But I have to admit that 2015 brought melancholic times as well:
So, what’s in store for the upcoming year? Well, I’ve never been one for resolutions, but I’ve been thinking a lot about a TED Talk I watched a short time ago that presented a 21-day approach to “creating lasting positive change.” I was unfamiliar with TED Talks until a fellow writer posted this on her blog. I watched the full 12+ minute video, and there was something about the speaker, Shawn Achor, and information that made me smile. I jotted down his five daily tasks, and that was that. I never went back to the list—until now.
You’ll notice a new tab on this website called “Happiness Challenge.” For the first 21 days of January, I’m challenging myself to abide by Achor’s five daily tasks:
This challenge is what I need to get back on track with happiness and health, which can’t help but have a ripple effect on my personal and professional lives, as well as my writing hobby. What do you think? Wanna join me?
As always, thanks for your support!
