Day 4 of the Mindset Makeover!
I’m sharing some of the best Positive Psychology tools for 7-days to help you experience your greatness, and to feel that you are worthy of the self-care, life, and vitality that you dream about – because, honey, you are!
Write a “gratitude letter,” a kind of belated thank-you note to someone who has had a big impact on your life.
Detail the kindnesses, lessons, or support that person offered you and what it enabled in your life.
They can be alive or dead, and you can send it to them, read it to them in person or over the phone after it’s done, or just write it and experience the good vibes of gratitude as they flow.
Studies show that writing these letters give long-lasting mood boosts to the writer.
Traumatic experiences and negative memories tend to fade into the background for people who try these positive psychology techniques.
And when we feel better about our lives, strengths, and our relationships, emotionally charged binge eating tends to diminish, and we treat ourselves better with self-care and food choices. CLICK TO TWEET!
ONE THOUGHT: don’t do it if you don’t really feel it.
Forcing yourself to feel gratitude, when it’s not there, doesn’t make you feel any better. In fact, it can make you feel worse. If the gratitude juice isn’t flowing in you today, try writing about an experience that meant a lot to you, or about a time when you used your strengths and felt really strong in yourself. This will reconnect you with your innate gifts and feel just as good.
