5: Supremely Happy
Your life is a delight! You've found the key to your happiness. Be it family, friends, love, money, success, creative outlet or all the above - you've got IT. You have the life you want or have learned to love the life you have. You have good health, good friends and not many worries. Either that or you're just not bothered by things. In any case, it's great to be you! Share your happiness with others and help them with advice - not many can say the same as you!
4: Definitely Happy
You are happy! You have a great life that you love, and it's probably full of people that love you and appreciate you, perhaps you have great health, sleep well and have lots of money - or you've learned to accept what you can't change and are feeling happy no matter what. Keep being the way you are, it's wonderful to know there are happy people out there. You may have a few problems like everyone else, but you don't let them stand in the way of your personal sense of happiness.
3: Quite Happy
You are not unhappy or even indifferent. You are pretty pleased with your life. You are mostly comfortable, mostly unworried about the big things. That said, it's pretty easy to tile the scale and make your good day go bad. Your happiness is real but brittle, it can be shattered by events and easily taken away. Remember, true happiness is inside, no matter what happens on the outside. Find more balance inside with the amount of happiness you have, keep striving towards goals, take care of your health and sleep and go out and be social at least once a week - you'll take that little happiness hill and make it a mountain.
2: Not Happy Nor Sad
You haven't felt really happy in quite some time. Mostly you just feel numb. You go through life, enjoying little things, suffering others, and they seem to culminate in an absolute zero. You wouldn't call yourself happy, but when people ask if you're sad or depressed that doesn't sound right either. Mostly you may just be bored. Perhaps you need a big change in your life to shake the dust off a bit and experience more highs (and lows) in your life. That said, you may like being like this, and it's your choice. Remember however that this situation can easily become worse and slide into full unhappiness, so it's a better bet to inch towards happiness a little every day. Do something new, learn something new, take some chances - it'll be worth it.
1: Unhappy
Oh my, it seems you are unhappy. What a shame. Sorry to say, many are feeling the same these days, and the reasons can be many - worries about money or health or physical appearance. Bad health, too much pressure and poor sleep - all these factors as well as little time spent being social usually culminate in unhappiness. Sometimes it's a bad relationship or a bad temporary situation, but more often than not it's a life situation that we have convinced ourselves we can live with, or feel it's too much effort. It's hard to make changes to your life, but when you're feeling unhappy, you have little to lose. Make some big changes, learn something new like a skill or a language, sleep more, eat right and consult a doctor often. In addition, work on your relationship, visit more friends and family - and you'll see an increase in your happiness levels. Remember, it can always be chemical as well, so consult a doctor regarding any signs of clinical depression.
