Think happy thoughts (about yesterday)

In happiness on August 12, 2009 at 10:09 am

Research shows that simply thinking about one event that went well in your life the previous day can improve your happiness levels instantly.

Try it. Just think back to yesterday and remember something that went well. It can be quite simple – seeing friends, a good cup of coffee, reading a good blog, or just the weather.

Pyschologist and quirky mind stuff man Richard Wiseman has been writing about this on his blog at the same time as running his ongoing happiness experiment. It makes for really interesting reading. There’s a short video on his site encouraging us to think about nice things that happened yesterday.

Do you feel any better now?
