Researchers from Varna University of Management (Varna, Bulgaria) conducted an experiment and established which factors provide a person with a feeling of happiness. It turned out that the external environment does not have a significant impact on whether a person is happy or not. It's all about the genes
To explain the physiological nature of happiness, scientists studied the work of genes and found that they produce anandamide, a substance that can both reduce pain and increase and prolong positive emotions, turning them into a feeling of satisfaction with their lives.
Scientists have not found out any significant influence of such indicators as income level, the disposition of private life, the political situation in the country and other factors.
Thus, the researchers managed to make an unusual conclusion: the feeling of happiness is the product of the work of genes.
It was also surprising that the distribution density of happy people was the highest in the countries of Latin America, where there is a low standard of living, an unstable political situation and a high level of crime. However, it is thanks to the work of the genes that the inhabitants of these countries feel full satisfaction.
