People are often jealous of us, I think it's mostly because we're so happy, but happiness is something we work for.
My husband and I have done a lot of psychological research and we've used what we've learned to improve our lives.
The most helpful thing we've found is raising your base level of happiness. Once the level of happiness you return to is "pretty happy" it's easy to start living your own life and embracing the positive things you experience.
Igor Ledochowski's Life Long Learning really helped as well. He sets up a mental castle for you to escape to and builds a really good set up for living.
