My three favorite moments of the day

I propose you to try the following exercise: "My three favorite moments of the day". The impact on yourself is tremendous!

At the end of the day, before going to sleep, write in a notebook (or on your Facebook profile as the current challenge requests you to do) your three favorite moments of the day. 

Thereby you will end your day on a positive note.
Writing makes your idea more concrete. They are not "floating in the air" anymore.
If you collect all your favorite moments in a notebook, it is easier to read them in a row.

If you got nominated on Facebook, you need to write 5 days in a row your three favorite moments of the day on your profile.
Personally, I write my favorite moments in a notebook already every night since months. I notice my mood and mental state changed. Because I am focused on positive moments and experiences, I forget little by little the less good ones. I am more positive, more optimistic and happier.

Try this exercise and tell in the comment section how it affected you!

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!
