Share Your Appreciation
Share Your Appreciation
Build up someone; it strengthens bonds and brightens the day for you both.
Social connection is the strongest predictor of happiness, affirms former Harvard researcher Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage. And the simple act of expressing praise or thanks is the single most powerful habit his research has found for enhancing these feelings.
- Show appreciation to different people
- Do this at the start of the day
- Don’t assume they’ll respond, but if they do by email, text, or handwritten note, keep it to revisit when you need a boost.
The research behind this activity found that small, daily habits are more important to happiness than major changes like taking a cruise.
Counselor's away from school
I try to get outside for at least 45 minutes each day. Too much time on the screens makes me a little cranky. Make sure you are getting outside and moving every day!
Hopefully some of you like breakfast as much as my kids. Last weekend, I made my family French toast and I think it was the bread that put it over the top. If you love French toast, try using challah bread in your next batch!
