At work this week (hospital and UVU) we've been talking about being happy, and the difference in health when one person is optimistic rather than pessimistic. I'm not talking Pollyanna denial happiness, but just being happy in the moment, regardless of what happened or may happen. We watched this Happiness TED talk by Steve Achor, at both places of employment - and I tell you, he's funny, and he's pretty darn smart. So . . . for your watching enjoyment this weekend, take 11, and learn how to be happy, and how happiness will truly benefit your entire life. Then - join me in working this premise for March. I'm in. You too?
