I try my best to start my week on a positive note.

That includes going through my Facebook news feed and Twitter timeline to delight on my friends’ successes, laugh at their silly notes, read inspiring articles and (sometimes) hide/mute* overly negative folks.

Last week, I found this awesome video on my timeline which was too good not to share.

The Science of Happiness – An Experiment in Gratitude

I am not much of a demonstrative guy so luckily for me I was not part of this show, and did not have to call the influential people in my life. However, since I trust the kid in the lab suit ( watch the video to get it 😉 ) I decided to email those people instead. 😉

How about you? Do you have influential people in your life whom you want to thank? Why not try this experiment and let me know how that goes for you.


* To avoid the drama [read related story here: Unfriended], I try not to unfriend anyone.
