Counting Our Blessings
Gratitude Workout (Google-WWW-Yahoo)
This MINDFULGym tool involves training our mind to pay attention to the positive aspects of life, e.g. strength, blessings, good deeds, accomplishments, success.
Instead of allowing our mind to generate thoughts randomly, we can purposefully cultivate positive thoughts. Research in positive psychology has shown that this helps in rewiring the neurons in the brain to stay positive, healthy, and happy.
We tend to remember negative memories more easily; they’re like Velcro strap – very sticky. Happy memories require more effort in recalling them; they’re like Teflon pan – non-stick. For this reason, we should schedule time for daily Gratitude Workout.
Try to ‘Google’ (mentally search or recall) 3W’s (what went well) every day and ‘Yahoo’ (rejoice or celebrate) the good things in life. In other words, deliberately try to pay attention to the positive things in life, e.g. strength, blessings, good deeds, accomplishments, success. See below for examples.
