Tuesday Tip: Broadcast Your Good News

May 10, 2011 | Tuesday Tips | 0 comments

One thing you can do today to be happier.

Take note of one great thing that has happened to you this week, and share it with a friend.

When you have good news, share it, because the sharing will make you even happier. This is Savoring 101: Positive emotions are amplified when we share them with others.
Telling someone about something positive that happened this week will also make you more likely to remember the happy event.

More benefits to not keeping quiet: Sharing something positive that happened to you today will also make those around you happier. Positive emotions like joy and excitement, like all emotions, are contagious. So don’t hold back—go ahead and broadcast your great news!
