However, there is not the concordant view for what is the happiness.

Each person has a completely different view of happiness and how to achieve it.

Happiness should depend on different people.

Besides, money can make people happier as they give the priceless and really pleasant possibility to help others. Happiness in nothing if there is nobody to share it or if people around are unhappy. In this case, an individual who has money can solve some problems and difficulties experienced by others and share happiness with them. Money given for treatment or charity, spent on food for homeless cats and dogs, given to a random roofless person make others feel a bit better and thus happier. Doubtless, in this strategy, the true objective of the full human being is hidden.

The research showed that money and age affected how happy people are. The study did not show that money can buy happiness, but it did reveal a link between a lack of money and unhappiness. Unhappier people were in lower income groups or unemployed. The study also suggested the older we become, the less happy we are. Globally, teenagers are the happiest people. The least happy age group is 50-59 – only 16 percent of those in their fifties said they were very happy. The things that make us happy include good health, financial security and a happy marriage, not cars and clothes.

Everyone defines happiness according to their personal perpectives.

One can gain happiness from simple pleasures of life, such as receiving a kiss from a three-year old, to advanced pleasures, such as a happy marriage or a successful career....

Happiness is one of the many emotions humans experience.

There are a number of attributes that correlate with happiness: relationships and social interaction, extroversion, marital status, employment, health, democratic freedom, optimism, religious involvement, income, and proximity to other happy people.
