Over the next 7 days, pay attention to:
- How often you say negative things
- â€œThis sucksâ€, â€œthis is dumbâ€, â€œI hate ______â€, â€œFMLâ€
- How often you think negatively of yourself:
- â€œIâ€™m fatâ€, â€œIâ€™m uglyâ€
- â€œIâ€™m so dumbâ€, â€œIâ€™ll never be successfulâ€, â€œno one likes meâ€
- Each day, try to find at least one thing positive that happened or that you are grateful for. This could be anything from having a great best friend to seeing a cute dog on the way to class.
Paper: You neednâ€™t be overly personal with the written portion. In short, what was this experience like? Were you surprised at your tendency to be a positive or negative person? If you found yourself being frequently negative, were you able to change your mindset once you noticed it?
