5 Simple Step to Happiness

Just 5 Simple Steps each day sounds too easy but they can definitely make you a happier person say Shawn Achor, author of  "The Happiness Advantage".

1. Write down three things you are grateful for each day. Do this in the morning for a pre-workday mood boost.

2. Spend 5 minutes each day journaling about a positive thing that happened to you and be as specific as possible.

3. Meditate each day for 2 -5 minutes and focus on your breathing. It will be a welcome break from the usual manic multi-tasking.

4. Perform one random act of kindness every day. Hold the door for someone, smile at a stranger, don't bloc the entrance and allow someone pull out into the highway.

5. Exercise. You don't have to do a lot but just getting your body moving creates a good feeling.
