What is happiness? If you ask several people what makes them happy, you'll get a wide variety of answers. But everyone seems to know what makes them happy and what does not. Researchers have been trying to narrow the definition of happiness for some time. One thing that researchers have appeared to discover is that about 50% of a person's capacity for happiness is genetically predetermined. So, some folks start out with an advantage. But researchers also found that a person's health is one of the strongest predictors of happiness. Moreover, a person's perception of his/her good health affects happiness, and not necessarily those medical assessment tests. Happiness declines when poor health significantly affects a person's daily living activities such as independence, self-image, personal relationships, and ability to work and conduct basic activities. Chronic pain or other disabilities can have a long lasting impact on happiness.
Good health is key to maintaining happiness. And, good health is maintained by good nutrition, exercise, and social contacts. So stay healthy and you'll stay happy!
