¿La fórmula de la felicidad?

felicidad

Se me han acabado las vacaciones y, como me pasa casi todos los años por estas fechas, me paso los primeros días de vuelta a la rutina pensando en cómo conservar parte de la energía, la paz y la felicidad de mis días de vacaciones. Así es como me he topado una charla de de Shawn Achor sobre la psicología positiva, el éxito y la felicidad:

«La mayoría siguen esta fórmula: «Si trabajo más duro, tendré más éxito. Si tengo más éxito, seré más feliz […] Pero científicamente está mal […] cada vez que tienes un éxito, la meta cambia».

Tal cual. Así soy yo: cuando me propongo algo y lo consigo enseguida me propongo algo más difícil todavía. En vez de disfrutar de lo que he logrado siento que sigue sin ser suficiente y debo aspirar a algo mejor.

«Pensamos que hay que tener éxito y luego ser felices. Pero el cerebro trabaja en sentido opuesto […] el cerebro en positivo funciona mucho mejor que cuando está negativo, neutro o estresado. Se eleva la inteligencia, la creatividad, los niveles de energía».

Y una piensa que vale, que todo eso es muy bonito y suena genial, pero que si fuera capaz de ser positiva y sentirme optimista porque sí no estaría leyendo sobre la felicidad y la psicología positiva a la 1 de la madrugada de un martes en un intento desesperado de olvidar que el despertador sonará en menos de 7 horas.

¿Cómo me convierto en una persona más feliz?

Lo que Shawn Achor propone es entrenar al cerebro igual que entrenarías al cuerpo en el gimnasio para eliminar ese michelín que se quedó enquistado por culpa del turrón de Navidad. Si consigues ser más optimista, aumentará tu dopamina, que «no solo te hace sentir más feliz, sino que también activa los centros de aprendizaje permitiéndote adaptarte al mundo de manera diferente». Vamos, lo que decía mi abuela: que la vida no es tanto lo que te pase, sino cómo te lo tomes.

Para este entrenamiento cerebral algunos ejercicios recomendados serían:

  1. Emular a Samanta Villar y escribir durante 21 días tres cosas que te hayan pasado por las que te sientas agradecido. Se supone que así el cerebro se acostumbra a funcionar buscando lo positivo antes que lo negativo. Lo voy a probar porque dedicar 5 minutos al día a esto me parece razonable y sé que podré hacerlo.
  2. Si dispones de más tiempo, otro ejercicio sería escribir sobre una única experiencia positiva a modo de diario.
  3. Hacer ejercicio (no me voy a autoengañar: si, hoy por hoy mi felicidad depende de que me ponga a hacer ejercicio de forma remotamente regular, voy a morir triste, sola y atrofiada dentro de muy pocos años).
  4. Meditar, algo que no he probado nunca, pero que cada vez me llama más la atención.
  5. Llevar a cabo actos aleatorios de bondad. Esto, que puede sonar muy a catequesis y misa de 11, es una verdad como un templo. ¿No nos pasa a todos que cuando hacemos algo bueno por otra persona nos sentimos mejor con nosotros mismos?

Aquí tenéis la charla completa con subtítulos en castellano:
