When our brains are at “happy” that positivity will ripple out to others and can increase productivity. Here are Achor’s 5 simple changes/habits that can create lasting positive change:

  1. 3 Gratitudes (thank 3 people each day)
  2. Journaling (write about good things that happened each day)
  3. Exercise
  4. Meditation (take time to reflect)
  5. Random Acts of Kindness
