Most of us will try anything if we think that it can improve our quality of life. And if you're especially into self-improvement, you're always looking for the next big thing. Some trends are grounded in scientific facts while others are subject to individual preferences.
What many people don't understand is that happiness is a state of mind, which means it is also a choice. Happiness doesn't just fall out of the sky and land on lucky people—even though it can seem that way at times.
Scientific studies have shown that people can become happy simply by integrating a number of practices into their life. Something as simple as laughing or smiling more can begin to make you a happier person. While many of us perceive happiness as being dependent on external factors (like money or possessions), what makes people most happy is helping others in times of need and looking on the bright side in every situation.

When you start to feel consistently happy, a snowball effect will take place, and all the things that you want in life will come more easily to you as a result.
