10. Painting

Painting will also relax your mind if you'll do it for relaxation not as a work. Concentrate on the brush strokes and colours. It'll make you happy.

11. Face the problems

Do not run from your problems. Face them. Accept that you are facing difficulties. Accept your fears and try to overcome them.

12. Vacation

Go on a vacation. Spend some time with yourself and with your loved ones. A vacation will refresh your mind. It will give you new memories, sometimes new perceptive about situations and a much needed break.

Just keep one thing in mind, there is always another job, another best friend and another man/woman. The most important person in your life is YOU. If you are not happy, How will you make someone else happy? Happiness is not something that you will get from outside world. Happiness is a state of mind. It's a choice. Even if you can't make it, fake it. But stay happy. Live and let live.
