A normal person leading a full life can experience events related to death, family changes, job changes, health issues, and financial swings. Each experience is connected to the other experiences and is not isolated, making the impact on the person varied and complex.
A comprehensive study on Australian households, measuring the quality of wellbeing over 16 years found the following results:
Our level of wellbeing does not change much, with each event, even a catastrophic one, impacting us for a length of time, say a year or two, and then becoming normal to our minds, returning us to our previous levels of wellbeing.
This applies to boosts as well as the plunges.
Research shows an unexpected finding: happiness does not come from marriage, financial profits and other big events in your life, but it is available in the little things of daily life.
The events just become temporary surges or declines, with real happiness waiting for you everyday, in the present moment.
