Research into what makes people feel happy has led renowned professor, Dr Todd Kashdan, to produce an equation called the Feel Good Formula.
In it, he identifies six factors which, when put together in the right combination, make a happy soul.
The factors are: Live in the moment (M), be curious (C), do something you love (L), think of others (T), nurture relationships (N), and take care of you body (B).
The winning formula is Feeling Good = (Mx16 + Cx1 + Lx2) + (Tx5 + Nx2 + Bx33).
Dr Kashdan reviewed the results of nationwide research carried out into how Brits truly feel, inside and out.
Dr Kashdan, author of â€˜Curious? Discover the Missing Ingredient to a Fulfilling Lifeâ€™ drew upon his years of experience to analyse the research.
