“We tend to define our lives by the pursuit of happiness. Will my job make me happy? Will my partner make me happy? If I have more money, will this make me happy?”
But we fail to realise that happiness is not some nirvana we can only access when all our desires fall into place. Neuroscience dictates that 40% of our personal happiness is absolutely in our control, 10% is due to personal circumstance and 50% is in our genes.
The creators of the ‘Action for Happiness’ movement, along with the founders of behavioural change website ‘Do Something Different’ passionately believe in this research and want to teach others how to take this control into our own hands.
