happiness -

Happiness or joy is a state of mind or feeling characterized by sufficiency to pleasure, love, fulfillment, pleasure, or intense joy. Various philosophical, religious, psychological, and biological approaches have been done to define happiness and determine its source.

The philosophers and religious thinkers have often defined happiness in terms of a good life and not just as an emotion. This definition is used to translate eudaimonia (Greek: εὐδαιμονία) and is still used in the theory of kindness.

Although direct measurement of the degree of happiness is still a challenge, some researchers have developed tools for doing so, for example with The Oxford Happiness Questionnaire. The researchers have also identified some things related to happiness: social relationships and interactions, marital status, employment, health, freedom of democracy, optimism, religious involvement, income, and closeness with other happy people.
