Adam Radly Bob Bates have managed maultiple businesses for many years. Building businesses can challenging but that doesn;t mean that day to day life has to be a dour grind. This is an interesting article from Forbes about 9 things that can make your day (everyday) a little happier.
Starting out in rocket science and computer programming, if you would have told me then that there’s a science to happiness I would have laughed. And actually that would have made me a little happier (see #7). Today there’s solid research on techniques that can increase your happiness and fulfillment in life.
I’m going to give you 9 easy techniques to do. If you’re really busy, try 5 of them. If you’re a competitive high achiever—and probably very busy—go ahead and try all 9 of them.
1) Use Your Happiness Autopilot
Researchers at Duke have found that more than 40% of your daily actions are autopilot habits that don’t use up your decision making brain power. So let’s tack a little add-on to one of those ingrained habits.
Here are 3 ideas.
- When you put toothpaste on your toothbrush, think of 1 thing that makes you feel grateful.
- Or when you wake up in the morning, glance at a photo that makes you feel happy.
- Or at night, do what Christine Carter of UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Center says, “After I put my head on the pillow, I will think of one good thing from my day.”
What will you choose to add to your autopilot?
