Motivational Monday Volume Volume 170! Savour the small things that make you happy!

The act of savouring—mining pleasant moments for their joy is proven to increase happiness.

In one study published in The Journal of Positive Psychology, 101 men and women kept diaries for a month, recording positive activities they participated in and how much they did or didn’t savour them.

Those who tended to enjoy a good thing—and share their delight with others—maintained high levels of happiness no matter what the day brought, whereas non-appreciators needed positive events to get into a good mood.

Savouring is a no-brainer—just tune in to your senses.

Inhale that pinot grigio; feel the soft rug under your bare feet.

You can even find ways to relish tasks; try running YouTube as you delete junk email.

Take Action:

Which small things that bring you joy could you savour today?
