If you want to stop reacting to your life and start living it, this book will get you moving in the right direction. Years ago I was a rower, and in sport everyone knows you need to pay attention to yourself, your intent and your mindset, to be at your best. This book reminded me of all I learned from those days about the importance of having the right attitude. I found it a great, practical guide to applying these and other helpful psychological insights in business — something we do all too infrequently. Wise, humane and fun — the best behavioral self-help book by far.

In How to Have a Good Day , economist and former McKinsey partner Caroline Webb shows readers how to use recent findings from behavioral economics, psychology, and neuroscience to transform our approach to everyday working life. Advances in these behavioral sciences are giving us ever better understanding of how our brains work, why we make the choices we do, and what it takes for us to be smart and savvy.

How to Change Your Life by Making Every Day the Best Day of Your Life
Per rientrare a casa la sera con la sensazione di aver vissuto davvero una buona giornata. Our book. About the book Advances in the behavioral sciences are giving us an ever-better understanding of how our brains work, why we make the choices we do, and what it takes for us to be at our best. Reading with friends or colleagues?
Invest your life in someone else everyday. Mentor a child. Help a co-worker. Fund a local charity. Or just make that phone call to a friend who needs to hear from you. Our lives are more than flesh and blood.
They are also mind and heart and soul. Find time each day to feed your soul by embracing gratitude, laughter, hope, and faith. Tomorrow is another day with great potential and opportunity. Take 10 minutes each evening to clear the clutter and refresh your home for the next day. Today is among the greatest gifts we have ever been given. Inspiring others to live more by owning less. Follow on Twitter Like on Facebook. I think the biggest challenge in this day is item 7: Be present with others. I have found it very hard to put down the smart phone and give my full attention to those I am around.
Lastly, did you find yourself like I do? Living for the weekends? Thanks for the post! Brian, It is a huge addiction which I believe is recognized. It will eventually have a 12 step program just like AA. You realizing the issue is the first step to solving it. I hate AA. It is like fundamentalism in any religion. Thanks, and keep posting. God forbid we address issues by talking face to face about our problems. Ive been silent turning off TV when no one is watching it, and starting tonight we are eating supper at table with just music playing. I do sometimes forget to eat healthy in the morning to start my day off right.
Eating protein is very key and I make sure to remember to do that. The reason why I say that is because I tend to go to bed quite late and getting only like hours of sleep is really hard for me to greet the day. It is a working progress but so is mostly everything in life. Today I felt really sluggish and tired and I went through the whole day doing.. All I did was watch screens. Boredom has become a dirty word in our culture, but really, filling our day from morning til night with tasks can be another way we distract ourselves.
I think we should all be careful not to fill our time with busywork that makes us feel productive but may in fact just be time clutter. Good luck on your journey! There are always places in my mind to go. These are good goals to set for each day, and they are doable if I just be intentional. Thank you for sharing them. I know everyone else has probably heard this phrase a lot but I really love it going to write it in many places studying trying to be more present what a great way to look at it thank you.

How to Make a Great Day
Before moving on to the next task, take some time to acknowledge your achievement. How about now? I think it is very healthy to just pause, acknowledge the accomplishment, smile, breathe, take a small break, THEN gather up our resolve to tackle the next task. Thanks for this great post, I very much enjoyed reading it, and will be implementing your advice in 3.
Lucky for me, many of those items can be combined! People walk around looking so dour and with their faces pointed to the device in their hands — but you can make a difference if you smile and look people in the eye that you pass. For example, one day at the supermarket, a guy took the space I wanted because he pulled all of the way through from the other side. I found another spot a few spaces away. I just smiled back and told him I found a fine spot too. Great point Alex! I notice the same thing when I walk around. If I recall it correctly he talks about looking into peoples eyes as you walk by.
If they catch you just keep looking and smile. It helps build confidence and most people will quickly look away…but you also notice every so often, some people will actually smile back. I agree with you Alex the world IS too grumpy, I make it my mission to smile randomly at people in order to create some kind of smile chain. I do look slightly mad but it really is lovely when people just acknowledge one another somehow. I also definitely agree with early rising, not only is it lovely to have peaceful time before the world starts moving around me, I find that I am more prepared for work when I have had time to awaken fully and prepare my mind for the day ahead.
Thanks for this reminder. It really comes down to simple things which are very do-able. It helps to have them laid out so simply. Even focusing oon a few would make a big difference! Even after 11 years, this wake-up time does not work well for me. My body really wants to sleep 11 p. I have trouble being sleepy early enough to mesh well with the a. May work… after 11 years, one would have thought your body would have gotten use to the early rises. I hear you! That was a really inspiring article! I have one question for you though: how do you let go of stress?
If that happens, what do you recommend fellow minimalists should do? If you are capable, walk. Exercise is the most rewarding gift you can give yourself each day…only 30 minutes of walking can help your body and kick off a wonderful spiritual awareness. Hi and thanks for the advice. Although going for a walk might sometimes be impractical, focusing on what I am grateful for really makes a difference! Hello there!
Hopefully your day-to-day work is a worthwhile endeavor, but if you're stuck in a holding pattern of busywork it happens to all of us , make the extra effort to find something to do that makes a difference and improves the world. Self-centered people are always unhappy because they're shoveling all their energy into the bottomless pit of their egos. The best and easiest way to get over yourself is to do something for somebody who needs your help.
Do it anonymously, if possible. If you're reading this blog post, you're probably striving to achieve an even higher level of success. However, if you don't stop and feel grateful , I guarantee that you won't enjoy yourself when you get wherever you're headed. At the end of the day, take out your journal, smartphone, or tablet and write down at least one positive memory about that day.
