Switching to other places such as visiting local temples, learning yogas or playing with children are some of the best routs where money is not involved to that extent but pleasure can be derived. The only thing is to look out for such hobbies and you are surely to get one costing you not a single amount of money but by doing so, we would get immense pleasure.
Believe in the existence of God the super power.

Even this challenging situation would ease
How to be happy as the author has questioned? I like to listen to RJ Naved of Radio Mirchi. How to be happy is not a secret matter. Real happiness I get when I help someone who is in deep trouble or problem and my help might help him to come out of that situation. I can't express it in words, my soul feels happiness when I see smile on his face.
Like this different people will have different hobbies and they may require or may not require money.
Knowledge is power.
