Happiness and how it affects our brain

On Mondays I try to watch/listen to something inspirational to get me into the right headspace for the upcoming week. I’ve been unable to do this for the past few weeks, so now I’m trying to get back on track.

This week was this great TED talk about how Happiness can affect our brain.

I learned that being happy affects your creativity and productivity. That by the simple act of being happy, I could become much better at my job. So how can I do that? I’m very goal oriented. I make a goal, I work hard to reach it… and then when I do reach it I make another goal.

Instead of taking the time to celebrate that win, I push harder. This ended up resulting in a less-happier Tish. So from now on, I celebrate the little wins and instead push for happiness.
