How to Make a Happiness List

Materials

• Paper
• Pencil

Directions

Sometimes we tend to remember the bad things that happen to us more than the good things. Write down 5 things that happened yesterday. Read your list over. Did you remember 5 good things, 5 bad things or some of each? Whatever you wrote down, you chose it to write down. You can practice remembering good things and feelings and letting go of bad ones. Every day, write down 5 things that happened which you felt good about. Write what happened and how you felt about it. The best time is before you go to bed at night. These are your "happiness lists" and you can look them over any time you are feeling down or unhappy. Your lists will help you do more things that create happiess and will also help you collect and store good feelings.
