Happiness is not a fluffy concept developed in modern times. On the Pursuit of Happiness website the following sentence denotes a sense of history: “The psychological and philosophical pursuit of happiness began in China, India and Greece nearly 2,500 years ago with Confucius, Buddha, Socrates, and Aristotle.”
Wikipedia informs that: “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence. These are “unalienable rights” which the Declaration says has been given to all human beings by their Creator, and for which governments are created to protect.
Happiness as a term then has a long history and remains in the minds and hearts of men and women.
A Wellness lifestyle is oriented to achieving increasing levels of happiness, also known as wellbeing or positive mental and emotional states.
