A fantastic TED talk I saw recently focused on the relationship between attitude and mood. It is called The Three A’s of Awesomeness: Attitude, Awareness, and Authenticity. Neil Pasricha is the author of the “Best Blog in the World” 1000 Awesome Things turned New York Times Bestselling author of the  The Book of Awesome: Snow Days, Bakery Air, Finding Money in Your Pocket, and Other Simple, Brilliant Thing. His message is simple: There are so many things to be happy about. He acknowledges that things go badly. Whatever the future holds, he says, “It ain’t going to go according to plan.” But he has mastered the art of focusing on the positive and reading his daily description of awesome things. Focusing on what is going well is a good prescription for helping to have a better mood.
