## Something about free time and the secret of happiness. From my point of view there are two kinds of free time, but, firstly, let's define what is free time, I think that it is important because the meaning of free time can vary from person to person, so for me free time is "a period of time in which you don't need to do something". In essence, the kinds of free time that people could have refers to the amount of money they have. In simple words, we have free time but not money, at least not as much as we need to do things that we want, and on the other hand we have free time and as much money as we need to do things that we want. So, most people think that happiness can only be reached when there is strictly one condition, this is to have both free time and enough money (a lot of money), but this isn't true, from my point of view, people don't think about happiness constantly. What I mean is that happiness is an answer to a question, this question can be: How I am feeling now? This question may have a lot of answers, but to refer to the current context, we can suppose that only two answers are possible, these are "I feel happy or I feel sad", in both cases we need to make the question to know how we are feeling, so, I think that the best way to avoid situations in which we feel sad, I mean situations which this is our answer, we only need to not make the question. Why do we usually ask that question?, because we have a lot of free time, and this kind of free time comes frequently with little money, and the answer usually is "I feel so sad", so one trick to avoid this kind of feeling or get depressed, is not asking that question, and the best way to avoid that is being busy all the time. If we don't have free time, we don't have time to ask that question (How do I feel?) on less that you have a lot of money to do things that you like the best you can do is keep you busy. So maybe what I said before isn't the secret of happiness but at least that is a way to av

The last part is: So maybe what I said before isn't the secret of happiness but at least that is a way to avoid feeling sad or getting depressed.
