Who would have thought that something so simple could have such a profound effect?
A little exercise that packs an emormous punch – it will help you to be positive and stay positive.
Three good things.
Try this exercise once a week to begin with. Look back over the week gone by and make a note of three good things that happened to you. They don’t have to be big things – anything from, getting a report in on time at work; meeting a friend for dinner, managing to work out five days straight. Be sure to write it down – if you can, write it in a journal rather than type on computer. The act of writing itself slows you down and allows you to think more deeply about you are writing. H
It works because, ‘what you focus on expands’. Each day you will start to look for the good things and the more you look for good things, the more good things you will find. You will very quickly expect to find good things. Once your mindset becomes more positive you will also start to overlook the little negative occurrences that would usually irritate you. this will increase your sense of wellbeing immeasurably.
Doing the exercise only once a week will ensure it remains a pleasure to do rather than becoming a chore.
Remember, “Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” The Dalai lama
This is one small action you can take that could just change your life.
