How can anyone expect to achieve a happy state of mind if they are not living in the present? If you worry about the past or live in the fear of the future, you are simply taking yourself away from happiness. We are not saying that simply don’t think about the past or future, use your past to improve your present and live in the moment to have a happy future. It all is basically about living in the MOMENT.
5. They nurture relationships
When people are able to foster deep and meaningful relationships, they tend to understand that there is great value in making others happy. We all have some people who are extremely close to our heart, and if we are able to nurture our relationships with those people, we see happiness on the faces, and that certainly makes us feel happy.
6. They believe in charity
Most of us are good in making our loved ones happy, and that is needed, for sure. But, people who are able to bring a smile on a stranger’s face, are the ones having the most beautiful souls. They strive to achieve happiness by giving it to others and that actually multiplies their blessings.
7. They have goals in life and dream big
Though, we had earlier stated that happy people live in the present, but that does not mean that they don’t have dreams. They dream big, set goals to achieve them and then take the necessary actions. They take care of the future by focusing and working hard in the present.
8. They express gratitude
All of us cannot have everything we ever wish for, but we all still have a lot of blessings in our life. Happy people know how to express gratitude for whatever they have and this makes them have a positive outlook in life and they are also better prepared to handle stressful situations.

10. They accept and embrace change
We all know that change is the only constant thing in the world, yet some people fear change. They are afraid to come out of their comfort zone, but such is not the case with happy people. They know that things change, and as they are optimists, they believe that whatever change is happening, it is all going to be worth it. They also accept the fact there will always be something which is not in their control, and so, they let life flow as it is. If you feel distressed by the fear of change, then my friend, your chances of being happy are quite bleak. You need to accept the changing nature of life to feel happiness.
