Positive Tetris Effect
Say adapting something simple in your life. Something simple but good. Something that is fundamentally enlightened your soul, but still simple. The things that are fundamentally simple, but specific. And you do them on a daily basis. (Did my words make these simple things complicated? Oh well, now I got your attention.)
Now grab a journal. Take a few minutes. Write something about the things you are grateful for, over the last 24 hours.
After you’re done with gratification, write something about physical workout that keep you moving and active.
Then write something about meditation you do today. Prayers included.
Finally write something about kindness you do today.
Still wondering? Here’s an example from my log today:
“Gratitude: I’m grateful for having friends that were indeed cheerful and we have some good laughs when hang together. I’m grateful to live in Putrajaya where every weekend there must be something going on. Yesterday we had this ‘walk the talk’ event to show support for World Hunger Relief.
Exercise: I run my usual track and completed the Power Yoga sequence that I’ve been pursuing for quite some days. Awesome!
Meditation: I took some meditation break after prayers 3 times today. Plus, the Power Yoga helps me finding my powerful center.
Act of Kindness: I helped my mom getting her groceries. Makes it easier for her.”
Journal log about good things on a daily basis can help in directing our mind scanning for the good things and the good opportunity ahead. Not ignoring the bad things, but to make the bad things seem obsolete. After all, you create your own future, aren’t you?
