Habits of Happiness

  1. 1. Habitsof Happiness By Courtney O’Connell @courtoconnell
  2. 2. Write down 3 things you are grateful for each day. Tip: You’re more likely to stick with it if you do this with a friend. Pick a friend and exchange your top 3 each day.
  3. 3. Meditate for 2 minutes, focusing on your breath going in and out. Tip: If you do this before bed every night you will also sleep better.
  4. 4. Write a (brief) e-mail, text or tweet each morning thanking or praising someone. Tip: Make a quick note each time you see someone do something praise/thank- worthy. Refer back to these notes each morning.
  5. 5. Exercise at least 20 minutes every day. Tip: Pick a time either first thing in the am or right after work to dedicate to exercise, and never miss a Monday.
  6. 6. End each work day writing down one thing that made you smile/laugh. Keep the post-it on your desk the whole next day until you write a new one. Tip: If you haven’t smiled yet today, cat videos are always a good prompt.
  7. 7. “Over the long term, money and power by themselves are like a two-legged stool — you can balance on them for a while, but eventually you’re going to topple over.” -Arianna Huffington
