How amenable to reductionism is human satisfaction with life?

In the sense of being able to optimize many pieces separately. For instance, if you just improve the quality of the ‘music’ slot, and the ‘restaurant food’ slot and so on, do you get a lot of the value, or would you do much better if you considered all the parts together, because for instance the human gets much value from the music and the food being part of a meaningful narrative, whatever that is?
