Train Your Brain to Be Positive in 21 Days

If you’re reaching for a certain goal and think that that will make you happy, you need to reorder your priorities according to Shawn Achor. First you must me happy, then you’ll work better, create more, and have more energy. When you’re happy, Dopamine floods your brain to make you happier and it turns on the learning centers in your brain. When you find a way to become positive in the present, you can adapt to the world in a different way – free from stress of the reward only from success. Research on neuroplasticity—the ability of the brain to change even in adulthood—reveals that as you develop new habits, you rewire the brain.

Engaging in five brief positive exercises every day for as little as twenty one days can have a lasting impact:

3 Gratitudes. Write a sentence or two on three things that you are grateful for.
Random act of kindness: Write a positive message to someone in your social support circle.
Meditate/breath for two minutes.
Exercise for 10 minutes.
Journaling: Take two minutes to describe in a journal the most meaningful experience of the past 24 hours.
These simple steps have been proven to improve one’s outlook on life. Do this for 21 days and you can significantly reprogram your happy quotient.
