20 minutes of work for 12 hours of gain sounds like a great ROI to me. #cultivatinghappiness

Confession: I forgot my rule about not communicating with people when I'm angry and sent an angry text this weekend. I regretted it moments later. Now I have a new rule..don't communicate about anything that involves difficult emotions via text. This article helped me come to that conclusion...it's all part of #cultivatinghappiness in my life.

Great tools for #cultivatinghappiness here! Quick tip if you don't want to read the entire article. Write a "thank-you" letter to someone in your life you've never properly thanked. It will make them feel good, strengthen your bond with them and you'll immediately get an increase in your own happiness and a decrease in depressive symptoms. Gratitude is a VERY powerful thing. Thanks for reading :)

Dealing with emotional triggers is a huge piece of my #cultivatinghappiness project. Check out the full article if you have time, it's a great read. 
Here are Five Healthier Ways to Practice Awareness When You are Triggered:

1. Zip your lip. Don’t react right away. Don’t speak, or write a reply until you’ve had a chance to feel and reflect.

2. Step into the person’s shoes. We’re really all one. Use the interaction or feedback you get as a learning tool. Allow yourself to understand where the other person is coming from and that nobody has to be right for things to work out.

3. Notice the feelings. If you practice feeling what’s going on inside of you when you’re triggered you’ll usually notice that you’re creating a mental story to go along with the sensation. Separate the two and just bring the feeling into your heart.

4. Don’t take anything personally. It’s never about you. Ever. Realize that someone’s feedback or comment about you is coming from their own unique lenses they watch the world through. It’s just another way to look at things. It doesn’t have to be personal.

5. Respond from your heart not your head. If and when you respond in the instance where you’ve been triggered, make sure it’s only after you’ve done the first four steps, and that you’re responding from a heart-centered place. Why? It’s all about love baby. If we want it we must give it, no matter how someone is judging us.

The planet depends on the evolution of our awareness. Wake up—even when you’re hanging out on Facebook. It matters.
