Take a Yes Day
Here’s the premise. Whatever anybody asks you, the answer is yes (except in cases of bodily harm). Can you take out the garbage, honey? Yes. Can we turn off all the lights in the kitchen and eat dinner by the glow of a green Star Wars light saber, Mom? Yes. Can we stay up until 4 a.m. watching reruns of Law & Order and eating popcorn with butter even though we have work tomorrow? Yes. Another way to think about it: Give yourself the rare treat of making people unexpectedly happy—including yourself.
