I found some of the studies she mentions particularly interesting (and am going to adjust a smartphone habit accordingly).

Write Down What You’re Grateful For

“Scientists performed an experiment in which they asked one group of people to write down the things that they were grateful for on a weekly basis, while the other group recorded hassles or neutral life events.

Start Today: At the end of each day, write down one great thing that happened. Use a notebook or keep a digital log.” — Happify
