Answer
Hello Mahreen

People differ in what makes them happy. And happiness is often more internal than external, that is, people either are or are not generally happy, and the environment has little effect on them.

I suggest you just keep trying different activities and pursuits, to see what, if anything, gives you the results you want. It may be reading, exercising, meditating, game-playing, talking, listening, etc.  And if you find something that seems to work, expect it to change a little over the years, as we ourselves change.

I hope those comments will help a little, and I thank you for asking us.
