Happiness and energy levels boosted


Have you ever had one of those “everything’s going wrong” days? Of course you have, everyone does. Apparently we have on average, three times more positive than negative experiences, but because of the way our brains are wired, we tend to give more weight to the negative ones, so they’re the ones we remember most. Plus, our brains get “habituated” to the positive ones, meaning your background level of positive experiences just becomes your “norm” and you need more of them to get a happy buzz.

So now for the good news. Recent research shows that simply talking about your positive experiences makes you happier. Lambert and colleagues found that when people shared their positive experiences with a supportive person, their life satisfaction, happiness, and energy levels increased.

Tip for the day: boost your happiness and energy levels by sharing your joy!
