Come on get happy!

Sometimes, when I'm feeling mad at the world, I do a google search for "cute animals." This always yields results that make my heart melt and my teeth feel soft! 

I've been trying to make myself happier lately. But I still tend to get all mad or sad when stupid little things go wrong in my life! I've decided to start taking short walks everyday (because most say this is a source of stress-relief) and also taking time to "do nothing."
My twisted self will probably count the walking time as the "nothing" time, just so I have more TIME to do other things. Ah well. 

Here is the wikipedia definition of happiness:

Happiness is a state of mind or feeling characterized by contentment, satisfaction, pleasure, or joy.[1] A variety of philosophical, religious, psychological and biologicalapproaches have striven to define happiness and identify its sources.Philosophers and religious thinkers often define happiness in terms of living a good life, or flourishing, rather than simply as an emotion. Happiness in this older sense was used to translate the Greek Eudaimonia, and is still used in virtue ethics. In everyday speech today, however, terms such as well-being or quality of life are usually used to signify the classical meaning, and happiness usually refers[citation needed] to the felt experience or experiences that philosophers historically called pleasure.
