What is the secret to happiness?


 What makes us truly, lastingly happy, and how do we bring more of those things into our lives?


A complex question, to be sure, but three tips always come to mind for me:


1)  Let yourself feel what you feel. Happiness is not about stuffing bad feelings down, or relentless positivity.


2) In any given situation, focus on the journey, the process, or the present moment rather than the end results. Not only will you feel more engaged, but you'll also probably be more successful!


3) Make kindness THE central theme in your life. Kindness and compassion build a strong sense of connectedness, and nothing could be more important for our health, happiness, or even our longevity than the strength of our social ties.
