Health and happiness go hand in hand

Research suggests that, on average, 50% of people’s general level of happiness is determined by genetics. However, 40% is under people’s control, and the remaining 10% depends on the circumstances. Staying connected, performing regular acts of kindness, finding your inner child, investing in experiences, spending time with people who make you feel good, and breaking up your routine, are a few ways to boost your outlook and give your mental and physical health a lift.
