How are people finding happiness?

Well, it’s not through McDonald’s new mascot, named “Happy.” In fact, the mascot seems to be scaring kids.

And it’s not by playing the song “Happy” in Iran, where you can reportedly get arrested, according to CNN.

Here are a few ways people are finding happiness in our modern world.

Family time

Business Insider posted seven different ways people make choices that make them happy. The choices included exercising, spending time outside and choosing to spend time with their family.

“So, bury the hatchet with your brother-in-law and focus on your parents, children, or siblings if you want to be happier,” Business Insider reported. “Happy people might not always want to, but they find at least a few minutes every day (often much more) to do things to improve their family relationships.”

Greek life

Vox’s Libby Nelson reported on Wednesday that fraternity brothers have happier lives after their college years end, according to a Gallup poll that offered a look into what makes a happy post-college life.

Even as the study looked into race, gender and background, the results were the same for these kind of students, Nelson wrote. And the type of school — public or private — didn’t matter, either.
