Happy minded people have made peace with themselves. They know who they are and they like accept and like themselves. 

They make the most of their own free time and they put it to good use to pursue their goals, to relax and recharge or to work on their hobbies and interests. They also do the things they enjoy.

3) They don't stay stressed 

Life can seem tough and unfair at times and we all have bills to pay and everyday challenges and obstacles to face and overcome, but you cannot feel good if you're constantly stressed, angry or frustrated. 

Happy people don't play the victim and they don't spend all their time moaning and complaining they have also learned that life is too short and precious and they have worked out that there is no point in worrying and getting and staying stressed all the time.

It's not a case that happy people don't have their issues and problems they have just learned that worrying and getting stressed, especially over things that are not in their control or worth worrying about.

Change the way you react to things that are not in your control and allow yourself plenty of time to get ready in the morning or if you have to go out.

Happy people know how to problem solve and they have learned the importance of relaxing with methods like meditation and hypnosis to manage their stress.

They have come to realize that there are better and calmer ways to react and perceive their external circumstances, situations and  the opinions and actions of other people.

4) They decide and choose to be happy 

Happy people don't just sit around and hope and weight of happiness show up, they have also realized that there is far more to be happier than relying on material things or physical external situations.

Real happiness comes from within and the wonderful things is, if you change your inner thoughts and perceptions, you can change how you feel despite what's taking place around you because it's your thoughts about you and your situations that control your feelings and not your circumstances themselves.

Be aware that at any given time you have a choice to feel good spiritually regardless of what's happening (accept exceptional circumstances). It is your prerogative and right to choose how you're going to perceive a situation or anything that has or could happen.

How you feel depends more on the thoughts you have about a situation rather than the actual situation itself so this gives you the power to choose how you want to react to or perceive a situation, so try to look for the positive in most situations.

Life is all about emotions and feelings and those who learn how to master their emotions become the winners in life and go on to live a long and happy, successful life. 

Happiness is an emotional and physical state and it is something that you need to work.  

Life is so much easier when you become that master of your emotions rather them mastering you. Your emotions are determined by what you give your focus of attention to or how you react and how you allow your outside situations and circumstances to affect you.

Take control of your mind, learn how to deal with your anxious thoughts and only think about things that do not make you feel bad. This takes a bit of practice, but the rewards are well worth it.

Your emotions act as your inner guidance system and it is quite a simple formula and process. If you are experiencing negative emotions, then it's your inner guidance system telling you that, either you're not where you want to be at or you need to change your attitude or change what you're thinking about.

If you start to feel anxious or fearful do not fight your fear, instead embrace it, observe it and ride it like surfing a wave, let yourself know it's just feelings and feelings can never harm me.

Most of time, if you're feeling bad it is because of the information that you have been feeding yourself. if you want to feel good them you will need to change the information and feed your mind with more positive information and start to reject and replace all negative information.

If you're feeling bad, then it is probably down to what you're thinking about, to change the way you've been feeling stop focusing on unwanted outcomes and your present results and start focusing on what you want.

The basic formula to feeling better is the thoughts you pursue will determine how you feel and your feelings will determine the actions you take and the results you achieve in every area and every level of your life.

Start to be aware of how you’re feeling at any given moment. If you’re feeling bad, then try to work out the reason you're feeling bad, if it’s because you’re having negative thoughts change what you’re thinking about and notice how your energy changes with, it has.

Sometimes you have to find other ways of making more money or learn to try and manage on what you're earning, sometimes you have to learn how to live within your means and still make the most of what you've got and what's available to you.

Focus on doing the things you enjoy or what you're passionate about and who knows you might make some extra money from it. 

Try to live your life to the fullest and try to make the most of every day and from every experience. 

7) They stay in the present moment

Happy people live for the now, they don't care about the bad things or memories that have happened in the past, but also they don't worry about the future either, if they look into the future they only view it from a positive and optimistic outlook and perspective.

Happy people have learned about the importance of not living in the painful emotions and memories of the past, they have an attitude of what's let go of the past. They know that what happened has happened.

What's done is done and the past is now just an illusion and not something you need to focus on because you cannot do anything to change it, so let it go and look forward to the future and all the good that's still to come.

We all go through traumatic and sad times, but there comes a time when you need to move on because if you carry on thinking about your past negative experiences then you will continue to feel bad.

Live your life in the now and try to appreciate all that is good like the beauty of nature that is all around you instead of going into your head and giving all your attention to and creating an imaginary world depicting all that is bad.

When you stop self doubting and self sabotaging and you stop putting yourself down and you just allow life to happen naturally without you getting in the way, then you will soon find that life and other people will start to treat you good.

