The quality of the life we lead is on a downward spiral due to numerous reasons like stress, commitments, and personal issues – the list could go on forever.

However, it is strange to think that only about 10 percent of this feeling is actually based on the ‘reality of life’. Many people who report that they are very happy are neither well enough, nor rich enough, or engaged in such worthwhile work that they ought to be very happy. But they are! So obviously this state is not just because of one’s life circumstances. Happiness is not the product of riches, success, beauty or popularity.
