Happiness is a feeling of well-being, satisfaction, positive emotions and rapture. According to the understanding of psychologists, happiness is the matter of the character and is associated with the traits of personality.
At the beginning of the 21st century, an American psychologist Martin Seligman found that there is a growing number of people who suffer from mental illness. Supposing that there is an insufficient number of psychologists who could help in the treatment of people, he aimed to create a new wave of psychologists who will be dealing with the happiness and teach people how to be happy. The discipline of positive psychology is founded, and it had the task to investigate and analyze what makes happiness.
When we share a smile to somebody, this normally leads to a higher level of happiness. That sort of behavior results in relaxation, which allows getting new perspectives. All people want is to be happy, but many of them don’t have enough strength. They have lost their strength over their life experiences. Such people are hard to relax, they have too many obligations, and they are trying to catch only the moments of happiness rather than trying to turn happiness into a lifetime condition.
There is a group of people which is always full of energy and happier than the average people. Scientific researches show that this group of people never becomes depressed. This extraordinary group consists of kindergarten-aged children. Sleep is one of the key factors for maintaining a high level of energy and happiness. If the amount of sleep is not enough, the body becomes tired and exhausted. Studies have shown that only three percent of people need five hours of sleep, while the rest of the population needs seven to eight hours of sleep in order to revitalize the body.
