In this book, Mr. Achor talks about how putting positivity first improves intelligence, creativity, productivity and energy. He calls this the Happiness Advantage and during a recent TED talk he outlined a simple process designed to achieve results in 21 days.
Every day list three things you’re grateful for, journal on a positive experience that occurred in the last 24 hours, exercise, meditate, and perform an act of kindness such as sending a positive email praising or thanking someone in your social, family or work network.
I can attest to most of the suggestions as I regularly journal and most days there is a lot of gratitude. I also exercise gently every morning, and occasionally meditate. I am now committing to daily meditation and instituting a practice of daily kindness.
It’s all so easy to effect a change toward a better, more focused brain! For more information, I recommend the TED talk (He’s an entertaining speaker!) and/or purchasing his book.
