Simply Good Life - Happiness Exercise | Form New Habits Quickly | Surgery on Fruits
By Adam Egger • Issue #197 • View online
Hi friends, here is your weekly dose of “Simply Good Life", a newsletter that tries to make your day a little bit better and help you to grow personally and professionally. Enjoy!

Form New Habits in Just a Few Days
Are there things you’d love to start doing but you don’t? Maybe there are no emotions involved. Remember:
Habits form through emotion, not repetition.
“In my own research, I found that habits can form very quickly, often in just a few days, as long as people have a strong positive emotion connected to the behavior… When I teach people about human behavior, I boil it down to three words to make the point crystal clear: emotions create habits. Not repetition. Not frequency. Not fairy dust. Emotions.”
BJ Fogg, PhD, founded the Behavior Design Lab at Stanford University. He is the author of Tiny Habits: The Small Changes that Change Everything.
So whenever you start doing something new, tell yourself how much you love how you feel after doing it. Don’t blindly repeat the new habit. Find a positive emotion that you could connect with the new habit.
The Way to Love
Anthony De Mello
The reason why you are unhappy is because you are focusing on what you do not have rather than on what you have right now.

Be Envious, be Jealous
Do you sometimes feel jealous? Do you sometimes envy people? These negative feelings can be your teacher. They show you something:
Finally, pay attention to what you envy. Jealousy is an ugly emotion, but it tells the truth. You mostly envy those who have what you desire. — Susan Cain
It’s a quote from the great book about introverts: Quiet by Susan Cain.
Additionally, find below a fascinating TED video about the power of introverts.

Quote I Love

Life consists of so many elements: family, friends, fun, faith, finances, fitness. But we always focus on the one area in life we’re not happy with. Now, for every of these words, spend some time writing down what you already have reached. Brag a bit, for a moment feel great about your achievements.
Focus on what you have right now…
Have a fantastic day, all
