6 Tips for Happiness

Tal Ben-Shahar, AKA the most popular professor on Harvard campus, has noticed something that is often wrong with the perspective with many professionals in the psychology field. There is too much emphasis on what is wrong with us – our anxiety, our depression, our anger. Instead, he suggests, what if we flip all of this over and notice what’s good and the things that are working in our lives.

happy coupleLeigha Butler compiled these six tips from Ben-Shahar that you can do to increase happiness:

1. Give yourself permission to be human.

2. Simplify. Less is more.

3. Develop goals that fit for you.

4. Value your relationships, particularly the healthy ones.

5. Cultivate a connection between your body and mind.

6. Focus on the positive in your life.

The original article by Leigha is over at Elephant Journal and has even more good stuff in it.
