This is a great idea! I am re-posting this from the Go Live Wellness Facebook page:
Tonight I begin my first night of the 3 W’s -‘What Went Well’.
This practice was shared by Dr. Sara Gottfried, author of ‘The Hormone Cure’ – which currently is rocking my world of wellness in a very good way!
Here’s the practice:
1. At the end of today, sit down with your journal, iPhone or any piece of paper. Write down 3 things that went well during your day and why. You might write that you had a nice visit with a girlfriend, or that you had fun singing the latest will.i.am song with your child.
2. Repeat this every night for one week.
That’s it. Simple, right? But the data from Professor Seligman show that when you do this for one week, it raises your happiness levels. And that happiness stays with you — people in his study were still happier 6 months later!
So… what went well today? Tell yourself every night for one week – and beyond!
