DO you feel happy? You will find life is so much fun when you are happy. The smile on your face will make you more charming (迷人的). You will have more friends. What if you are not so happy? Don't worry. Here are some tips on how to be a happy teenager!

No matter how happy you are, it’s normal (正常的) to feel angry or sad sometimes. Life is full of ups and downs. We can’t change the way life is, but we can do our best to change a bad situation (状况) into a good one. To help us do this, *it’s good to know some of the things that bring us happiness.

Your attitude towards life is important. How do you feel if you fail an exam? Maybe you think it’s unfair because you always study hard. Or, maybe you accept (接受) it.
