You know WHAT percentage of people ARE really happy? Not oh, life is pretty good, I mean people who ARE flourishing. They feel their lives ARE fulfilling, meaningful, and brimming with potential. Via Sweet Spot: How to Find Your Groove at Home and Work: less than one in five. And the question that follows is, of course: How DO I become one of those people? I've been accumulating research on HAPPINESS for a while. The good news is: there's lot of it. The bad news is: Who can remember to DO all that stuff? Well, one expert finally put it together into a simple five-part formula. Christine Carter is a sociologist at UC Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center which studies Psychology and neuroscience of Well-Being. She looks at research and exhaustively compiles it into her book, Sweet Spot: How to Find Your Groove at Home and Work. So WHAT's this formula for Find Your Sweet Spot of HAPPINESS without completely overhauling your Life? Most of what WE DO all day is instrumental. WHAT's that mean? It get something to DO. It's practical. It achieves goal. But these days WE seem to be doing more and more that's instrumental and a lot less that's just fun. WE forget to play. Is that So Bad? Actually, you have NO idea how bad it is. Noted psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi tried an experiment: He tells people to just DO instrumental activities all DAY long. NO fun allow, literally. The Old saying is all work and NO play Make Jack a dull boy. It's more accurate to say, all work and NO play give Jack clinical anxiety disorder in under 48 hours. Seriously. AFTER two days, he End experiment because of the extreme negative effects it was having on test subjects. So by trying to be so productive and get so much DO, you're probably stressing yourself out. WHAT to DO? Schedule a little bit of fun every 90 minutes or so. Nothing productive allow. You CAN actually get more DO sometimes by being a bit of a slacker. Vacations make you more productive. By working 60 hours a week you CAN Get lot DO. But when you work that hard for too long, your productivity drops off. AFTER two months of 60 hours a week, you'll actually accomplish less than if you'd only been working 40 hours a week. Via Scarcity: Why Having Too Little mean So Much: You might be worried that taking breaks will mean you still get less DO. But we've Get solution for that. You spend 40 percent of the DAY on autopilot, engaging in habits, not actual decisions. Via Power of Habit: Why WE DO WHAT WE DO in Life and Business: and WE Get more DO when we're on autopilot, actually. Not having to make decisions uses less willpower. So start building better habits. You don't decide to brush your teeth, it's just something you DO and it's not a struggle.
