Some observations about who is happy

Those whose lives lack music are not happy, professional musicians and music students are not happy either, and those who study music as a hobby in school like ways are not happy. But those who have the freedom to have a music hobby just as they like, are happy: listening to radio, and CDs, singing, playing in a band, learning to compose, having fun and a fullfilling time, finding expression for emotions and room for them in life, using the perspective of wisdom of life in living ióne's life, not exactly just music but something for which music finds room and an expression, trusting emotions and travelling one's own roads in life.
Dream job, something that one likes doing and values in the world, makes one happier.
Birds are not so happy, cat owners are not happy, dog owners who practise agility or spend time in garden or go to summer cottage are happy, horse hobby makes happier. Bees are happy.
Ones who can enjoy greenery are happy. Ones who make an obligation or rigid rule about it are not. But of course one can have a dream job with animals, the nature or agriculture. Ones who do not admire the nature,pets and natural things are not happy.
Ones who do not practise sports are not happy. Ones who practise sports in rigid robot like ways or without fun are not happy. One who practise varied enjoyable sports are very happy: see the advice on moving near the beginning of this blog.
Ones who cunn in sociual relationships are not happy. Ones who make obligations out of friendship and love are not happy. Malicious persons are not happy(?). The rule "Live and let others live!" make social tangles open and social life friendly and rewarding, see for learning it.
Rigid habits make one tired and miserable, while extra exercise adn unusual thing to do every now and then make one strong and agile and so much happier.
Ones who are food-centered in their lives, either because they are thin and hungry or fat and without other content in their lives, are not happy. Ones who eat according to their wishes but are not food-centered are happy.
Ones who keep their body rigidly and artificially are not happy. Ones with relaxed reactive atmospheric emotional way of keeping the body are happy.
In cool or cold weather active and sporty eyes open leisurely enjoying beauty are happy while flegmatic and too plannedly moving are not.
In conversations those who get to talk about things close to their heart in a way that touches the way they experience them, feel happy and with connection to like-minded others, while thoe who get lost in an attempt to communicate their perspective without getting anywhere near it at all. feel frustrated and down.
People who concentrate on thinking while doing practical things are not happy. People who drown in the level of experience while doing positively emotionally motivated practical things are happy.
One who can live according to one's full understanding, also philosophical and emotional wisdom of life, is happy. One who is forced to live according to much more stupid views than one's full understanding and wisdom of life, isn't happy.

So happiness demands many things as part-time activities in daily life, but does not bear them as full-time endeavours, unless they are your very favourites and maybe not even then. How much of each and of which types exactly, varies greatly from one person to another, and should be decided by the individual himself/herself, according to what feels good and makes life better.
If you have a hobby and in addition lots of lazy time, that is pretty much the same as doing the same thing full time, since you need variation, rest, new approaches, variations in rythm, attitude, company, things to do, and new stimuli. Many things that are something on top of your everyday life, do not work alone without some such everyday basic level of work, hobbies, places to go, meeting different kinds of people etc.
