I am reading Sonja Lyubomirsky’s book The How of Happiness. Sonja believes that our individual level of happiness springs from three primary sources: 1) A natural “Set Point” that you are born with (50%), 2) Life Circumstances (10%), and 3) Intentional Activity (40%).
Of these three, the one area that we have the most power to change is the last one: our behavior.
