Why subscribe to 40% happier?

Sometimes our brain plays tricks on us.

In fact, we’re not very good at making ourselves happy. Many times, what we think will make us happy, does not – and what we think won’t make us happy, surprises us by bringing more satisfaction in our life. Science has been devoting its attention to this topic, out of which was developed the field of positive psychology, where the word “positive” does not mean that one should convince oneself that everything is going well. “Positive” means here “proven by science to improve quality of life”.

Research suggests there is real room for manoeuvre on which we can act. Of course, genetics, the environment and external conditions have an impact on the way we actually feel.

40% is the proportion on which we can act, with intention-setting and perseverance, in order to live a more satisfying life.
