Want a simple, easy, refreshing way to start each day? Keep a journal or a few 3×5 cards on your nightstand or in a cozy writing spot and write down these three things each morning . . .
- I will let go of . . .
- I am grateful for . . .
- I will focus on . . .
Mine for today are:
- … my need to be right – about anything!
- … homemade Greek yogurt fruit salad, sooo good!
- … adding another 5 minutes cardio session to my day.
The process is quick and uplifting. I have been listing my “3 a Day” for the past two weeks and I love it. It gives my day a bit more structure and reminds me that each day is a new day.
Author and speaker Neil Pasricha described the idea as “The two-minute morning practice” in his latest book, “You Are Awesome.” He sees it as a “mental release” and a way of cleansing our anxieties and crystallizing our thoughts. I agree and call it “3 a Day,” because like a vitamin, it is good for us! Pasricha also noted, “The process helped me sort, clarify, and confirm my feelings. And, it ultimately helped me move forward.”
Pasricha’s great insights can be helpful for all of us. Give “3 a Day” a try and let me know how it goes.
