“The power of this exercise often comes from writing down three good things that happened to you during the day. Here is the suggested practice:

  • At about the same time each day (I recommend the evening, just before bed), take about 10 minutes to write down three things that went well for you.
  • In addition to just jotting down what happened (e.g., “I finally finished a project I’d been procrastinating”) add some details, like what you did or said, or what others did or said.
  • Focus on your feelings. How did you feel when the good thing happened? How did you feel afterwards? How do you feel now?”
