Written by Lisa Jillanza

Continued from Part I…)


  • Look around — notice those areas that need a make-over. We often get stuck in habitual patterns of behavior. Life is constantly evolving — things that used to work may no longer. Adjust accordingly.
  • Avoid wearing all-grey clothes to work as this color is associated with passivity, low involvement. and a lack of energy.
  • Make Sunday your personal-care day: get a massage, a mani-pedi, extra sleep, a delicious brunch, or catch up on leisure reading.
  • Wake up 15 minutes earlier than normal during the week. Moving slowly and purposefully sets you up for a calm, peaceful day where you are in control. Not the other way around.
  • Leave drama where it belongs: On Broadway or at the movies. Your central nervous system will thank you.
  • Steer clear of jerks. And while you’re at it, don’t be a jerk yourself!
  • Think faster. As counter intuitive as it may seem, mulling, over-analyzing, and delaying decisions doesn’t help. Trust yourself and decide, already.
  • Remember that happinessis a habit. You can rewire your emotional template every day. Let these tips guide you.
  • When distraction interferes with productivity, try the Pomodoro Technique: Work for 25 minutes, then take a break for 5 minutes. Repeat this sequence two more times. On the fourth round, take a longer break. Having an egg timer or mobile device helps keep track of time.
  • Dance, skip, tell a joke, or do something you normally wouldn’t do that adds whimsy, spontaneity, and fun to your day.
  • Focus on solutions rather than problems.
