Presently I am experiencing the wisdom of Shawn Anchor , an author of the book “the Gratitude Advantage “. He had an informative TED talk about achieving happiness . Some of the advantages that I have enjoyed are improved productivity , focus , and learning at a faster pace . His formula for happiness includes the following : A) Writing down 3 things you are grateful for daily B) Meditation and or focus about one thing for 15 minutes C) Exercise and moving your body D) Writing a few sentences about a positive experience in the past 24 hours E) Random acts of Kindness
These things have been incorporated into my daily life and I am truly a much happier person . I have been more present , more kind, more grateful and seek goodness in others . It is a habit that I have developed and plan to continue for the rest of my life! I know that from speaking to many members of the Master Key group and reading their blogs , that it has been a life changing experience for them too .
I think its fitting to close with a very moving song about happiness by Pharrell Williams because it makes me want to dance and sing about being “happy” every time
I have included some of the blogs from other members of the Master Key below so please read at your leisure .
