Want to be happier? Try the 15-15 technique.

One thing I’ve learned from my studies in neuroplasticity (i.e., how learning changes the anatomy of the brain) is that in order to change a brain-habit you must practice a new behavior (being happy, for example). And if you don’t know how to be happy, simply act “as-if” you’re happy. Do this for 15 minutes a day for 15 weeks. Give it a shot, you’ve got nothing to lose, except your unhappiness.
