International Day of Happiness

Today, March 20 was announced by the United Nations as the International Day of Happiness.

I wanted to share with you a tool I find very helpful. It is called the positivity ratio.

Barbara Fredrickson, Positivity

Numerator = Positive Emotion
Denominator = Negative Emotion

Higher ratios are correlated with higher levels of well-being.

Which means that to be happier, you can increase the positive emotions you feel and/or decrease the negative emotions you feel.

Any idea? Write it up and take action!
