Over to you – if there was a way for you to learn 70% faster, would you be open to looking at it?
And, if you’re not sure, would it help you to make a decision if you knew that this simple concept can help you work better and feel better?
For most of us, we’ll likely say ‘mine’s a yeah!’
So, what is it? (Can you bare the suspense?)
Well, it’s beautifully simple – we learn 70% faster when we’re happier.
You may be thinking ‘Sure, I want to be happier, it’s just that it’s not that easy’.
Here’s the thing.
It may be more do-able than you think.
The kicker is finding a way to tune in to what makes us happy – which is as unique as our Cellular Fingerprint. More on this in a mo.
In the meantime though, I mentioned that being happier can help us in more ways than one. Is it really worth it though?
I’ll let you decide…
Being happier has been shown to positively impact our interpersonal connections, improve our productivity and immune response, open up the learning centers in our brains and increase our effectiveness.1
Ok, so maybe it’s worth it. How can we get into our happy place though?
4 effective ways to get into your happy groove –
1-Practice an awareness of gratitude, which can help us spot the good stuff, even when the chips are down. When we actively look for it, we can find what’s good.
2-Take a walk in nature – for me this is such a leveler and a refreshing way to put things into perspective (especially when I need to get over myself)
3-Take some deep breaths – this literally helps our nervous system reset from fright-flight-flight to ease and flow
4-Spend time with loved ones –and we can always find ways to connect with one another, even if not with a physical hug!
So, I’m curious: what works for you?
If you’re feeling stuck with this right now (as I do sometimes), it can be handy to ask ourselves this question (and be willing to let ourselves answer it) – ‘if there was one thing that could have me feel happy, what could it be?’
Wrapping up – if you’ve found this blog useful, please do share, as it may make all the difference to one you care about. And of course I love hearing from you, when you have a mo.
Keep sharing your sunshine, ‘til I see you on this week’s #AliveWithFi 😊
Ciao for now!
1 From the NeuroLeadership Institute Dr. David Rock shares that “There is a large and growing body of research which indicates that people experiencing positive emotions perceive more options when trying to solve problems, solve more non-linear problems that require insight, [and they] collaborate better and generally perform better overall.”
How refreshing that the research is backing up what makes so much intuitive and logical sense – that when we’re feeling positive, we’re more able to focus on what we do want.
