These figures may surprise you, they surprised me! Only 10% of our happiness levels are influenced by life circumstances. Around 50% is genetic and the remaining 40% is down to us and what we do. To flip it, you could be 40% happier than you may be now if you proactively improved your experiences through learning or doing activities which bring fun and enjoyment into your life. Just goes to show that the perfect job, the perfect relationship, or being a perfect size 10 will not make you as happy as you may at first believe. Happiness comes inside us- from helping others, playing in the park, learning a new subject or hobby. So, get creative and enjoy a new you!
