Last night I watched a Ted Talk on Positive Psychology delivered by Shawn Achor.
I was struck by the bit at the end, the five things you can do for twenty-one days to increase your positivity.
(It's not that I'm relentlessly negative, far from it, but like anyone, I could always take being MOAR positive.)
So the five things are:
- Start each morning with an outward expression of three new things for which you are grateful that happened over the last 24 hours
- Keep a journal
- Exercise regularly
- Practice meditation
- Commit to doing random acts of kindness. - one email of gratitude a day.
