Every morning send a friend, family member or co-worker an email to say thanks for something.
Might sound silly but it’s actually excellent advice on how to make your life better.
There’s tons and tons and tons of research showing that over time, this alone – one silly email a day – can make you happier.
Via Harvard professor Shawn Achor’s The Happiness Advantage:
This is why I often ask managers
to write an e-mail of praise or thanks to a friend, family member, or
colleague each morning before they start their day’s work—not just
because it contributes to their own happiness, but because it very
literally cements a relationship.
Here’s what’s really fascinating:( the opposite works too. Keep a record of bad things and you’ll make yourself increasingly miserable.
Patients with chronic pain were told to keep track of all the awful symptoms they experienced. They did — and felt dramatically worse:
The use of a symptom diary for 2 weeks, even in generally healthy subjects, results in increased recall of daily symptoms and increased perception of symptom severity.
Stop thinking you need more good stuff to happen to be happier — and just remind yourself of the good that’s already here.
