Hardwiring Happiness

I’ve been reading a lot of self improvement and psychology type books.

Hardwiring Happiness was quite good.

The main things I took away from it are:

  1. We have a negativity bias. It’s passed down from our ancestors who survived and bred. The ones who were cautious, clingy and wary of a tiger attack were the ones who survived versus the super bold or unaware-of-danger folks were eaten by the tiger.
  2. Recognizing this bias, we can work to overcome it to be more neutral and positive.
  3. When you have good experiences, pause, really soak them in. Let them be like a warm sun on you, let them be like a soothing balm filling in parts of you that felt empty or hurt. A SOOTHING BALM I TELL YOU!

This is good advice so I wanted to share it. Read the book for more details and cool applicable science to improve your everyday life.
