Sixty percent of happiness depends on your DNA and life circumstances, but what you think and do affect the other 40 percent—sweet news for your state of mind.
So take two weeks and these joy-inducing tips. You’ll be amazed at what one small tweak a day can do. The proof is in the positivity!
BLISS BOOSTER: Whatever you need—a bottle of wine, new tyres, fruit and veg—don’t drive miles out of your way to get it at a better price. Today, go to your local store and ask for the shopkeeper’s recommendation. Then snag it, even if it isn’t the exact thing you had in mind or the least expensive.
PLEASURE PAYOFF: People who search for only the best, even if they find it, are less happy than those who opt for something that’s good enough, research suggests. It might seem counterintuitive, but learning that good enough often is good enough buys you time to devote to more meaningful things, like family. When you buy locally, you also bond with someone in your community, and relationships are a primary source of joy. That makes it a twofer, happinesswise.
