3 Positives exercise - keeping at it!

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

I tried it - for 12 consecutive days. It was actually nice. I found it to be a refreshing way to take a 5-10 minute break during my day.

Flourish - 3 Positives exercise working out

As I drive to work, I started listening to Flourish by Martin Seligman. He is the psychologist who started the whole positive psychology movement. One of his first suggestions is a little exercise I am working on ... and it seems to have some good results - of helping me stay more positive.
