Self-Care for Parents: 3 Good Things
- What it is: Everyday, think about three good things and how you played a role in them.
- Why it works: Research has shown that our brains are predisposed to look for the negatives. This was a function that helped our ancestors pinpoint and avoid danger. What we pay attention to shapes our brain. By intentionally seeking out the good, we’re able to build resiliency and notice the good, rather than only seeing the challenging.
- Pro-tip: Make this a regular part of your conversations with your family and ask them to list three good things, too. It will deepen your relationships by getting a window into what matters to them.
