As a CEO, Dr. Pierce knows how hard it is to stay calm and happy 24-7, so she devised a get-happy-quick plan to help herself and others stay calm while managing their career and life.
1. Release and let it go
Remove the tangible and intangible things from your life that seem to add clutter. Clear your heart, mind and home of everything that is stopping you from feeling good about yourself and your life. This can be simply cleaning out a closet or getting rid of any unused or broken items. A clean mind and space can create a wave of freshness and happiness for you daily.
RELATED JOY-- Just Own Yourself
2. Make a happiness wheel
Story board what happiness looks like to you. Whenever I have clients say, "I'm just not happy" I assign them to create a happiness wheel where their picture goes in the middle. Then pasted images of what makes them happy circles around them. The happiness wheel is symbolic of everything you love encircling your life. The results are profound. In a short period of time, all the right stuff just starts showing up!
3. Create a vacuum for happiness
If you want to form a new positive outlook, the first place to look is at who you are around, what conversations are you having and where are you going daily. Get rid of things you don't want, like toxic relationships. Make room for what you do want, such as exciting new friendships that encourage you and challenge you to become your best.
4. Create a happiness affirmation.
Your words literally have creative power and the ability to transform your life. You can speak life, happiness, and prosperity into physical existence by using your own heart-felt expressed words. Create a positive affirmation that revives your spirit and speaks to the life you want to live. It can be something simple as saying: "I am happy and I easily and effortlessly attract situations, opportunities and positive, uplifting people into my life that cause me to have a flood of goodness daily!"
5. Meditate 15-20 minutes every day.
Meditation can be a life-changing force in your life. The act of solitude can solve many problems…when I was going through a rough divorce in my twenties, I would rise early and escape to my sweet spot. That is where I would cleanse my mind of negative thoughts and visualize my happy future that I am living in now.
6. Keep a gratitude journal.
Take a few minutes each night to pull out your journal and list 10 or more things that you can say made your day amazing, regardless of circumstances. Thankfulness always puts in motion more good things coming your way.
You get more of what you're looking for when you focus on things that make you happy. Close your night with a heart full of gratitude and prayer, and you will generate days full of goodness!
7. Keep happiness files.
What topics make you hacppy to talk about, read about and hear about? Exploring, growing, hunting and gathering information in congruence with your life purpose creates joy. Get 5 to 7 file folders that you can fill up with information, quotes and discoveries that are in the categories that control your most dominant thoughts. These files will keep you focused on all things that keep you happy and excited to pursue your passions.

Change scenery, change perspective
Take a break from home or your office and find a new view. Too much of the same thing causes dullness! A short weekend trip away, sitting in a nice cafe, or getting in the sun can lift your spirits. Finding a new view gives you new perspective that inspires change and exhilaration! Go book yourself a mini trip to reset your motivation!
