So what’s making you miserable? Is it your boss or that dead-end job? A fight with your partner? The overwhelming number of obligations and demands that you just can’t meet?
What does this science tell us? That you shouldn’t feel bad if it seems that you catch the blues more often than others. It may simply be your hard wiring. It also lets us know that external factors - that boss, your relationship or dating woes - don’t hold as much sway as you think.
Most importantly, it tells us that we do have the ability to take control of our happiness by making adjustments to our thoughts, actions and behaviors.
