First of all, here’s the formula of happiness  😉

happiness-equation

for more details have a look at this article 

A mathematical equation to predict how self-reported happiness depends on past events. Happiness depends not on how well things are going, but whether things are going better or worse than expected.

Happiness depends on safe choices (certain rewards, CR), expectations associated with risky choices (expected value, EV), and whether the outcomes of risky choices were better or worse than expected. This final variable is called a reward prediction error (RPE), the difference between the experienced outcome and the expectation. The neurotransmitter dopamine is thought to represent these signals which might explain how people learn about rewards (if you get more than you expected, next time you should expect more)

Another study of over 70 years found out what keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life! If you think it’s fame and money, you’re not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you’re mistaken. As the director of 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a fulfilling, long life.

THE DAY OF HAPPINESS PROJECT

The Day of Happiness Project aligns its efforts based on the United Nations resolution proclaiming March 20th as The International Day of Happiness and which calls for countries to approach public policies in ways that improve the well-being of all people through economic, social, and environmental development.

The UN Secretary-General has said, “The pursuit of happiness lies at the core of human endeavors. People in the world aspire to lead happy and fulfilling lives free from fear and want, and in harmony with nature.”

Among our many activities promoting happiness, we are providing much needed information such as The Way to Happiness® which is known the world over as a common-sense, non-religious guide to better living that inspires greater tolerance and understanding between families, friends and communities.

Wherever this booklet has been broadly distributed, the result has typically been reduced conflict, reduced crime and increased happiness. The Way to Happiness holds the Guinness Book of World Records’ mark as “the most translated book on earth.” In 111 languages, over 100 million copies of The Way to Happiness have been distributed in 205 countries and territories.
