TedTalks seems to be on a roll here at FictionAllDay.
‘The Happy Secret to Better Work’ is a great, light video that is both inspiring and incredibly helpful. Shawn Achor is both charismatic and funny, which makes this 12 minute video seem even shorter.
I’ll bet that we’ve all found it to be true that being happier leads to better work (and better relationships, sleep, etc.). What’s more important to a writer than better work? Shawn has a few tips that help you increase your positivity throughout the day and I personally have been following his advice to write down three things I’m thankful for every day (without ever repeating) for the past two months. I can say for certain that I enjoy the habit and it makes me feel good. As an example, last night I was thankful for hot showers, rain, and fruit.
What are you thankful for?
