Happiness according to me is something that keeps us away from anxiety and cheered up. If you go to see all our activities are based on deriving enjoyment. For example, we eat so that we can relish the taste of food, we talk because we just enjoy expressing ourselves. So, all these activities we do as a part of being human is to enjoy throughout our life. The four main things eating,sleeping,defending and mating are common to us and animals, but the only thing that differentiates us is the intelligence. We can choose the activities based on our experience and intelligence so that we can derive maximum happiness.

It could be said that one of the (many!) differences between the state of being human and that of being another mammal or life form are the variety of emotions that we are capable of feeling and articulating. Human beings are capable of feeling happy without that being related to the satisfying of purely physical sensation satisfaction such as hunger sated or sexual congress to take two examples. Happiness for humans extends beyond the merely physical; it can be created from being with a certain person or place - think of what makes you happy - and this is why this particular feeling - which extends beyond existence and being in the here and now (when we recall moments of happiness, we can feel that happiness again), contributes to being human.

It doesn't. Happiness cannot be bought or achieved from the outside. Happiness is an impermanent and ghostly idea. Work, family and truth are the paths to satisfaction- but happiness is fleeting.

Happiness relates to how we feel, but it is more than just a passing mood. We are emotional beings and experience a wide range of feelings on a daily basis. Negative emotions – such as fear and anger – help us to get away from danger or defend ourselves. And positive emotions – such as enjoyment and hope – help us to connect with others and build our capacity to cope when things go wrong.Guardian Morning Briefing - sign up and start the day one step ahead Read moreTrying to live a happy life is not about denying negative emotions or pretending to feel joyful all the time. We all encounter adversity and it’s completely natural for us to feel anger, sadness, frustration and other negative emotions as a result. To suggest otherwise would be to deny part of the human condition.Happiness is about being able to make the most of the good times – but also to cope effectively with the inevitable bad times, in order to experience the best possible life overall. Or, in the words of the biochemist turned Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard: “Happiness is a deep sense of flourishing, not a mere pleasurable feeling or fleeting emotion but an optimal state of being.”
