Feel Your Best Tip: How to Feel Good
6/26/17 — Happiness researcher and author Shawn Achor says we can start to rewire our brains, feel happier, and ultimately be more successful if we do the following five things every day, for 21 days in a row (below video).
Gratitude – write three things you’re grateful for; three new things daily
Journal – write about one positive experience daily
Perform random acts of kindness – reach out and praise one person daily
“Your brain at positive performs significantly better than it does at negative, neutral, or stressed,” he says. “Your intelligence rises, your creativity rises, your energy levels rise.”
Achor says these activities create a “happiness advantage.” In short, he says that when we feel better, we’re more productive, resilient, and adaptable; all outcomes improve when we’re in a good place.
