If you’re making New Years’ resolutions or not, a super effective happiness booster is to Celebrate the Small Wins!
Small wins can be anything from receiving an act of random kindness like someone smiling or allowing you to cross the street to noticing a slice of natural beauty in this miraculous world.
We can then maximise the positive effect of these victories by using physical gestures such as lifting the chin, opening the chest, smiling, or even fist-pumping the air and shouting with joy! These actions all release powerful positive hormones that help to the strengthen circuitry in the mind that tunes into those small wins, so we become more aware of the small wins, and can feel even better about them too.
