I encourage my clients to spend 5 minutes (or more) acknowledging what they appreciate in that moment... even during difficult times it can be empowering. The Appreciation Audit as Dr. Clark refers to it in "What Happy People Know"- take a few minutes and acknowledge What do you appreciate today?
So far, I appreciate that the bottle of finger nail polish I spilled all over our cabinets and my shirt did not stain or ruin the finish of the cabinets! This was a new bottle that I knocked over. Shortly after that I went into the laundry room and knocked over the bottle of detergent and am grateful that it wasn't the bottle of bleach that was nearby. Whew!
I appreciate my good health. Cricket and I just returned from a great walk -- and I just am so grateful to be healthy and be able to enjoy the beauty of the day.
I appreciate my family. Super excited that soon we will be together for a week with our kids.
I appreciate and love our new sound system at work. The background music just brings me joy and peace and fun to dance around when its just me and Cricket in the office.
I love my little black shoes ... they are comfy and just go with everything. Once I find a favorite of something - I wear it out.
I appreciate that it is Cherry Topper Month at Arctic Circle ... that is my favorite flavor.
Anything you appreciate today?
