Take a Break: and remember what went right

June 14, 2010 by JoLynne Lyon

Did you hear something funny? Add it to your list of what went right today.

List the good things that have occurred today, for example:

Did you survive the day?
Did you hear something funny?
Did you get through the day without calling 911?

Perhaps you talked to someone who made you smile, or read something that made you think. Maybe you coaxed a smile from somebody else.

Did you call a friend, neighbor, or relative for help and they came?
Or did someone else cook a meal, or call to check on you?

You choose the good things you will remember about today. List them all!
Savor for 5 minutes, then hug yourself.

Good job!