True and lasting happiness starts from with and it needs to come without any physical conditions or wants. 

The foundation of happiness has to start with liking and loving yourself conditionally. 

Make it a habit to tell yourself a few times in the morning that you love and like yourself because when you like and respect yourself you will start to get more respect from others.

Be your true authentic self, many people try to put on an act or be different in front of certain people to try and impress them. 

But when you have put on a false personality and you change your character or you change who you really because you want to impress or please others then you will deny yourself of your inner happiness.

9) Happy people keep their mind and themselves active

You need to learn how to complain and moan less and learn how to accept and enjoy life more because your life is really is what you make it.

Happiness starts from within, and it's not just about good and positive thinking because there are many more factors that can affect your mood.

Everything should be done in moderation and if you pay attention to and you look after your body then your body will serve you well. 

Try to eat healthy, balanced, varied diet, which should supply you with a good source of vitamins and minerals. What you put into your body can reflect on your skin condition and if you look good you will feel good, plus, what you eat the day before can have an influence on how you feel today.

To be happy you need to feel energized and eating more healthy food will boost your energy levels, if you find healthy foods a bit boring add a bit of fruit or flavoring. If you feel fatigued all the time it may pay you to have a food intolerance or food sensitivity test.

Happy people know the importance of looking after their bodies like exercising and getting plenty of rest and relaxation. Do not worry or obsess about getting old, live for the now and just develop a healthy lifestyle.

Create some happy habits, cultivate a sense of fun, try to have a good time as much as you possibly can no matter what. 

Exercise your freedom to choose happiness. Decide who you want to be, what sort of person you want to become. 

Define yourself as a happy and spiritually person, do your best, but avoid trying to be flawless and perfect. 

Don't allow your environment and your past experiences to define who you are.

14) They have developed good thinking patterns 

Although it will benefit you to spend a few minutes several times a day thinking positive you don't have to spend all your day doing it because that is just too difficult and draining. 

The important thing to do is to not to think negative, be aware of your thoughts and don't get emotionally involved with any bad feeling thoughts, just ignore them or override and replace any negative ones with better thoughts.

You don't need to live your life in the grip of your past and the more you learn how to let go the closer you will become too emotional freedom. 

You can have what you want or you can create what you don't want depending on which choices you decide to make.

Your mind creates the things you expect to happen so get into the habit of only expecting the best and expect good things to happen. Know with absolute certainty that the things and life you want will come true even before they have.

Expand your awareness beyond your old beliefs and judgement and do not buy into what your imagination is trying to predict. 

Spend a little time each day focusing on the good things you have even the small things that you take for granted.

Your mind will constantly scan for dangers, conflicts and problems especially at times when you feel negative or stressed, it will even make things up, so be aware of your over cautious imagination and do not get sucked into a inner conflict with your mind. 

Give your mind more useful and beneficial things to do, workout and solve instead of keep going over the same worries and concerns all the time.

15) Be thankful and grateful

When you're feeling sad, unhappy or negative it is because your focus of attention has shifted onto what you don't want. 

The fastest way to change your energy and improve your life is to practice showing gratitude. 

Negative focus of attention will disrupt your feel good free flowing life force energy. 

But when you are expressing gratitude it will instantly shift your feeling because gratitude will put you back into the all powerful free flowing positive energy of the now. 

Which will also put you in the energy of attracting the things you want, so not only will it make you feel better in time all that the good will begin to move toward you.

It is when we give thanks for the things that we think are small, that we see the biggest effect. You should still appreciate the big things but you should also appreciate the small things each and every day.

Each day try to make it a routine habit to state five things that you are truly grateful for, try and vary the things you're grateful and thankful for a bit.

Or you could start a gratitude journal because You will be astonished at how quickly jotting down the things that you appreciate can build your positive thinking and positive energy.

A study conducted at the University of California and the University of Miami has revealed that the participants who were actively 'grateful' everyday went on to enjoy better mental and physical health, they also made more progress in their personal goals, and they felt a better sense of emotional and physical well-being.

16) Avoid the things that make you unhappy

There is a lot written about doing things that will make you unhappy, but the general rule to complete happiness is to not to or not think about the things that make you unhappy.

Sometimes all you need to do is to do the exact opposite of what makes you unhappy or makes you feel bad, if you feel tired and exhausted spend some time resting and relaxing. 

If you hate your job change it or accept it, if your in a bad relationship either work at it or end it.

If your friends are nasty, getting you down or they are very negative do not bother with them or make friends with more positive and fun people or groups. If you are a pessimistic person turn into a optimist.
