This article summarizes what i read in most of the positive psychology articles..
I require a considerable dosage of positive thoughts to maintain “balance” (another one of my favourite words), so i guess i land up reading such articles.
From “An enigma called happiness”
by ‘Geetha Padmanabhan’ for ‘The Hindu’
Ok, happiness comes from within. You tap the source of happiness and use it to still the demons within. Happiness is an emotion. It does not spring from entertaining your whims. Lasting enjoyment comes from living life with zest, pursuing your career, love, friendship and hobbies with good values. Happiness is a choice. You can choose to brood and be angry or find the brighter side and be happy with what you have. To reach that place, we need more than enough faith, more than enough relationships, more than enough physical, emotional and mental resources. You are at peace with yourself and the world when mind (intent), body (action) and spirit (conscience) vibrate in unison.
