The Sims 4 Happy Emotion

How to Make Your Sims Very Happy

The Sims 4 - a Happy Sim
Very Happy

Happy and Very Happy Moods
Most of the Moodlets in The Sims 4 produce Happiness, which can lead your Sim to get Very Happy if they reach +8. Remember that +8 will get you to any 'Very' Emotion, and all of these stack with the Emotion you'll want. Sims who have the Cheerful Trait will get a Happiness boost at times. Here is how you can get your Sim Very Happy. Once Very Happy, you can be Very Focused, Energized, etc. very easily just by getting one Moodlet of that type of Emotion:

Skill/Career Ideal Moods
Happy is helpful with the Charisma Skill, since it boosts certain Social Interactions and leveling rate, but is not necessarily tied to the Skill like Confident, which increases the success of Interactions. Overall, Happy is a better state than Fine for boosting Skill gains and making your Sim successful. Happy/Very Happy boost Skill gains by 20%/40% respectively. It's also 'safe' since negative Emotions have to break through your cumulative Happy moodlets to bring the Sim down.

Beautifully Decorated Moodlets

A guide to the +Happy Decorated Moodlets in The Sims 4. Includes the break points where you get to +2 happy and the wonderful +3 Beautifully Decorated moodlet.

How to Get Very Happy

  • Decorations in the room +1-3 based on the total score
  • Having a good meal - +1-3
  • Having high Needs - +1/2
  • Listening to Music from a Radio (click the Radio then do other things) - +1
  • Healthy Green Tea - +2
  • Fresh Maker Handiness Upgrade on Fridge, Bidet on Toilet, Auto Soap Dispenser on Sink - all +1 when used

These are just some of the things that can make a Sim Happy, though there are surely more to be found in the game. Also read the main Emotions Guide to learn how Emotions work - Emotional Auras, what determines the main Emotion, and how to control your Sim's mood at all times.

this is me when i am in game
Grini am so happy
Happy is actually a really difficult moodlet to get and keep, for instance for certain jobs that have happy as their best mood. (This might actually be a Mod job, but still applies!) Happy moodlet disappears if any kind of other moodlet pops up. I've found the best way is to go for a swim. The moodlet is called A Relaxing Swim and lasts 4 hours. Then just try to avoid all other inspiring/confident/negative/playful items or activities right before they go to work. You can also gamble with the bubble blower, if you've found out which flavour makes them initially happy and don't let them over-do it Laugh else they go dazed/asleep/playful/flirty and so on.
List of what emotion each bubble blower flavor gives sims Click. Happy is one of the easiest emotions in my opinion. Simply take a bath with soak lavender flavor and use incense at the same time or a massage etc and your sim will have a happy moodlet of +2 that lasts for 24hrs. Having a deep conversation with another sim, complimenting their outfit...many socials also give happy moodlets usually of 4 hr duration. Other emotions do over-ride the happy emotion though so in that way perhaps staying happy is the issue, but like you say, simply avoid anything that adds a different emotions buff.

Hey carl is the moodlets for enviorment score decor timed now my sim got environment score at random times for only 4 hours
