(Continuation from a few days ago) I just got back from our team off-site. We closed the day with the "The Happy Secret to Better Work" video, before doing, not one, not two, but three of the items he suggests to "rewire the brain" to positivity. First, we had a gratitude circle, each person sharing one thing for which they were grateful that day. Second, we sat for 3 minutes in silence!!!!!! Third, I passed Smile Cards and we spoke about the power of anonymous acts of kindness with the encouragement to use at least one smile card within a week!!! I had never expected to find receptiveness for these activities in such a corporate environment. And I was super moved to find them not only receptive but embracing them. I am totally ROCKED!!!

    Mariette -- thanks for sharing this! Have also shared this at the public hospital I work for, where we are just now creating some measures to "Reconnect people to joy in the workplace" :-) And Bela, there's also Birju's experience, which maybe he'll share here too :-)
