Hi When I researched the key to happiness, I found that there are multiple keys to be happy. One of the answers I got was to set goals, to live life to the fullest, do things for others, live life mindfully, and other ones (it was a long list). The New York Times also points out the importance of income equality as being a factor of happiness. They also say that gratitude can be important too.
Another website talks about happiness in a very different way, they say “The key to happiness and fulfillment in life doesn’t come by achieving but rather is a result of how we express ourselves. When you express love and acceptance you are happy. When you express rejection and judgment you will be unhappy” (http://www.pathwaytohappiness.com /writings_happiness_key.html paragraph 5). This same website talks about happiness rooting in being aware. Being aware of your actions and your words. While the New York Times argues not to focus too much on being happy and that making time for family and friends is the key/keys to happiness. What do you think the key to happiness is?
