Our team has performed a study on how well people can control their happiness. Or at least, how much they feel like it can be controlled. The study was performed by analyzing responses from a survey we hosted.
In total, 1,155 responses were recorded, from 23 December 2019 to 19 June 2020.
Based on the study results, we found a clear correlation between feeling in control of your happiness and actually feeling happy. Which results in the following lesson:
If you’re currently unhappy, try to find areas where you can be in control of your happiness. Then focus on improving those areas. Based on the survey results, you are more inclined to feel happy when you’re in control of these areas in your life.
