Did you know that reflections, raisins and red can all boost your confidence?
So, to start with reflections. Shawn Achor, a Harvard lecturer, found that engaging in only one small positive habit every day for at least three weeks can have a lasting impact on optimism, general wellbeing and life satisfaction. During a study, a group of tax managers at KPMG in New York were asked to engage in one of 5 activities every day that correlate with positive change. Four of these five activities involved some form of reflection, or focused thinking.
