Happy - are you?

Are you happy?
What would make you happier?

Can you accept it if you yourself, or someone else is simply feeling down, with or without an obvious reason?
Do you try to put a smile on your face, or bring a smile to someone else’s face?
Can other people cheer you up when you feel down?

Do you have something to which you can cling (a belief system or an activity, relationship or object) even when you feel unhappy, and if so, does it help?

Do you believe that you have the option to choose to be happy, or is that fake?

Are your thoughts on this constant through your life, or do they change as you age, or change influenced by some other factor(s) than time?

I had a look at some of the writings of Australia's "Dr Happy", Tim Sharp. https://www.drhappy.com.au/

I read https://www.inc.com/laura-garnett/13...work-life.html and rather miss, in that list, the good feeling from getting a job well done, just that feeling for itself.

https://www.theladders.com/career-ad...ed-by-research I liked this as optimistic, yet it seemed do-able.

In particular, I’d like to hear whether thoughts about whether the answers to the above questions are different, for you,
  • living in Switzerland, from what they were while you previously lived in any other country, or
  • if you currently spend blocks of time in two (or more) countries, how being in one or in the other, and/or the shifting between them affects your happiness.
