What are the five key steps that we can take each day to increase our experience of happiness? 1) Bring gratitude to mind: Write down three NEW things that you are grateful for each day 2) Journal: About a positive experience you’ve had recently for two minutes once a day 3) Exercise: Engage in 15 minutes of mindful cardio activity 4) Meditate: Watch your breath go in and out for two minutes a day and 5) Engage in a random, conscious act of kindness: Write a two-minute positive email thanking a friend or colleague, or compliment someone you admire on social media Do these steps for 21 days, and you will begin to see a lasting shift in your mindset towards more positivity.
