This article in The Week offers a few quick ways to boost your happiness. At the end of the article (which gives more detail on why and how this works), it sums them up thus:
Here’s what brain research says will make you happy:
1. Ask “what am I grateful for?” No answers? Doesn’t matter. Just searching helps.
2. Label those negative emotions. Give it a name and your brain isn’t so bothered by it.
3. Decide. Go for “good enough” instead of “best decision ever made on Earth.”
4. Hugs, hugs, hugs. Don’t text — touch.
Are there mood-boosters we could add to this list? For me, I would add (1) Go for a walk and (2) Put on cheerful music. What suggestions do others have?
