Tuesday Tips – Happiness!

The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor

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.
