Mental Workout of the Day:
What I Like…
Most days we find ourselves talking to others, or even engaging in self-talk, about what it is we do not like. Are minds are constantly finding ways to engage in our problems and after enough time, we forget what it is we even enjoy doing. For today’s mental exercise we will reverse that process…
Grab a piece of paper and expect to write for roughly 10 minutes. At the top of the paper write, “Things I Like…” and begin. Write down whatever it is you like. This doesn’t have to be anything in particular or something where you are over thinking. Simply write down things that you like. It could be “I like having sex…I like clouds…I like going in the sun.” Just start writing things you like. After a few minutes of this you should find yourself feeling better and recognizing why you like those things. Feel free to write down why you like each thing as well if it feels like it could also be fun. Do this until the paper is full of things you like or until you feel uplifted and more joyful.
