Little by Little, Fill Yourself with Good: Rick Hanson’s TED How-To

Psychotherapist Chris Eldredge sent us this powerful TED talk of neuropsychologist Dr. Rick Hanson‘s simple technique for transforming our hardwired negative patterning (also known as Negativity Bias). We thought 13+ minutes might be too long for our busy selves, but Hanson’s talk flies by, and we found ourselves with a useful practice we can do anywhere, anytime.

The gist: People more readily TAKE IN negative things that happen to them; incorporating the positive takes a simple 20-second technique. Although the back story is illuminating, you can cut to the chase at 7:12. (Video link HERE.)

In case you need reminders of Hanson’s basic method, we’ve posted them here:
