What is Happiness?

Happiness is the ability to consistently recognize that Life's Good, no matter what challenges we may need to be overcome. Happiness is deeply rooted in close, supportive relationships with others. Social connections are particularly important to teens, as student happiness can also depend on relationships formed with teachers and peers.
