I journal a lot. I “micro-journal”, putting short thoughts throughout the day of what I am feeling, what is going on or what I am thinking. I try to write what I am grateful for and have a daily reminder for that.
My friend Richard, who is on the front line of the addiction epidemic, posted this short video about 3 good things. He says that this is NOT a grateful journal, but a way of writing about 3 good things that happened during the day.
I love this idea and have added it to my journal routine. Stop at the end of the day and think of three good things that happened to you. Listen to Richard explain it below.
