Neuroscience Happiness Rx

Inspiration teacher, Letitia Walker and her website, Live Yoga Now.   One of her recent blog posts led us to this post by Eric Barker about a recent book called The Upward Spiral by Alex Korb.

According to Eric's summary of the research, there are four steps to make yourself happy.   

  • Ask “What am I grateful for?” No answers? Doesn’t matter. Just searching helps.
  • Label those negative emotions. Give it a name and your brain isn’t so bothered by it.
  • Decide. Go for “good enough” instead of “best decision ever made on Earth.”
  • Hugs, hugs, hugs. Don’t text — touch.
