Feeling happier

I am generally an upbeat person. I try to smile a lot and I try to focus on the good in everything. As a result, my interest was peaked when I opened up Yahoo! this morning and saw an article about being happier.

In the article, a motivational speaker was given an assignment to think of three good things that happened that day and analyze why they happened. This activity alone was to help ease her worries adn make her a happier person and apparently it worked!

I don't know about you, but it sounds like it's worth a try to me!

I do something similar with my kids when I tuck them in at night. I the last thing I ask them is, "What was your favorite thing about today?" They ask me the same thing right back, too. I like to leave them with a happy memory as they drift off to sleep. I hope this has helped them to be happy kids!

What are three good things that have happened to you today? Post a comment and let everyone know!
