Boost Your Happiness
Positive psychology and the neuroscience of happiness have shown that we tend towards a set-point of happiness–which means that whether you win the lottery or lose your job, after a brief period of elation or disappointment, you’ll pretty much come back to your base line, or set-point of happiness within a few days, weeks, or months.
But research has also demonstrated that only fifty percent of our set-pointis genetic–so we have a lot of room to raise our basic level of contentment in our lives!
There are a number of techniques that have been proven to raise this set-point: meditating, exercise, helping others, and gratitude, among others.
The good news is: they work! And even though they are well worth the effort, the fact is that most people, after an initial burst of enthusiasm, fail to consistently put them into practice.
Another approach is cognitive therapy, which can help you counter irrational beliefs and change the way you think–but there’s often a nagging feeling left over, that undermines the changes you actually want to make.
Why is that?
Negative thinking has such a firm grip on many of us simply because it’s an incredibly strong habit! We also evolved during a time when it made sense to watch your back, and be suspicious of strangers. Whenever something distressing happens, our minds tend to follow the groove of our habitual mental pathways–which often include pessimistic thoughts and negative beliefs.
Having the intention to be more positive can of course be very helpful–but as many of us know, good intentions are often not enough to sustain a substantial change in behavior.
But what if you could Boost Your Happiness Quotient and with very little effort,
raise your set-point of happiness?
Well actually, you can!
I have developed an amazingly simple but effective method to help you gain immediate access to the source of your own love, wisdom, and happiness.
Not only is this technique simple, it’s easy, pleasant, and fun.
Plus, you’ll experience immediate benefits:
You’ll feel more joy, less stress, and frankly you’ll probably just be a lot more fun to be around!
(need we mention, sexier!)
Each time you make this shift, you will automatically train your mind to create new pathways in your brain. As you strengthen your ability to shift out of old patterns, you will develop your own pathway to happiness.
Shift Your Mood will help you become aware of how moods express themselves physically. Instead of trying to escape bad moods by using drugs, alcohol, or compulsive behaviors that can make things worse, you’ll become more mindful of what’s actually happening in your own body. This prepares you to shift to a more resourced place of inner wisdom, vitality, and aliveness.
Once you make this shift, you will know on a gut level how you’d rather live your life: in a constricted, uptight mood, or with open-hearted joy, contentment, and well-being.
By boosting your set-point of happiness, it has a rapidly escalating effect: You’ll be even more likely to follow through on some of the other proven techniques for enhancing happiness and well-being, as you live a much more fulfilling life.
Shift Your Mood can help you realize what you are not: your thoughts, the role you play, your stories, or your moods–plus some practical ways to deal with hassles at work, arguments with loved ones, getting stuck in traffic, panic attacks, compulsive behavior, or even romantic obsessions.
