APRIL: “3 GOOD THINGS”

Write down 3 things you are thankful for.

For the next 30 days write down three things that you are thankful for. Nothing is too big or too small to note. Don’t overthink it! Write the first three things that come to mind. Try to think of three new things each day. There should be novelty to each item you right down daily.

Most of us do not naturally dwell on all of the good things in our lives. Our brains are hardwired to consider worst possible scenarios and remember negative experiences as a way to keep us safe. Gratitude is one way to counteract our natural negative influence and boost happiness and overall well-being, especially during periods of stress and uncertainty.

The good things you write down don’t necessarily have to be significant and something as simple as a really good cup of coffee is worth writing down. You may have trouble thinking of three things initially, but be consistent and try to do this every day for a month. You will likely find that you’ll have a hard time stopping at three things by the end of the month.

After you’ve finished this month’s Mini Challenge check it off on this year-long tracker. Keep track of how many Mini Challenges you complete to be eligible for a prize drawing at the end of the year! You do not need to report completion every month. Just keep track throughout the year and we will send out a reporting link at the end of 2020.
