Day 4:  Remembering the Past with Positivity
Day 4: Remembering the Past with Positivity

January 04, 2021

When you complete a big accomplishment, and you are asked how you did, do you normally focus on what you did wrong...or do you celebrate what you did  well?

I admit that I have a habit of dwelling on what I didn't do as well as I had wanted.  Sometimes I even get on a fixation loop of replaying my mistakes in my head.  But what I have learned is that this is not a productive behavior and can lead to anxiety and depression.   

What I have started to do is focus on what I did well and acknowledge that first. Then instead of looking at my errors as mistakes, I view them as areas of improvement instead of calling them failures.  For every area of improvement that I identify, I assign a new action or make a plan to improve so that maybe I don't repeat that behavior or pattern in the future.

Today I want you to reflect on 2020.  Push those negative thoughts aside.

-George J Seidel

Welcome to Day 2 of my 30 Day Challenge: Cultivate Creativity and Nurture Joy.  Today we will look at connecting with yourself using a sensory scan.

To begin this challenge, simply sit down.  You can do this exercise anywhere you are that is a safe place to just sit and exist for a few moments.
