There are probably a dozen things that can sap your strength in a given day. Maybe more. But Karol Nickell with Live Happy Magazine says they don’t have to sap your happiness.
About 50% of our happiness is based on genetics. About 10% of our happiness has to do with environment. So if you have a financially sound environment – great – you’ll be happier. If you don’t, that’s not going to add to your happiness mindset. However, you have another 40% left over – & that 40% is a lot about personal choice. I choose to be happy, that’s number one. I choose to do happy things, that’s number two. I choose to have people around me that are happy, number three. These are all choices we can make every day.
Karol also says there’s an obvious difference between short term happiness & long term joy, but faith is a cornerstone for both. & studies show we grow increasingly happier as we age. More at LiveHappy.com.
