1. Techniques to instantly brighten up your day: smile and whistle
If you’re in a happy mood, you work smarter than when you are in a grumpy mood. There are many simple ways to lift your mood and brighten up your day within minutes.
**KEY POINT: You work smarter when you’re in a good mood.
The first way is to smile, whether you feel like it or not. Once I was really stressed out at work. I had nothing to smile about, but I forced my face to smile. Doing that changes the chemistry in your body that actually makes you feel better. It’s true when you feel a certain emotion, your body would physically mimic that emotion. For example, if you feel happy, your face would naturally smile. The reverse is also true. If you make your body physically do something, you will start feeling the accompanying emotion.
Another way to instantly brighten up your day is to whistle, or hum a song. It’s hard to whistle and feel grumpy at the same time. You’ve probably heard the song lyrics that go, “whistle while you work.” It will make you happier instantly. Then you can work smarter.
**PUT IT INTO ACTION: smile even if you don’t feel like it. Whistle if your work place allows it, or hum quietly to yourself. All of these simple yet powerful techniques can lift your mood within a short period of time and significantly improve the quality of your work. You can also try other actions like snapping your fingers or clapping your hands.
