- What did I do today that I felt good about? What actions of mine gave me pleasure, joy and were meaningful?
- What did others do for me today? Did anybody tell me something nice about me or my work? Did someone lend me a service (asked or unsolicited)? Here I also ask myself how I responded to this attention and kindness.
- Finally, I ask if there was something that just happened and make me smile or happy. Maybe a joke on TV or a sight of an animal on a walk.
Originally a piece of advice from a senior colleague, it does help realise that there is much positive that happens in our lives. And not to let us focus on the negatives alone.
