The Sims 4: How to Get Happy

Happy – The Sims 4

The Sims 4 introduced emotions that help your sims come alive even more. They’ll be affected by the activities they perform, conversations they have, and what they surround themselves with. Happiness is more than just having your moods fulfilled, though. You’ll want to have a lot of positive moodlets to offset any negative ones your sim may come across.

So, basically, strive to do positive things to keep your sim in this state of mind. Let them watch a fun movie, spend time with loved ones, get promotions, get great sleep, eat great food, and everything else you think might be positive for them. Keep in mind that a sim’s traits will also dictate what makes them happy. For example, a loner sim won’t be happy if they’re around a lot of people. On the flip side, bros love spending time surrounded by fellow bros. Situations like these happen a lot, ensuring your sim won’t have the same experience as another with different traits.


Objects also help with increasing happiness. Wind chimes provide a beautiful tone, awesome music will make your sim bump, comfortable furniture keeps their butt happy, and so many more objects can help increase your sim’s mood until they reach the happy emotion.

Once your sim is happy, you’ll get the special interaction options of “Brighten Day” and “Heartfelt Compliment.” And, of course, if they reach a crazy amount of green moodlets, they’ll burst into Very Happy territory. Because this is such a basic emotion, really, it’ll be easy for your sim to slip into other emotions if there’s any decor around that will inch them towards it. But hey, anything is better than your sim being sad, right?
