We have so much more now than before so why don’t we have more happiness?
Seligman took a group of depressed people and asked them to spend a few minutes at the end of every day writing down three things that went well for them that day. Surprisingly, at the end of seven days their happiness scores went up.
Here’s why: One of the keys to becoming happier is focusing on what is right in our lives instead of what went wrong or what we don’t have.
Try it for a week. For just seven days, write down 3 thinks that went well that day. Keep your list and see how you feel after the 7 days. Here’s betting that you will feel the difference and you might just be on your way to feeling a little bit happier
