• Spend less time focusing on the details.

    Those who take a positive approach to life, without getting hung up on the details, live the happiest lives.

    • When you spend time worrying about a remark someone said, a look a friend gave you, or an unsavory incident from your day, you’re subtracting from your happiness factor.

    • Rather than analyzing every segment of an exchange you had with your spouse or a colleague, focus on the positive aspects instead.
