..isn’t it? ;)

If you have access to a tap with flowing water..you are already luckier than most of the population on earth! Chennai is running out of water…and is you still have plenty to take a shower…you must consider yourself very lucky!

So if you wish to stay happy and want your friends and family and your future generation to be happy, value it the most and conserve it..do the best you can!

And you know what…when you start doing things not only for yourself but for others, you yourself will feel a sense of pride, satisfaction and ultimate happiness!


Food

Trust us! If you have got the option of choice in what you want to eat..it is a luxury! There are so many who don’t ever get to eat once a day! Do we need to say more? I don’t think so!


Shelter

Well we are glad our Honorable PM is working towards his dream of providing shelter to all by 2022 with all basic amenities like electricity and water. That itself means that even if we consider only India there are still many who don’t have a roof over them! Many may have but they may still not have electricity, toilet, and drinking water, etc forget about a TV or a fridge or an AC which is distant dream for a majority!

Oh! You have got so much to be thankful for…so much to be happy about!


Family, Friends and a means to connect with them

You know a language..you are educated..you can use technology..you have the ability to communicate..you have a family…friends and people around who are your well wishers…even if you think you are alone and no one loves you or cares for you..you still have people around you, if you don’t like humans you still have the animals, the birds…don't like them either..the forget everything you have your mobile/laptop and an internet connection because of which you are able to read this…that means even if you don’t have/like things or people you still have got something and trust us this more than sufficient!


You must have seen that meme which say aaj ki basic requirement - roti,kapda,makaan aur wifi! ;) :D haha..


See the point is that there are numerous such basic things we can list, it can even include the clothes & footwear you wear or the job you have got which gives you money! from public transport, to cabs or your bike or car to so many other things you use daily but don't realise there value because they are easily available/accessible to you!


Well! We are sure after reading this, we have made you think! You may even start thinking about so many other things you have..if so, try making a gratitude list…that would boost your good mood not only for now but for any other you need it!


The actual thing is, it is not any particular thing/thought/person that would make you happy…

IT IS ONLY YOU THAT IS REQUIRED!


How much ever you may believe that money,luxury,people,love,status,success etc will make you happy but happiness is not about achieving/having/reaching or possessing…it is your state of mind! Happiness is a choice you make!


Don’t run behind it, don’t benchmark it, don’t delay it!

If you want to be happy then just be happy! Start with a SMILE :)


And yes, once you know you are happy your day would itself be awesome.. and gradually your life will also be!

On this very happy note.. Lets recall the rhyme –


If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands (clap clap) If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands (clap clap) If you're happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands. (clap clap)

If you're happy and you know it, stomp your feet (stomp stomp) If you're happy and you know it, stomp your feet (stomp stomp) If you're happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it If you're happy and you know it, stomp your feet. (stomp stomp)

If you're happy and you know it, shout "Hurray!" (hoo-ray!) If you're happy and you know it, shout "Hurray!" (hoo-ray!) If you're happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it If you're happy and you know it, shout "Hurray!" (hoo-ray!)

If you're happy and you know it, do all three (clap-clap, stomp-stomp, hoo-ray!) If you're happy and you know it, do all three (clap-clap, stomp-stomp, hoo-ray!) If you're happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it If you're happy and you know it, do all three. (clap-clap, stomp-stomp, hoo-ray!)


All we can suggest it..Invest in yourself, stay positive,stay fit, stay creative and keep your smile intact.

Always remember only YOU are responsible for YOUR HAPPINESS!
