Incorporate gratitude

Incorporate gratitude

The most powerful habit that helps boost happiness in the morning is the practice of gratitude. The people who journaled about the things they're thankful for during the week scored much higher on measures of happiness than people who noted the things they're irritated by.

A daily gratitude practice may contribute to improved physical health - which, in turn, contributes to overall feelings of happiness.

Have social contact

Have social contact

It depends on your personality and your schedule as to how you're going to connect with someone. It doesn't have to be an actual fact-to-face conversation, a simple text or email to a friend or family.

Send good thoughts and consciously focus on the things that you cherish about them.

Get your phone out of your room

Screens hamper happiness. This is backed by many studies and it confirms that frequent use of social media can decrease mood over time and that a high volume of emails is connected with overall feelings of unhappiness.

Practice self-talk

Practice self-talk

It seems like a crazy idea but it's pretty helpful in many ways. The people who spend a lot of time talking to themselves in their own heads are more likely able to calm themselves down during stressful mornings.

A helpful tip for this is to say your own name. When you say your own name during self-talk, you're actually more likely to follow your own advice.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
