A lot, according to a booming ﬁeld of research into our elusive search for joy. Many studies suggest that our own thoughts and behaviors strongly affect our level of contentment. One longtime researcher estimates that we can actually control about 40 percent of our happiness. Here we've gathered the latest on happiness, along with tips for getting and staying happy no matter your circumstances. The Dish on Bliss V i c i n i t y Magazine's Happiness consists of two parts: e cognitive, which focuses on how satisﬁed you are and whether you feel you're working toward your goals, and the aﬀective, which centers on how often you feel positive rather than negative emotions. Your happiness is also deﬁned by your "set point," a sort of default level you return to no matter what happens, good or bad. So whether you suﬀer a loss or win the lottery, you will eventually be drawn back to your set point. e good news? You can readjust your set point by changing your attitude (to one of gratitude, for example) and taking speciﬁc steps (see Tipping the Happiness Scale). e latest research reveals that happiness is tied strongly to both meaningful conversation and the well-being of loved ones. For example, people who engage in deep discussions rather than small talk are more likely to be happy, no matter what their personality type.

Your present circumstances are only temporary. • Take advantage of free and low-cost entertainment. Check out programs at the local library, attend municipal summer concerts, or get together with family and friends for potluck dinners. • Grow your own food. Starting a vegetable garden, for instance, can save you money and provide a fun-ﬁlled family activity. • Catch up on your reading. Curling up with a great book can be therapeutic by granting you a reprieve from your troubles. • Give back to others. If you can't donate money, volunteer your time and talents instead. You'll reap the rewards of helping others… one of which is happiness. Sponsorship opportunities to inform the public of unique services or procedures.
