About Happiness Quiz
Happiness is a strong positive emotion that people strive to experience. A prolonged deprivation of this emotion is hard for people to bear. In some cases of a long absence of happiness can be related to depression and anxiety. In these cases, depression is triggered by inner processes in the body and is treated as a mental illness requiring the attention of a medical professional.

In such cases, the lack of happiness can be overcome by engaging in certain activities, as well as changing how one responds to their circumstances.
