It is true that happiness cannot be bought, it comes from within. Following are the ways you can be happy from within.
1)Grass looks greener the other side
You need to understand that what you have others might not have. So count your blessing and thank god for what you have. If you feel you would be happy getting what the other person has, utilize your time trying to work towards getting it. No need to be stressful.
2)Keep yourself busy
An empty brain is a devil’s workshop. The more you sit idle and just think, the more you will be unhappy. Keep doing things, even if it is just reading a book or going for a walk.
3)Accept it or change it
If you are unhappy about something, think if you can change it. If the answer is NO, then accept it and be happy. If the answer is YES, then go ahead and change it. A place between ‘accept’ and ‘change’ (which I call as ‘cribbing’) will only bring unhappiness.
4)Mind your own business
What is going on in other person’s life is none of your business. Focus on your goals, your hobbies, your family, and friends.
5)Be at peace with everybody
It is very important to make peace with everybody and most importantly be at peace with yourself. Forgive people who hurt you. Unforgivingness will only make you unhappy.
