We should all be really happy!!!!

I don't know if happiness is genetic or not, but something is for sure there are some people that are naturally more cheerful than others. As well, babies tend to be happier than adults (probably due to all the problems and concerns that we have in mind). Another interesting fact is that grandparents also tend to be happier than parents. It may be due to the fact that they have fewer responsabilities in life. 

Read these related articles and to the listening exercise later, and then give me your opinion about the issue:

  1. Nowadays, we are very worried about problems that make us feel bad and sad. We have many things to do during the day and this can make us feel stressed or annoyed. Is it worth to be sad or is it better to be happy? Let's talk about what is the best.

    On the one hand, adults are usually less happy than babies and grandparents, probably due to all the problems and concerns that they have in mind. These problems could be caring for their children, paying the mortgage of the house, the stress because of their jobs,.....They have many responsibilities in their lives and this is cause of their mood.

    On the other hand, babies and grandparents tend to be much happier than parents. When you see a baby you can see how happy he or she is, they are always smiling and laughing. The same happens with grandparents, they are happier than adults, probably because they don't have to work any more. It may be due to the fact that they have fewer responsabilities in life.

    From my point of view, we should all be really happy because it isn't worth to be sad. With a smile all is much easier. I think people are often worried because of disputes, exasperations, family fights, fights of friends.... and it isn't worth because if you are happy you will enjoy more your life. That is what I think!! ;)
