Happiness by the Numbers

There must be an easier way! (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences)

According to researchers from University College London, the above formula can be used to calculate happiness. They recently published this formula in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and described its gist like this: “Happiness spikes when we win and our expectations are low—but that happiness gradually fades over time.”

This is all well-and-good, of course, but I do have one major problem that may impede my own happiness: I suck at math!

Anyone have a calculator I can borrow?
