Decades of research have shown that seeing the world through “rose-colored glasses” will give you more success, health and happiness.
Yes, looking for the positive in your daily life will give you more of what you want health, health and happiness. It can change your day from a crappy one to an enjoyable one. Wearing rose-colored glasses actually changes your brain and thought process, so you can enjoy your life. Most menopausal women look for what is not working in their lives and forget to look for what is working in their daily lives. The results are depression, feeling not enough, frustration and lots and lots of stress and tears. So maybe, it is time to dust off and clean your Rose-Colored glasses.
During the “Change” our hormones and life seem out of balanced.
Years of looking for problems to solve is not giving us purpose or joy at this time in our lives. We feel out of balanced without a road map to feel better. So let’s train your “menopause” brain to see your world differently, so you can get back on your road to joy!
In our course, “Closing the Happiness Gap-Sweet Success Package”, the very first daily exercise to retrain your brain to Bee Happy is “to look for three good things” that happened that day and record them or share them with someone. In Shawn Achor’s book, The Happiness Advantage, he shared he has used the “3 Good Things” exercise with amazing “lasting happiness” results. He has taught this exercise all over the world to his clients with fast and permanent “happy” results. Teaching the brain to look for good can make going through “the Change” a lot less daunting.
We recorded the “Closing the Happiness – Gap Sweet Success Package” course during a tele-a-series we did earlier this year with perimenopause and menopause gals. In the first session, the assignment was the “3 Good Things” Exercise. The participants were to report how their week went through emails and when we met up again. In one short week, the results were amazing. We had one gal who was having trouble with co-workers at work for years. After one week, reported she had a great week and got along with everyone. She asked, “Can it happen that fast?” I guess cleaning her Rose-Colored glasses supported her in retraining her brain to Bee Happy by looking for 3 good things at work.
We all have so many negative thoughts in a day which gives us few opportunities to feel happy.
It is time to change all that for good! When we clean our “Rose-Colored” glasses and see the good, it starts to put balance in our emotional side of our day. It cancels out the negative and opens us up to other positive opportunities. In return, we feel Healthier and Happier!
