Energy: A Pre-Requisite for Happiness and Well Being

YOUR ENERGY

Most of us feel we do not enough hours in a day to manage all that we need to. This week we will talk about energy – how to get it, ways to manage it and how to restore it. You must often hear around the term maybe you use it many times, “I have no energy, I am so tired.” I hope at the end of this week by the time you read and listen to the three videos you will feel more alive, more engaged and more radiant that before reading/listening to these videos. Energy is a force that is imperative for you to accomplish anything and everything. Energy: A Pre-Requisite for Happiness and Well Being

How Happiness leads to greater level of Productivity and Profits?

Productivity and its Connection to Happiness

New research suggests we work more effectively, creatively, and collaboratively when we’re happy at work. A recent study by economists at the University of Warwick found that happiness led to a 12% spike in productivity, while unhappy workers proved 10% less productive. As the research team put it, “We find that human happiness has large and positive causal effects on productivity. Positive emotions appear to invigorate human beings.”

When we are happy we become more positive and have more energy to deal with what life throws at us. Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage, has found that the brain works much better when a person is feeling positive. At those times, individuals tend to be more creative and better at solving problems. And additional research has shown that when workers are happy they’re more effective collaborators working toward common goals. As Achor sees it, the incentive for organizations is clear-cut—”happiness leads to greater levels of profits” for companies that take the right steps.
