SALT LAKE CITY — Who doesn’t want to be happy? It’s one of the basic rights Americans were guaranteed when this country was founded — “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

But how much of your happiness is due to your circumstances? What portion is genetically determined? Who are the happiest people in the world? And, if you’re not happy—why not?

Michelle King talks to three experts who lay out some key strategies for finding happiness. And you’ll meet several strong everyday people who’ve used those techniques to get through severe setbacks and sorrow. From dealing with the typical adversities life throws at you to combating unexpected tragedies, addiction and depression, you’ll be better prepared, once you’re armed with new tools and actually make the choice to be happy.
