21 day Happiness Challenge!

Thanks to theficklepen for posting this entry. I’m going to try and take on this challenge.

get happy 5 simple activities repeated for 21 days straight will rewire our brains for a lasting, more positive outlook according to research by Shawn Achor .

Wanna try it out with me?

  1. Gratitude – think of three things for which you’re grateful, with a new list each day
  2. Journaling – write one positive thing that happened today to allow your brain to relive it (there’s an idea for a blog post!)

  3. Exercise – keeps the brain healthier than Sudoku; remember any activity’s better than nothing!

  4. Meditation – even a few minutes daily improves focus and compassion for ourselves and each other (have you seen the free Take 10 My Headspace app?)

  5. Random acts of kindness – write one person a quick note with a few encouraging words

Thanks to Shawn Achor’s TED talk and My Coaching Corner for the inspiration! To learn more about Shawn’s positive psychology, check out Good Think…
