Happiness can be a numbers game, according to Happify.com., a site that emphasizes the science behind the study of happiness. There are ways to quantify what drives our moods and wellness. So let’s start counting!
$75,000: This annual salary level is the sweet spot for happiness - making more doesn’t make a huge difference in mood levels.
33, 55 and the 70s: The ages at which people report that they are the happiest. So there are good times yet to come!
10: The number of friends it takes to lift happiness levels.
6-7: The number of hours a day spent socializing with friends and family to keep a smile on your face.
5: The number of positive interactions happy couples experience per every negative one.
2-3: The number of times happy couples have sex on a weekly basis.

Clearly, happiness is not just for the young or the wealthy, But it comes easier for those who invest in meaningful relationships with friends, family and partners.
