Sweet puppy

Good afternoon!

Do you remember the inspiration book I mentioned in an earlier post? I can’t quite recall the title, but the morning and evening rituals mentioned in the book are crystal clear to me. It’s funny how things work. 🙂

So let’s talk rituals.  I am trying to get in the habit of saying three good things that happened during the day, right before bed. You could also do this while brushing your teeth, after your prayers, or even with another family member to end the day on a wonderfully positive note.

It takes time to build a conditioned behavior. So pairing a new behavior or thought with an already ingrained one can help! Allow yourself time to mentally (and physically) prepare for the new behavior.
For example while brushing my teeth in the morning and at night, I am going to think of three good things that have happened during the day.

You could also do this when washing the dishes, cleaning house, walking, sitting at a stop light, stretching, turning on your computer etc….

What are your ideas? I know you can do this!
