29 May Happiness – a daily dose of awe and gratitude
Most of us wake up thinking about how we are going to meet obligations and fulfill promises to other people. We begin our day in response mode and remain that way until it’s time to go to bed. For 12 years, David Pollay (Positive Psychologist) has begun his day with the same positive ritual aimed at enhancing happiness.
To begin with, he talks about “experiencing awe”.
Following this he recommends considering profound outcomes and verbalising gratitude.
Finally, he touches on the rewards of ritual.
As many of you know, at The Happiness Institute we believe that achieving happiness requires nothing more than practising a few simple disciplines every day.
This seems like a very good happiness discipline for first thing in the morning.
