In terms of happiness and well-being, various philosophies and perspectives may exist, including medicine, psychosomatic medicine, integrative medicine (IM), Hinohara-ism, and so on. Meaningful concepts can be found in Robert Waldinger, Simone Weil, John Tarrant, and Shigeaki Hinohara. Several keywords leading to happiness would be time, life, attention, caution, truth, love, meditation, mindfulness, human relationships, concentration, and others. The Five Facets of Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ) has been useful for evaluating worry and anxiety in response to social problems, associated with item response theory (IRT) analyses. Hinohara-ism can present adequate missions, themes, and goals for obtaining happiness and well-being for everyone.
