Neil Pasricha ,the New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Awesome and The Happiness Equation suggests to follow this three-step exercise every morning to prime your brain for positivity.
His new journal Two-Minute Mornings contains his exact two-minute practice for starting each day.
And that’s really it! A simple two-minute exercise:
I will let go of . . .This is what we’ve been talking about. A confession. An anxiety.
I am grateful for . . .The things in your life you feel blessed for.
I will focus on...The last thing to write each morning is a little list of precisely three things you will do each day.
He advocates that we have around 1,000 waking minutes a day so it makes sense to take two of them to make the other 998 better.
