Happiness: How To Find It Even When Things Are Hard

Everyone wants to be happy, and we put a lot of effort into it. We focus a lot of our life on being happy. And it’s not even just an individual matter. For example, our Constitution even protects “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

So, are you happy?  You say you’re happy, but what makes you truly happy?  Is it genetic, and out of your control? Who are the happiest people in the world, and why isn’t that you?

KSL’s Michelle King talked to three experts and got some great happiness tips.  They go through hard times, but always find a way to choose “happy”.

Sometimes your problems are the everyday variety. On the other hand, you may combat unexpected tragedies, like addiction and depression. With these tools, you are better prepared for what life throws at you.
