Happiness Tip: Take a Picture in Your Mind

In the hustle and bustle of this holiday season, boost your happiness with this savoring technique: take a mental photograph. “Pause for a moment and consciously be aware of things you  want to remember later,” Stacey Kennelly instructs in this Greater Good article, “such as the sound of a loved one’s chuckle, or a touching moment between two family members.”

This is a way of consciously looking for the good in our daily life and bringing our awareness to it so that we might enjoy positive moments more.

Take Action: Pause long enough to compose a mental picture in your mind of something you are enjoying. What sound, sight, or feeling would you particularly like to savor?
