 HAPPINESS IS A STATE OF MIND   (World  Happiness  Day, 20th March)-by Dr.Sunil Chopra

 HAPPINESS IS A STATE OF MIND   (World  Happiness  Day, 20th March)-by Dr.Sunil Chopra

In an assignment handed over to the pupils of ‘AVANTI HOUSE SCHOOL, ENGLAND’  the teacher asked to write–“What do you want to be when you grow up?” According to the teacher one student’s answer was quite weird as he just wrote ‘Happy’, but in my views the answer was quite fine and absolutely correct.

Our sole aim in life should be to lead a happy and healthy life. The word ‘HAPPY’ comes from the middle English word ‘hap’ which means ‘good luck’. It is worth sharing that several of early European words for ‘HAPPY’ really pointed towards ‘BEST OF LUCK’ rather than reflecting feelings of joy.

Happiness is a state of mind and its definition as well as meaning varies from person to person. For some a lot of wealth is happiness and for others attaining the highest educational qualification. For me happiness is nothing short of an enjoyable or satisfied state of being. Happiness makes us admirable, healthier, successful, learn better and increases our life span.

Happiness is up to us only, and for it nothing but an optimistic attitude is required. Stress and worry are the main culprits and they should be taken head on. If there exists  a solution to your problem, then why worry and if your problem has no solution or cure, then what will be the use of worrying?

We must stop finding faults and always think of remedies. We should leave no stone unturned to maintain an upbeat personality because….

‘For every ailment under the Sun,

There is a remedy or there is none.

If there be one, try to find it and if there

be none ,never mind it.’

Great brief description about happiness explained by Dr.Chopra for sure it is a state of mind.
Additionally most people add many barriers to their happiness they could be social, materialistic or others.
If one keeps his or her expectations reasonable and achievable then easily you can achieve happiness. Every effort must be made to stay happy and healthy.

Hats off to Dr.Chopra for his concise write up on the most wanted thing today……. Happiness.

Dr.Chopra has correctly stated that happiness is a state of mind. It is true that happiness is a relative term. To be happy, even if it is only for a brief spell, is not very difficult. No matter how down and out one is, if he actually and sincerely tries to help someone else, the satisfaction that he gets automatically translates to happiness. I believe that this is the simple key. Try to empathise and practically go all out to help, and you will end up happier.

DESOR ji,your comments are nothing ,but a beautiful piece of advice for we all.

Absolutely right, happiness is a state of mind, the way one thinks. Some are happy come what may and some other are never

In our own way we all want to be happy and go to lengths to seek it. Each one of us has his or her parameters to achieve happiness. In my opinion happiness is a state of contentment achieved through the pleasures of giving, sharing and seeing someone smile and laugh. So be healthy and happy !

Nidhi March 20, 2021 at 2:45 pm
