Wouldn’t life be easier if we were able to plug a GPS into the soul and navigate the way to happiness? How does a person get somewhere when they do not know where it is? According to the movie Happy written and directed by Roko Belic, genetics account for 50% of happiness; 40% from choices and 10% circumstances. That is an incredibly small percent for those people claiming their circumstances are making them unhappy.
What does all this mean? Well, a high happiness level in genetic coding means a strong start. Those last in line for the happy code should not despair since 40% of your happiness is determined by choices. Your ability to make better choices increases the level of happiness in life.
Here are three ways to get your happiness rolling:
1. Happiness begins with an attitude of gratitude. Make the choice to view your surrounding circumstances by being grateful for what you already have sets the wheels in motion.
2. The next time there is a choice to be made choose to plug into your happy code. By making your choices from a happier mindset, your life is sure to follow!
3. Choose things that evoke a positive response in your life such as donating clothes to charity, placing wild flowers in your room or a picture of your dream vacation.
These are excellent ways to boost the happiness quotient!
