Writing down 3 good things every day

September 13, 2015


Every evening, I try to write 3 good things that happened that day in my notebook before I go to sleep for the night. That way I fall asleep with some happy thoughts fresh in my mind, even if I have had some challenging things to deal with that day.

I started a fresh notebook for September. It was a TK Maxx bargain, but the paper is lovely to write on.

This idea was inspired by Karin and her Embrace Happy facebook community. Lots of people share their 3 good things online, but I prefer to use a notebook for the following reasons:

  • I like to keep my good things a bit more private, rather than being concerned about what might seem impressive on facebook
  • using a notebook as it means that I am not looking at a screen before I go to bed,
  • and it is easy to look back through what I have written on previous days.

Mostly, my 3 good things are small pleasures, a nice meal, a walk, a book, time spent with my husband and son. All in all this is a really great way for me to collect moments, not things.
