3rd Principle of Happiness At Work:

• Happiness can be learned.

Even though we are each born with a 'set point' for happiness, with some of us inclined towards feeling miserable and others of us tending to irrepressible cheerfulness, there is a great deal that all of us can do to make lasting improvements in our own happiness.

We now know that our brains remain plastic and capable of great learning for the whole of our lives, and not just when we are young.

And our best learning comes from repeated practice that forges in the deep neural pathways in our brains that make doing anything come to feel easy and natural.
