The Great Eight

The G8 summit or the Group of Eight is the annual meeting of the world's top economic leaders, happening since 1973. In 2013 it became the G7 due to the removal of Russia, due to their invasion of Crimea.

The G8 is more like a club of the world's most powerful people, where the leader of the group changes annually, and there is no legal or political authority.

The Original Eight countries are the US, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia and the UK.

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.

Our mental image

Our self-image help determine how we react to the daily ups and downs of life. If we think of ourselves as valued, other people will also notice that quality.

Think about how you would describe yourself to a stranger. Would you point to your keen sense of humour or good physical features? Or would you refer to your supposed "trouble areas?" Your answer mostly depends on your mental image of yourself.

How accurate is our mental image of ourselves?
