Happiness is the key to all the successful events that happen in our life, as it is related to career, physical or mental health, etc. For example, in The kapil sharma show which is a comedy show, we can see in it that patients that have been suffering from long-term diseases show recovery from their diseases in a faster, and easier way. If the patient is mentally unstable or has been showing slow recovery then doctors suggest the patient’s family join the laughter therapy for recovery.

Psychology of the happiness is defined as the positive effects of the mood, or emotional state which brings positive thoughts, and feeling. In this busy world, full of chaos, everyone has forgotten to take care of themselves or to maintain their personal life, they almost have forgotten to smile, the smile has been replaced by worries, tension, depression, anxiety, irritation, etc. Due to the chaos full life, people are changing their healthy lifestyle schedules to unhealthy ones which bring too many diseases and health problems that should be considered as topics of concern in everyone’s life.

Another psychology of happiness related to career is that in this busy schedule life, everyone is so depressed for having overloaded jobs, those students who are giving competitive exams but are not able to clear them, those who have cleared exams but are not able to find the job, increasing population results in unemployment too, which will be dangerous for our country, so to overcome these problems, happiness in our life is important so that it brings positive vibes in ourselves, positive mind helps in success in the easier, and faster way because happiness gives you inner peace.

Brain chemicals or hormones that make you feel happy:

Our body produces numerous hormones for different biological processes in the individuals for good. There are four hormones that make you feel good, and promote happiness while losing depression, and anxiety problems, namely, Dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphins which are distinct from each other but almost does the same function, help in feeling pleasure, and happiness, help in making bond or relationship with others, etc. Oxytocin is also called ‘the love hormone’. There are two other hormones that are secreted by the adrenal medulla, epinephrine and norepinephrine which prepare the individual to face physical or emotional stress or reduce the stress.

Definition of hormones:

Hormones are molecules, or chemical messengers which carry information from that site and send the signal to take action on the target organ by releasing hormone for that particular signal which is received by the receptor that perfectly fits for that signal, and these are secreted by the endocrine cells.

Your lifestyle choices relate to the psychology of happiness:

There are some points that show that the psychology of happiness relates to lifestyle choices which include how people manage themselves, their food habits, their way of living, their routine, how they manage physical or mental stress, etc.

Food choices:

Today, food-eating habits are the main issue of spreading diseases at a faster rate. Those people who eat healthy food have a high survival rate than unhealthy food-eating people. Healthy food includes which have high nutritional value such as fruits: kiwi, watermelon, pomegranate, muskmelon, blueberries, guava, pineapple, papaya, etc. Vegetables: zucchini, broccoli, spinach, cabbage, beans, bottle gourd, sponge gourd, bitter gourd, etc. All the organic food helps in improving digestion, boosts the immune system, makes you feel full, and avoids junk, or deep-fried food that makes you unhealthy. Eating healthy food keeps you healthy in mind, reduces mental stress, headache, and a lot of problems, and indirectly or directly keeps you happy from the outside, and inside too.   

Sleep-wake cycle:

Manage your 24 hours of circadian rhythm, or biological clock. Your happiness totally depends on your day, when you wake up late in the morning, it disturbs your whole day’s schedule, which leads to irritation, rush in everything, and no work will be done correctly. So wake up early in the morning, and for that, you have to correct your sleeping schedule. Take a minimum of 8 hours of sleep regularly to stay fit, and calm in mind. A correct schedule keeps your mind fresh, which is the key to happiness in your life.  

Managing work or personal life:

In this busy scheduled life, we don’t have enough time to manage our work, and personal life differently. Due to this, it leads to mental and physical stress which carries diseases and an unhealthy lifestyle. Instead of doing excessive work in an office, do only limited work on a regular basis, and learn to say no. make time for your family and yourself too instead of spending time on your mobile phone. All of these keep you away from depression, anxiety, etc. which affects your happiness.


Follow your passion, apart from office work. Do some creativity in your life to make your day interesting. You can learn new things on holidays, and in your free time such as singing, cooking, baking, and swimming, you can play games like cricket, volleyball, badminton, table tennis, etc. which keeps you healthy from inside, and outside, and happy too.     

How they take failure:

Some people due to their failure in every take of their career, feel discouraged, and sad then they carry depression, failure, anxiety, panic attacks, mental stress, and sarcasm by society, they try to harm themselves which also leads to cardiovascular diseases and some other problems. Do not get disappointed in your failure because failure makes you better than the previous time. Try hard to get success in your goal, just focus on your goal, and be consistent. And, when you get success after that failure, it will make you happy.
