If you're not happy, you can practice activities to become happier. According to researcher Sonja Lyubomirsky, author of The How of Happiness, 50% of happiness is our genetic set point – no changing that – and another 10% is due to our life circumstances. A whopping 40%, however, is under our own control that we can shape with intentional activity.

Do you have fun and pleasure in your life? Something you look forward to? Gets rid of stress? Gives you joy and focus? Gets your mind off your troubles? If you do, you probably have a hobby! A very busy person once told me she was learning to play the violin in the evening to wind down, instead of having a drink and watching TV. That hobby suited her well, because she could do it on her own time and it fit her interest and personality.
