It turns out, people are only as happy as they think they are.

Happiness is under our own control through what we think about.
In addition to thinking your way to happiness, another quick way to feel better about yourself is to help someone who is in real need.
No time or money to help? Just think about them! They are real. While you read this on your Mac, PC, or Mobile phone, they are wondering if they will eat, be beaten, or live another day. Forget about unhappiness, you don’t have time for that.
