Do you ever have one of those days that seem like you're just putting out fires? By the end of the day, do you feel as if the only thing you've done is address problems? Focusing on resolving problems often gets us into a mental state of thinking only of obstacles. Before we know it, we have a frown on our face and a desire to snap at others. Avoid the collective stress of daily problems by taking a HAPPINESS BREATHER.


If you can, close the door to your office and put your phone on do not disturb. Sit quietly in your chair, resting your back. If you can, close your eyes. Watch your breath flow in and out for 3 or 4 breaths as you breathe diaphragmatically.

Now, think of a time when you were really happywhen the feeling of laughter and contentment bubbled through your being. As you breathe, let the feeling of contentment and joy permeate your body and mind. Now, visualize yourself addressing the next problem as you smile at your co-workers. See yourself bringing lightness and clarity to the problem. Breathe a few more relaxing breaths before you go about your business.

If you find yourself getting caught up in the problems of the day, remember to smile and feel joy within you by taking control.

"I have noticed that folks are generally as happy as they make up their minds to be." --Abraham Lincoln
