In our everyday lives, it is easy for us to get stuck on the things that go wrong or aren’t the way we want them to be. We take the good things that happen to us and our happy relationships for granted, which can make overlook opportunities that could help us feel good and get closer to others. Small things, like someone letting you go first in the queue or having a warm coat on a cold winter day, are important for everyday happiness. In this exercise, you train noticing, remembering and enjoying the good things in your life right now. Happiness psychologist Martin Seligman has seen that wellbeing increases in the present and in the long term by doing this. Reflecting on the reasons for the positive events means that you are ploughing the furrow in which gratitude will grow – which will also lead to increased wellbeing. Doesn’t that sound good? Test writing them down every night for a couple of weeks and see how your wellbeing is affected!
