What is happiness?
One of the definitions says that happiness is a mental state of well-being characterized by positive emotions ranging from contentment to a very intense joy. A variety of biological, psychological, religious and philosophical approaches have striven to define happiness and identify its sources. Positive psychology
endeavors to apply the scientific method to answer questions about what "happiness" is, and how we might attain it.
Philosophers and religious thinkers often define happiness in terms of living a good life, or flourishing, rather than simply as an emotion.
Studies have found that things like money, education, or the weather do not affect happiness the way one might expect. There are various habits that have been correlated with happiness, such as, pleasure, engagement, relationship, meaning and accomplishments.
I really would like to talk (and think) more specifically about each one of these habits. For while, I guess that one of the most important question to be answered is "What can truly make me (and you)  feel happy? Do you really know?"
