    By Shannon Polly - Have you ever tried speaking to a tough crowd? How about teaching positive psychology to engineers? Jocelyn Davis Jocelyn Davis has done just that at the University of Maryland for the last eight years. Davis was our recent speaker at the webinar series hosted by Positive Business DC. She and Kathryn Britton teach the required course, Managing Project Teams, to engineers becoming project managers. So she knows a tough audience. During the webinar, Davis shared an example that often moves her students. Imagine that you had a high performance automobile, and you ran it for…
  • Health Promotion or Disease Prevention: Which Do You Need?

    Marie-Josée Shaar
    8 Apr 2014 | 5:33 pm
    By Marie-Josée Shaar -   Many sources in the wellness industry erroneously treat the concepts of disease prevention and health promotion as if they were one and the same. Similarly, a lot of people think of health as the absence of illness, something to be detected via health risk assessments, instead of the high energy, clear focus, and joyful mood that come with good habits. That’s a big mistake, and not recognizing the inherent distinction between the two undoubtedly reduces our ability to implement our health intentions. Here’s why.

    By Kathryn Britton - When I was a little girl, my mother had a habit of saying, whenever anything frightening or uncomfortable happened, “Think of it as an adventure.” Nevada road – nobody in sight So getting stopped by the cops for speeding on our way from the Bronx to New Haven was an adventure. Moving from North Carolina to Idaho in 24 hours during a family crisis was an adventure.

  • Increasing Happiness: Invitation to Participate in a Research Study

    Gabriella Mee
    1 Apr 2014 | 11:47 am
    By Gabriella Mee - I am conducting a study based on positive psychology. Martin Seligman developed his positive psychology research around the idea that happiness is more than just the absence of suffering and that people can intentionally change their own levels of happiness. He began his interest in positive psychology when his young daughter made a comment that encouraged him to see things differently; she had declared that she had not whined once since she had vowed to give up whining on her fifth birthday. If she was capable of giving up whining, she reasoned, her father should be able…

    Every Wednesday is Tip Day, or List Day, or Quiz Day. This Wednesday: 8 tips for finding misplaced objects. Samuel Johnson wrote, “It is by studying little things that we attain the great art of having as little misery, and as much happiness as possible,” and I’m often struck by how much happiness I get from making improvements in small, seemingly trivial aspects of my life. And one of those aspects? Keeping track of my stuff. Not being able to find something is a minor challenge to happiness, of course — but it’s one of those minor things that can make me crazy. Today,…

    Further Secrets of Adulthood:   As I’ve been studying habits, and how we make or break habits, I’ve been struck by the fact that we should pay special attention to any habit that we try to hide.  The desire to prevent family or co-workers from acting as witnesses—from seeing what’s on the computer screen or knowing how much time or money is spent on a habit—shows that in some way, our actions don’t reflect our values. One way to attack a hidden bad habit—secret smoking, secret shopping, secret monitoring of an ex-sweetheart on Facebook—is to force it out into…

    “There is a charm, even for homely things, in perfect maintenance.” – Louis Auchincloss, The House of Five Talents Agree, disagree? I feel this very strongly myself, and I write about it quite a lot in The Happiness Project and Happier at Home. Well-made, suitable tools make work a joy; keeping things in their proper places makes a place seem more inviting; old, strong objects serving their purpose feel almost alive. When I was home in Kansas City recently, I used a particular small pan that my parents have had as long as I can remember. It made me so happy to see it! It was the…

    Post written by Peter G. James Sinclair. If there is one word of wisdom I can offer you today it’s this: stop comparing yourself to those around you. The days of keeping up with the Jones or the Smiths are dead and gone. Stop looking at the other guys car, because if you knew the truth of it all, you’d probably be glad to know that you don’t have to pay his monthly lease bill. I have seen it time and time again – especially in tough economic times – the shedding of top end vehicles and multi-million dollar mansions because the vehicles and properties were never owned by the…

In this article, I would like to share with you the specific steps that you can take to turn a stranger into a friend. The Right Environment You almost never make friends on the bus, or at a bank. The context is not appropriate, and that’s part of how friendship starts; you need an appropriate context. It’s much easier to make friends in yoga class, or a business community for example. These are environments where people go…

I remember reading about Sam Walton – the founder of the mighty WalMart chain. He would make it his habit to regularly visit his competition, and if he ever found one idea that they were doing well, he would immediately adapt it and roll it out into his stores. He was always seeking ways to improve his business. Adapt & Change This is how we should live our lives. Whenever we come across a better or a smarter way of doing…

Throughout the years I have received dozens of them in relation to my books, my poems, my musicals and my songs that I have personally created. And until recently there had been no literary agent or publisher who had ever accepted any of my book manuscripts and responded with the word YES. And even though that had been the case I still self-published thousands of books that were sold internationally, recorded numerous albums and continue to create new and exciting productions. WHY?

