Increase Your Happiness in 2 Minutes a Day

Before Christmas I was bedridden with the flu and unable to do anything except watch endless T.V.  I watched countless Sex and the City reruns, episodes of Hoarders (which made me feel like I actually am pretty organized), This is 40, the comedy which I actually found to actually be a little depressing, then I happened upon Oprah’s SuperSoul Sessions on the OWN Network and




You guys, please DVR the shows or watch the speakers online, INCREDIBLE. And






One speaker I fell in love with was Shawn Achor who spoke on The Life-Altering Power of a Positive Mind < – watch it now. Please.

I am a total believer in the power of positive thinking and found his research and points to be SO powerful. We can transform our lives at any time, with the power of our thoughts and the renewing of our minds and optimism is a daily spiritual practice.

Increase Your Happiness in a Daily 2 Minute Positive Habit

One of the biggest take aways I got from this session were simple ways we can increase our happiness in just two minutes a day. That’s all! Fast forward to about the 27 minute mark in the talk if you are short on time, but please go back and watch the whole thing when you can.

Here is my favorite 2 minute daily positive habit:

Take a moment to send a positive email or text, thanking or praising someone you know.  Like he says on the video, after doing it for 3 days you will be hooked. And maybe, just maybe you will start a ripple effect of happiness.

Thanks for letting me share this.

Here is my 2 minute positive email to all of you taking the time to read this sentence right now. I want you to know just how deeply I appreciate you taking your time to read my words and how much I appreciate your support. More than words can even express, THANK YOU!
