Happiness

smiles

I just watched a documentary called “Happy“, all about happiness and how it affects people. It was so awesome!

So many people strive to find happiness through money, status and the way they look. But none of these things bring happiness! The three things that do bring happiness: personal growth, friends, and giving to others. Isn’t that interesting?

I’m lucky to work for Club Penguin. I learn something new every day, I work with a team of great friends, and I even get to connect with awesome players around the world who are also my great friends online. Not only that, but I also get to give back to my local community (like volunteering and raising money for local charities) and give back to causes around the world (like building safe places, protecting endangered animals and providing medical help for the sick.)

Basically, I have a dream job that helps me be happy and create awesome things. How awesome is that?

So the question is – what could you do to be happier? Is there something you could do differently that would make you a happier person?

    The best thing I and everyone else can do in my opinion is to make sure they’re in a positive environment. If there are negative things in the way is can make you less happy or even depressed. Stress is also a factor, since less stress = more happiness. I always make sure I am working on something not too stressful, and if I find myself getting stressed, then I destress. (something I personally enjoy doing to destress is listening to EDM – electronic dance music)

    Friends are also a key factor, as interacting with friends vs not interacting with anybody makes a huge difference to me. It gives me a boost of happiness and helps if you’re feeling lonely and/or sad. I always make sure I’m interacting with others (via Twitter, instant messaging, or even through website comments) throughout the day. You talking to someone might even make someone’s day by talking to them, too. πŸ™‚

    What I want to do to be happy is to help other people get chances in life I take for granted and they don’t really get. I’m constantly donating to real-life charities such as Goodwill and I’ve already donated 50,000 coins to CFC. I can’t say that I haven’t really been a sad person for that long, I’m really glad and fortunate of that too. Really thanks Polo, for letting me say that.

    I would like to work for club penguin, I’d start as a cp support person, and work my way up to a graphic designer or a writer. I might stay support because I know sooooo much about cp, and I love sharng my info with others. When I see sad penguins, I just walk over and say “CYBER HUG!” I’ve even had a whole room do a group ug for a penguin before. Its cool when you see others care.

      That’s interesting, isn’t it? Researchers have found that buying gifts for others can bring happiness.
