All the Advice on Happiness You’ll Ever Need in One Post

Post written by SysBots. Follow me on Twitter.

If there’s an underlying theme throughout Zen Habits, besides simplifying your life, it’s finding happiness.

I’ve written dozens of articles on different ways to be happy, but it all boils down to one thing: be happy now — don’t wait for it.

Still, for those who want more depth, I’ve compiled a couple dozen of my favorite happiness articles from the archives. I hope you enjoy them! (If not, you’ve missed the point.)
