The Happiness Pie Chart, first published in 2005, states that 50% of our happiness is defined by our genes, 40% by our activities and 10% by our life circumstances.

Recent studies on what determines happiness prove that it is possible to take deliberate steps to control our happiness, and stay happier in life. Our genes, life circumstances and our activities(and choices) in life aren't isolated factors but can influence each other.
