Unfolding on the Mat
Expanded Content and Thoughtful Guidance
Ready for some happiness advice? For my next two podcasts, I'm drawing on some of the gems I found in this issue of TIME Magazine.
One of the articles, titled 14 Ways to be a Happier Person, gives some great thoughts on how to infuse your day with more fun and joy.
My favorite part is that it mentions something like what I have recommended to my clients: A Happiness Journal. Making daily entries into a book that records the moments you stopped to notice, savor, and enjoy something creates a total mind-shift towards the positive. This gets your happy juices flowing, which can push back at the blues and give you a genuine sense of more life satisfaction and joy.
Remember--your brain is like Teflon to the positive and Velcro with the negative. It's just the way we're made! We have to stop and savor for a full 15 seconds to give our brains a chance to remember a sweet encounter.
So grab an empty notebook and title it "Moments to Savor." Get your entries started today! You will live a longer, healthier, and happier life.
May your life be full of moments to savor, and may you take the time to do so each day.
