TED Talk - The Happy Secret to Work

Shawn Anchor - Positive Psychology!
Fun talk and lots of good information about the benefits of being positive and also how to be positive.


Your external world as a predictor for happiness is only 10% (what you are, where you are, job, money, status etc). The key is your lens, your inner formula for happiness. It's not - Work hard, be successful and be happy. Delink happiness and success. Focus on the positive.
Dopamine serves two purposes he says - makes you happy, but also opens all the learning centres of the brain. Staying positive has its benefits. To get positive do this minute exercise for 21 days - write 3 gratitudes, journal, exercise, meditation, do random acts of kindness. As little as two minutes.