    I just nominated myself to be a speaker at the next TED Conference. The Theme is “Truth and Dare.” The application asked me to explain how my “Forgive To Win!” talk would fit into that theme. This is what I wrote:
  • Only The Mind Can Be Sick. Only The Mind Is In Need Of Healing.

    Walter Jacobson
    9 Apr 2014 | 8:08 pm
    The mind-body connection is much greater than most people appreciate. Our thoughts create our reality. Our thoughts dis-ease us. Our thoughts can heal us. Laughter isn’t the best medicine. Forgiveness, acceptance and love are.
  • Forgive Others Unconditionally and Without Exception

    Walter Jacobson
    9 Apr 2014 | 8:04 pm
    The true self-healing power of forgiveness requires that we put no conditions on our forgiveness and we make no exceptions. This means we forgive others regardless of whether or not they apologize or make amends or are nice to us. And we forgive everyone, rather than some and not others. We make no distinctions that some behaviors are unforgivable or that some people don’t deserve to be forgiven. We forgive everyone unconditionally without exception for our own peace of mind.

    We tend to take our loved ones for granted. We don’t treat them as well as we should. We are oftentimes angry and irritable with them. We are oftentimes selfish, rude, sarcastic and unloving. Best we stop behaving in these ways. Best we cherish them, nurture, them, support them and express our love to them in words, in deeds, in hugs.

    Enjoy this guest post from LOA coach Nancy Barry-Jansson on what sleep has to do with manifesting: What’s the connection between sleeping and success? You might be surprised! It is a well-known spiritual teaching that anything that exists in physical form, including your success in life, started first as an idea. When the idea is contemplated and the imagination takes hold, the thought begins to attract vibrationally similar thoughts and before you know it the idea begins to take shape. Brain science tells us that our mind does not know the difference between reality and imagined past,…
  • The Attachment Test

    Good Vibe Coach
    1 Apr 2014 | 6:40 pm
    How to know if attachment is spoiling your manifesting game? Here’s a quick quiz to help you know whether your manifesting process could benefit from some “letting go” practices. It’s easy to believe our happiness or well-being depends on certain outcomes – like becoming financially stable, recovering our health, finding a good partner, etc. But whenever we think we have to have specific results before we’ll feel good, that spoils the party. That perspective tells Universe we “need” something to happen in order to be happy, and that’s a…
  • How Easy Is It – for Real?

    26 Mar 2014 | 11:53 am
    From this week’s Easy World post, where we reviewed Julia Rogers Hamrick’s parallel reality where everything unfolds smoothly and effortlessly, Nneka Working Mystic writes: I’m walking a line now between ease and effort. On the one hand, I’ve undertaken some endeavors, like running, that take effort. I’m having a BALL with it!!! At the same time, I know the value of alignment. I know ease. I know allowing. And, I LOVE that. So, my question is, do you walk a line between ease and effort? Or is it all ease? In either case, how does it look for you? I love that question, Nneka.

  • Finding Focus in the Age of Distraction

    Rob Archer
    19 Apr 2014 | 9:17 am
    As the amount of digital information increases tenfold every five years, a conservative estimate is that the amount of information we are exposed to daily has doubled over the last 20 years (1). Now, I don’t know if that is good or bad, because humans adapt.  But what  is happening now goes way beyond incremental growth, and this quantitative change may begin to make a qualitative difference. After all,  the human mind did not evolve to ignore new information… Minds that ignored new information – that strange shadow over by the trees, the unfamiliar rustle in the…

    Rob Archer
    17 Jan 2014 | 12:50 pm
    One sunny morning around a year ago, I stormed into my office shaking with rage. In half an hour I was due to counsel someone. My husband had driven me to work; he and the children were going on to soccer training. It had been a typical Saturday morning: coffee, croissants, music played probably a tad too loud and the children bounding around. As we’d approached the office my husband had said something (I can’t even remember what it was), and I’d exploded with anger. My voice had sounded weird. Even as I’d glimpsed the thought “You need to keep it together,” every cell in my body…

