Things That Define Happiness

32 Things That Define Happiness

Happiness comes in all shapes and sizes, but I argue that it's most found in the little things. If you think about the moments that truly bring you joy, they're probably not the most exciting times. Instead, they're likely when you've felt peace, indulged in your favourites, or taken time to yourself. See 32 things that capture the meaning of happiness.
