DAY 12

GIVE UP THAT GRUDGE


Sixty percent of happiness depends on your DNA and life circumstances, but what you think and do affect the other 40 percent—sweet news for your state of mind.

So take two weeks and these joy-inducing tips. You’ll be amazed at what one small tweak a day can do. The proof is in the positivity!

BLISS BOOSTER: Forgive someone—that maniac who cut you off on the freeway or a pal who stood you up. Breathe in, exhale, and imagine all hostility leaving you; replace it with compassion and love.

PLEASURE PAYOFF: When someone hurts us, we often replay the jab until its memory stings more than the actual affront. “This kind of rumination is bad for your health,” says Everett Worthington, Ph.D., psychology professor. “It’s linked to depression, stress and heart disease.” Let go of the slight to become more generous, empathetic and emotionally stable.
