Another exercise I do most mornings is gratitude journaling. It takes 5-15 minutes to write down 3 things you're grateful for, such as:
• A relationship
• Something material like having a beautiful home
• Something simple like having enough food to eat or having a delicious cup of coffee this morning, or how beautiful the weather is today
• Something big like your career
Over time, these 'exercises' provide tremendous benefits and shift the way your mind works, and what it focuses on. Please let us know what you're doing to increase happiness!
