It is scientifically proven
If you take 30 seconds right now and write down 5 things you are grateful for, it will positively effect your happiness over the next 24hrs!
If you do that same exercise for 21 consecutive days, your base line happiness is positively effected for the next 6 months!
Now you may be thinking..."Suchie, what rinky dink company or University preformed this study?" The following word should pretty much clear up all doubt-> HARVARD! Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage, magna cum laude Harvard graduate and Harvard Head Teaching Fellow; founded Good Think Inc in 2007 to bridge the gap between evidence-based academic research and the real world.
Yes, happiness is a choice. What Good Think Inc suggests is that there are daily activities we can preform to raise our base line level of happiness. Well Mr. Achor...Challenge accepted!
Every morning for the next 21 days, I will write down 5 things I am grateful for. My journal and pen will wait on my night stand. I will tweet my daily gratitudes every morning and post them to the blog at night. (ps...if you are not following me on twitter yet..."Suchielove") To watch Shawn speaking about the Science of Happiness and gratitude, click here
