Happiness is the key to success in life. People who are happier live a stress-free life and it is found that happy people often have a longer lifespan. That being said, 89% of the people think that happiness can be controlled. This may be a fact but why control it when you can be publicly happy. A new survey has found that people who think happiness can be controlled and openly express their happiness are 32% happier than those who don’t.
The average happiness rating is 5.61 of people who think happiness is out of their control. On the contrary, people who think they can control their happiness have a happiness rating of 7.39. This is a very interesting revelation considering the two group of people.The reason for this case would be that being in control of happiness and feeling more dominant on their emotions may make people happy rather than the opposite. With the survey results, it was revealed that 89% of people can control happiness which means there are more people who are happier in their lives.
The survey was very detailed and had a lot of interesting revelations about human emotions. For further details, an infographic is posted below that summarizes the key pointers of the study.