  • Learning to Touch Fear

    Rachel Collis
    21 Nov 2013 | 9:01 pm
    My daughter, Ellie, is training her horse to touch an object. Ellie points at the object and says the word ‘touch’ and her horse, Josie, touches it with her nose. This seems like an odd skill to train. So I asked Ellie why she was doing this. She told me that if a horse sees something that is new, like a paper bag or a traffic cone, then their natural response is fear. Their focus narrows down to the thing that is frightening them, as if they were wearing blinders. Josie then becomes skittish and unpredictable and she ignores Ellie. But if she touches the threat, she realises that it is…

    When I was 16, I had the craziest summer of my life. I woke up in the middle of the night, my heart pounding and my palms sweating. Why oh why? Why had she broken up with me? I want her back! Walking, talking, working, studying – whatever I was doing, she would pop back into my head. I called, texted, and banged on her door. She told me she never wanted to see me again. I was a man boy with love spurned. Woe was me. Not. Drugs make the heart go crazy. At the start of my 16th summer, I was prescribed 2mg of prednisone, a type of steroid. Steroids aren’t prescribed for fibromyalgia,…
  • The 4 Things You Need to Know About Meditation

    Amit Amin
    17 Mar 2014 | 6:21 pm
    Meditation is HARD. Keeping still and staying focused is so unnatural that most who give meditation a try don’t keep it up. So it’s important to know: Does it work? Better than other techniques? How quickly? Is one type better than another? If we meditate for 50 hours but see only small benefits, well… we would be better off spending our time on other happiness hacks. To answer those questions I looked at three meta-analyses, which integrated the results of almost 20,000 meditation studies. What I found surprised the bonkers out of me. The most useful meta-analysis I looked at…
  • 54 Ways to Increase Your Happiness Set Point

    Amit Amin
    16 Dec 2013 | 3:55 pm
    Over a person’s lifetime, how much do you expect that their happiness will increase? Most people I’ve asked seem to think that the answer is ‘A LOT’. Sure, there’ll be tough times and the occasional sadness, but as they accomplish and accumulate, their happiness will go up and up and up. FALSE. Most people die a few percentage points happier than they were as children. Marriage, employment, friendship, growth… all it results in is a few percentage points of change. No surprise. Happiness is counter-intuitive. One study tracked the same individuals over the…
  • The 6 Simplifications of Positive Psychology – The Hot Mess of Measuring Happiness

    Amit Amin
    1 Oct 2013 | 10:59 am
    An assumption underlying the science of positive psychology is that happiness can be measured. Gratitude journals increase well-being… Money does little for happiness… Positivity can prevent divorce… Yelp is more trustworthy than your brain… Buying many small items is better than buying a few large things… Prove that assumption false, and hundreds of research findings fall apart into meaningless garble. Happiness measurement is a requirement for growth. Without measurement, growth stops. For example, if you want to lose weight but you don’t measure…

    Dream big dreams; only big dreams have the power to move men’s souls. -Marcus Aurelius, Emperor of Rome It’s a paradox. It’s the big goals that excite us and get us to stop hitting the snooze button. They make us feel alive. They make the boring interesting, and the frustrating exciting. But it’s the big goals that are the least likely to end up accomplished. After a short burst of energy, the excitement and interest fizzles. And then, maybe, you get excited once again. And then, just like last time, after a short burst of energy, the excitement fizzles and takes you back…

    Ever find yourself putting off mundane tasks?  You know those ones you kind of dread doing because they’re tedious, unrewarding and soooo boring. Every job I’ve ever had – even the dreams ones – came with it’s fair share of banal. And of course the longer you procrastinate hoping you’ll find a way to avoid these tasks, the more just thinking about doing them starts to weigh you down and undermine your performance at work. Given a sense of meaning has been found to improve our performance, commitment and well-being, is it possible to find meaning even in these…

  • Can You Turn Hopes Into Reality?

    Michelle McQuaid
    20 Mar 2014 | 2:57 pm
    When it comes to what you want to accomplish in the months ahead at work are you clear on what your hoping for? I ask because while research suggests eighty-nine per cent of us believe the future will be better than the present, only fifty per cent of us believe we can make it so. And yet studies show only when we hold both of these beliefs can we ignite enough hope to move us from where we are to where we want to be. So are you just wishing for success at work or are you truly hoping for it?  And what difference does it really make when it comes to your results? What Are You Hoping For?

Sound like a pipe dream? While the idea of profiting by investing in positive actions at work appeals to most of us, the reality is many organizations seem more focused on looking for our mistakes, giving negative feedback and filling our diaries…

So what has that got to do with your happiness? Well recent research has made some interesting connections.
