Happiness is considered very important in life. Why is it difficult to define? What factors are important in achieving happiness?


Happiness has never been easy to define owing to its subjective nature. For some it is connected with gaining plenty of money, others relate happiness with a fulfilling life complete with children and family. Notwithstanding its subjectivity, for happiness to be felt factors such as a healthy state of mind and body are critical.

Happiness is an elusive emotion. Firstly, the complexity of the human mind combined with the obscured nature of happiness make it difficult to define. For some people happiness can be a consequence of achievement, riches, relationships, and health, while for others it may be tied to poetry, weather, songs, solitude, and nature. Finally, this variable nature of happiness makes it nearly impossible to define, yet it is highly coveted.

In order to achieve a state of happiness, one must have a healthy state of body and mind. These factors determine whether happiness felt by an individual falls under normalcy or wickedness. For example, psychopaths derive happiness and satisfaction by abusing others, including children. This state of happiness is condemnable, as it is not considered normal in a society. Nevertheless, these traits also makes it difficult to define happiness.


In conclusion, it may be difficult to cramp happiness into a concise definition as it varies from person to person. However, a sound state of mind and body are two of the most important factors in achieving happiness.
