Cultivating Happiness, Part 2
Try this journal exercise:
Research shows that when we build optimism about our future, we become more motivated to work toward it – making it more likely to become our reality.
Imagine your life going as well as it possibly can, then write about this new vision. Fill it with as many details as you can. Draw a picture, or make a collage. You might be surprised what you create.
Research suggests this helps your imagination determine what steps you can take to walk toward your best future. When we take an action step to embody what we want to create, it has a way of clearing our path. It will also help you feel better in the present, because you feel hope.
