However, according to various world religions, it is associated with god and the afterlife.

The philosophy of happiness dates back to antiquity. It has been seen since the time of Socrates. It was associated with an understanding of human nature, as well as the relationship of man with what surrounds him and in harmony with the forces of nature.

• Act in harmony with nature. According to Aristotle, only man deserves happiness if he acts in accordance with what nature has called him to do. For a person, this is thinking or politics, so the greatest satisfaction can be achieved by being a philosopher or statesman;

• Satisfaction of physiological needs. Aristotle believed that for a feeling of happiness it is necessary to fulfill the basic conditions: health, the presence of offspring, good nutrition;

• Indifference and distance. According to the Stoics, true happiness can only be achieved through peace of mind. It cannot be made dependent on external events: neither from winning the lottery, nor from unpleasant experiences. It depends only on the inner: reason, morality and virtue;

• Pleasure. Epicurus' recipe for happiness is a life full of pleasures, but only those that are wisely chosen;

• Contact with God. Thomas Aquinas believed that happiness can be achieved through knowledge of God, participation in his work, as well as the vision of salvation and eternal life;

• Giving up your desires. According to Buddhism, you can never fully satisfy your needs, so the only way to be happy is to get rid of them completely.
