A Better Glance at Man’s Definition of How to Be Happy

It’s entirely easy to say be happy, or at least claim that you are. But in all honesty, only the dead knows how real happiness is exactly obtained. Meaning to say, as long as you live, you can’t really find a single formula to real happiness. This makes the word a relative term. What might make some happy might not be the same thing that will make you happy, or vice versa.

But don’t get me wrong, though. The world actually has its general notion about happiness. Or at least, we have standard societal norms that can help us determine what happiness really is, or close to it.

To be happy, most people would wish for a perfect health. Being healthy-- as a part of man’s definition of happiness--- must be complete in all its terms. You have to be physically healthy to be able to say you are happy, but that isn’t complete happiness. You also have be emotionally, socially, and mentally healthy, along with all other significant aspects of life.

But looking around, it is just so sad to note that in order to be happy, we often compromise our health. An irony, I must say, given the fact that a perfect health is one of the best things that man claims to make him happy. We see people party all night, eat a volume of unhealthy foodstuffs, and drink hard liquors while holding cigar on the side. But they say it is what makes them happy, so who cares? Well I say it is not right to compromise your health just so you can be happy.

Now enough with that already. My point here is that man really does the innate need to be happy. We want to be healthy because we’re sad when we are not. On the other hand, many people are compromising their health so they can have moments of happiness, or at least they think they do. But whatever it is that really makes you happy, you need to bear in your mind that happiness is not just a thing you wish for. Again I say, it is not entirely easy to be happy. With the ocean of definitions about happiness, you have to find what’s your own happiness is. But at the end of the day, I guess it’s only fair enough to say that you must not compromise your health and wellness as you chase the ultimate thing that will make you happy.
