What is happiness:-

Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. A variety of biological, psychological, religious, and philosophical approaches have striven to define happiness and identify its sources.


Psychologist Martin Seligman provides the acronym PERMA to summarize Positive Psychology’s correlational findings: humans seem happiest when they have PERMA activities.

  1. P – Pleasure (tasty foods, warm baths, etc.),
  2. E – Engagement (or flow, the absorption of an enjoyed yet challenging activity),
  3. R – Relationships (social ties have turned out to be extremely reliable indicator of Happiness),
  4. M – Meaning (a perceived quest or belonging to something bigger),
  5. A – Accomplishments (having realized tangible goals).
