Make life better

Today I was at the Mediation Center and ran across this list. It is the most comprehensive I have ever seen. Anyone should be able to find something on here that they can do to make their day better. I am appending it to my bulletin board.

We often think there is nothing we can do. Usually because we really don’t want to do anything except feel bad. Sometimes we have to force ourselves to do something to improve things. It may take strength to get going. There is always something that will help. See if you can find some things on this list.

  1. This is a fantastic list! My top choices would be hiking, reading, time in nature, a library visit, time with loved ones, gardening, cooking and being with animals. So many small things that can bring on so much joy. Thank you for this reminder. 🙂

  2. I went to a few counseling sessions when I was going through my last divorce. The counselor really wanted me to get out and do stuff and not withdraw. She asked me what it was that I liked to do for fun, and I hate to say it but there was a long, quiet pause. I hadn’t been doing anything for fun in quite a while. She suggested I put things down on little pieces of paper, fold them up and put them in a jar, and when I could think of nothing to do, pull one out, open it up, and do whatever I had written down. It was a good strategy, but I never had a list this long 🙂
