Happiness suffers from diminishing returns

According to the Washington Post, good things happening makes us happy. As more & more good things happen, additional good things happen don’t push us up the happiness slope as much as they used to. And worse, after reaching the peaks of happiness, smaller and smaller setbacks are capable of pushing us further down the happiness slope than they used to.

While I don’t think we can change the diminishing returns, we probably can change how we react to setbacks.
