Developing strategies to increase your happiness is something we should all work towards. Luckily, I'm joined by the happiness guru herself, Marci Shimoff, who shares how to be happy for no reason.
Marci is a #1 NY Times bestselling author and transformational leader. She is an expert on happiness, success, and unconditional love. Marci inspires others to feel happiness and love for no reason, from the inside out.
In this episode, we talk about why it's so important to nurture our thoughts. When we focus on the good in the world, we see and experience more good. On the flip side, if we focus on the negative, we only see negative things.
Marci explains what the happiness set-point is and why it's so important to learn more about it. She also talks us through how we can change our happiness set-point - and why want to!
Marci briefly describes what the Inner Home of Happiness is and how it's built. There are four different parts of your life to nurture to boost your Inner Home. What area are you neglecting?
Training yourself to appreciate the good in every day is a practice. The happiest people in the world practice gratitude and seek out good moments. Marci shares how long it actually takes to appreciate a good moment.
Marci shares three techniques to help with spending more time at home with our families. She encourages you to play The Appreciation Game every day with your family. After all, "there is no better time to help raise the happiness set-point than with children."
