First step:

Say 1 best thing that happened today


1. Today, as soon as you get back home, tell your family or roommate the best thing that happened that day. Do this once this week.
2. Next week, tell the best thing twice.
3. Keep increasing the number of times you say the best thing that happened that day, until you share something positive every day.

Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Same time is key. And it is an easy one, if you come back home every day on the same time, as soon as you step through the door, it’s time to share the positivity. Soon, it will be part of your routine and hence – a habit.
✓ Trigger your mind. Walking through the threshold of your home is a great mental trigger to let your mind know it’s time to share positivity.
✓ Let the app help. Set a reminder on this app to ring you just before you get home that it’s time to share the best event today. You may also track your progress on the calendar of this app.
✓ Reward yourself. Once you’ve gone a week of sharing the best things that happened to you, reward yourself by taking your family or friends to dinner and sharing the positive experiences with them and take in theirs as well. See how your relationship benefited from your new, positive habit.
✓ Celebrate small victories. Every time you perform this habit, congratulate yourself! Say “I’m awesome” or “I’m so cool” out loud and with a smile on your face.

Tips for beginners:

✓ Prepare before you share. Even the smallest thing can be a positive in your mind, if you tell it well and think of it that way. On your way home, pick an event and prepare it similar like you prepare for a speech. It will help you share your experience easier.
✓ Don’t be fake. If something bad happened that day and you want to share for comfort, do that, of course. Don’t keep it bottled in. Still try starting the conversation with the positive and only then share the negative.
✓ Share with those that understand. Whoever you’re living with, if circumstances are not favorable, do try and pick a person who would be willing to listen to your small daily victories and encourage you further. Nothing worse than someone raining on your parade.
✓ Listen back. If the person you’re sharing with has something to say of their own, do make time to listen to them back. A favor for a favor.
