What determines your Happiness?

40% of our happiness is determined by our state of mind.

According to researcher Sonja Lyubomirsky, our happiness is determined:

– 50% by genetics
– 10% by our circumstances
– 40% by our internal state of mind

Regardless of our circumstances, we do have the power to become happy.

Here is how I started taking control of the 40%:

About 12 years ago, after watching the TEDx “The Happiness Advantage” I decided to be intentional to notice the daily things that I was thankful for.

I started ending my days by reflecting on three things that I was thankful for that happened that day.

– Found a parking spot
– Got to my appointment on time
– The lady at the checking counter smiled

Simple things, but after a few weeks I noticed a reduced focus on what was not working in my life.

My husband was the first to say it. 🙂

Today, I see that I’m more focused on what works than on what doesn’t work.

If life feels hard
If you feel frustrated
If you feel out of control

I would suggest watching The Happiness Advantage TEDx -the link is below:

It might be just the thing to get you started on a journey to a happier life.
