3 Habits to Happiness
Updated: Feb 5, 2020
Practical ideas from Dr. Pelcovitz’s talk at Great Park
1) Take a few minutes once a day to relish something that you usually hurry through. A walk, a meal or even a shower. Savour the moment. “Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were big things”.
2) Write down your dreams. This can help you recognize that it is in your power to work towards your valued goal. You –not external forces - have the power to make them come true.
3) Ritualize gratitude. Make a set time for it. For example, really think about the strengths of each of your children while blessing them on Friday night or when sitting around the table together. Once a week invite each family member to say something that they’re grateful for. Sing songs with kids where they add what they’re thankful for. Let gratitude become a habit.
