Do you ever think about how happiness affects your life? Happiness isn’t only being around people, isn’t about feeling energetic, joyful, and satisfied whether when you are alone or with friends. Some days we feel sad, unable to show happiness or joy. But It isn’t always a one-day process. It takes time. You should never feel stressed or pressured to act happy when you need time to grief or heal. Happiness feels different for everyone: some people could lay on a couch, watching a movie and feel utterly happy, others attend parties and hang out with friends.
no matter what happiness means to you, it will always have a huge impact, mentally or physically. It is important to understand and spread it.
