In the traditional yoga world, it is important to say affirmations daily. The objective being that the subconscious mind absorbs these new positive affirmations and over time you and your subconscious mind begin to believe them.  An affirmation that encourages happiness goes like this:  My happiness comes from within, and I will smile even in the face of adversity. I will laugh often, but not at anyone’s expense. People cannot take my happiness away, unless I give them permission.  Make up your own affirmation, or use one already written.  You will notice a difference as you progress through the day!
