Every day, people make life-choices that, ideally, increase their evolutionary fitness – the chances of survival and successful reproduction – and lead to positive feelings of fulfillment, accomplishment, and happiness. Sometimes, however, individuals experience quite the opposite: feelings of sadness caused by fitness-decreasing choices. Fortunately, many advancements in evolutionary theory and evolutionary psychology have increased humans’ capacity as a species to address the question of how to live a life characterized by more positive than negative feelings.
