Being happy isn’t always about giggling or having ‘blue birds on your shoulder’. Pollyanna’s relentless happiness could get irritating. Goldie Hawn’s bubbliness isn’t everyone’s style. Old Eeyore in the Pooh Bear stories specialises in gloom but he still has a set of good close friends who tolerate him. Each of us may have a different starting point and style of happiness. The trick is to find ways to live in the upper reaches of your own personal range. Everyone’s happiness looks different. Notice what it is that makes you your happiest self and then deliberately make that happen often.
