Start Everyday Happy, With A Happy List
Start everyday happy by writing a “happy list!” You’ll be more happy, content, and less stressed…Really!
The survey asked people to rate their stress levels, then write a short essay before trying to solve a task. Most people wrote about subjects that struck a cord with them personally like music, family or friends. A few of the respondents wrote about things that were not so personal.
Writing a self-affirming essay made even the most stressed-out people perform better on the problem-solving test. The research found that getting in a positive mindset can help reduce stress and encourage creativity.
