Happy Friday Good Eggs! To end the week, I thought I’d talk about the importance of walking. Most people think that to get in good shape, you need to follow a consistent, rigorous training routine.

It really doesn’t need to be that hard!

Walking is a great way to burn calories, lose weight, and improve your cardiovascular health.

Hello fellow yolks! I hope you all had a very restful weekend. I thought I’d share something that one of my readers told me last week. Shawn Achor has a book called “The Happiness Advantage.”

If you were interested in last week’s video about how happiness and success are related, then you should definitely read his book.

If you missed the video and want to see it, check it out here. Again, I highly recommend a watch!

Happy Friday! Today’s newsletter is a short one. It’s just a reminder to try to do these things each day. They will increase your happiness levels!

Write down 3 things you are grateful for each day: creates a pattern of having your brain scan the world for positive things

Journal about 1 positive experience you had each day: allows your brain to relive that experience

Exercise: trains your brain that your behavior matters

Meditation: allows your brain to focus on the task at hand

Random Acts of Kindness: are conscious acts of kindness. Achor had people in companies write one positive email to someone — praising or thanking them.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Wednesday! I HIGHLY recommend watching this TEDx talk. It’s both entertaining and educational. You’ll learn how to become happier and how happiness is the leading factor of success in life.

Shawn Achor is an author and speaker who is known for his promotion of positive psychology.

Achor debunks the belief that “our external world is predictive of our happiness levels.”

Instead he explains “90% of your long-term happiness is predicted not by the external world but by the way your brain processes the world.”

The Happiness Advantage: “the brain at positive performs significantly better than at negative, neutral, or stressed. Your intelligence rises, your creativity rises, your energy levels rise.”

It’s no longer: success in life = happiness

It’s now happiness = success in life.
