People spend too much time to think about terrorists but obesity is killing 30.000 people and obesity related deaths are 300.000 people every year in American. People care too much on diet and exercising but do not pay attention enough for what is more important: their happiness.
Happiness is not just the result of success, it actually causes it
This is described clearly in the famous book 59 Seconds: Change Your Life in Under a Minute by Richard Wiseman
Sonja Lyubomirsky at the University of California and his colleagues made the daunting task of reviewing hundreds of studies in which experimenters selected people cheered, and then monitored the effects of their newly acquired subjects joy. All kinds of procedures have been used to allow participants to feel happy, including having the feel of fresh flowers, read positive affirmations (“I’m really a good person”), eating chocolate cake, dance, or watch a movie funny. Sometimes, the experimenters used the ruse, telling participants that they had performed particularly well on an IQ test or ensure that they “accidentally” found some money in the street. Regardless of the method used, the overall result was clear—happiness doesn’t just flow from success; it actually causes it.

To feel the smell again, you have to leave the room to outside and then comeback. Happiness is also the same. We have something to be happy about, perhaps a good job, perhaps financial security, perhaps good friends, a nice place to live…. But time goes by, we get acquainted with what we have and we actually don’t realize the wonderful thing we have around. So be grateful for what you have is a good way to be happy.
