THE DETERMINANTS OF HAPPINESS
Genetic background
CIRCUMSTANCES :
material wealth, marriage,
employment status,
income, and possessions.
Benefits last for 2 weeks
(Hedonic Treadmill)
Oncewe acquire a new bonus,
status, or possession, we
experiencea noticeable increase
in pleasure. But soon (within a
couple of weeks),we adapt to
those new pleasures.
The thrill evaporates, and we
needto renew the experience
again and again to sustain the
feeling.
THE HEDONIC TREADMILL
HAPPINESS CAN BE A CULTIVATED ACTIVITY
40% OF OUR HAPPINESS
IS DETERMINED BY
INTENTIONAL ACTIVITY
INTENTIONALACTIVITY
Behaviors and practices that we voluntarily pursue
Such behaviors are strongly
resistant to the effects of adaptation :
• No Hedonic Treadmill
• Long lasting effect
