The Science of Happiness

In this week’s blog I’m posting a video of an interview with one of the top experts on the Science of Happiness, Sonja Lyubomirsky.

Happiness is something that most people think they have little control over. In fact it turns out that about 50% of happiness is genetically determined, 10% depend on life circumstances, which leaves approx 40% of factors that are within your control.

Some think that more money, better or bigger home, nicer clothes will give them more happiness, but as you probably already know, this happiness doesn’t last.

Being kind to others, connecting socially, having a good support system are all much better ways to find lasting happiness.
