Boost your happiness with the Happiness Journal Challenge!

Happiness Journal

We’re a happy bunch here at Ruby, and we like making others happy too. After all, we’re in the business of making personal connections! We take care to hire folks who enjoy making others’ days, as well as strive to foster happiness in our work environment. We celebrate successes, encourage staff to share affirmations through our “Ruby Raves,” and empower employees to spread joy to our clients through small acts of “WOW.” Additionally, we take the time each year to reflect on our own happiness and the power of positive thinking with the Happiness Journal challenge.

Ruby’s Happiness Journal originated from an article by The Happiness Advantage author Shawn Achor. In the article, Achor shared that a happy workforce leads to increased sales, productivity, and accuracy. After reading the article, CEO Jill Nelson created the Happiness Journal to encourage Rubys to focus on the positive aspects of their day. The first year of the challenge saw a 60% improvement in employee accuracy.

Now in its third year, the Happiness Journal challenge continues to significantly impact our staff. To participate, employees write one quick journal entry consecutively for 21 days. Each journal entry takes only a few minutes, and asks the following:

  • List three new things you’re grateful for that day
  • Write about a positive gratitude action for the day
  • Share a positive experience from the past 24 hours

The journal also encourages participants to exercise for 10 minutes and meditate for two minutes each day.

As Achor points out in the article, “happiness is a choice,” and we’d like to invite you to join in on our Happiness Journal challenge. Simply complete the form below and we will mail you a copy of our Happiness Journal.

We look forward to hearing your stories about the impact the Happiness Journal has had on your own life!
