“When you are fully charged, you get more done. You have better interactions. Your mind is sharp, and your body is strong. On days when you are fully charged you experience high levels of engagement and well-being. This charge carries forward, creating an upward cycle for those you care about.” Tom Rath, Are You Fully Charged.

Being successful, healthy, happy, and wealthy is the life desire of many people. To gain those results, we put in years of behavior and activity. There’s a new science that looks at how people are doing on a daily basis. Within a given day, people are asked whether they have emotions of happiness, stress, enjoyment, and other experiences. We live our lives moment by moment. Daily well-being is a different kind of success, than measures of life satisfaction (raising your income, your wealth, etc).
When Gallup asked people about their daily experience in 138 countries, Paraguay was the country with the highest “positive experience” score. In fact, four of the top five countries on this daily well-being index were at the bottom of the wealthiest countries list. In contrast, when life satisfaction was measured in the past, the wealthiest countries were at the top of the well-being lists.
What this research proves is that you can have a satisfying life today that gives you meaning, and well-being and a charge of energy without having to be wealthy or live in a wealthy country. More importantly, most of us have more capability to make choices on a daily basis to create meaning and happiness. You have instant results. You feel good today! That radiates out to the world around you, and the people you care about. Taking these small steps lead to small changes and overall life satisfaction. A triple win. These small changes can lead to the long term-outcomes that you want, while experiencing short term daily wins today.

You can create a lot more daily well-being in small steady steps. Read Are You Fully Charged ?
What others have said about the movie:
“Every minute of this film
is inspirational. The people on whom the film focuses enjoy the benefits of
good nutrition, exercise and sleep and are, therefore, fully charged. Many well
known professors were interviewed to give their slant on what makes a good
life. One fascinating research
project, presented by Nicholas Christakis of Yale demonstrates, by computer imaging, the fact that one person being nice to another or one person eating too much have much broader results than one would imagine. Similarly, the film touches on many lives, even on a beautiful garden on the edge of a highway and its creator.
I did love this film and will watch it often to get my charge.” Amazon Review by Jacqueline
