3 Positives exercise - keeping at it!

Wondering if anyone else tried the 3 Positives & Why approach, discussed in my last blog posting?

This exercise is to get a small journal, and each day - write down three positive things that you did or that happened today. It could be as simple as "it was a sunny and warm…
