Positive Work Life Editorial | The Marketing Boutique


October 21, 2013

Read The Positive Work Life, a three-part editorial on achieving personal and work-life happiness, written exclusively by Caroline Adams Miller for The Marketing Boutique.

One of the most important findings in Positive Psychology is that we are completely in charge of our well-being, and that knowing what our natural emotional set point is, and what can move the needle to put us into a flourishing state, can alter the course of our day, as well as our lives.    It is hard to overstate the importance of being proactive about this aspect of how we live our lives, and what can happen to you as a result, particularly when it comes to goals, friendships and feeling like your life has purpose and meaning.

FINDING #1:  You can and should create your own happiness instead of waiting for happiness to happen to you.  Some of the most exciting research has been around the heritability of well-being, and the fact that although half of our daily happiness is genetically determined, almost half of it is completely due to what we think about and do on a daily basis.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing, being happy sounds difficult but when you explain it in actionable steps, it can be possible. Especially for a small business, follow-through, do a couple of things that maybe challenging and finish the goal can really make an positive impact to a business.
