While you may not be homeless or food
insecure, one can still be grateful for those privileges. Be
grateful and send loving kindness (and any generous
gifts) to those who may be experiencing those hardships during the
holidays. Did you know one cannot be in despair
the same time one is experiencing gratitude?
This exercise was created by psychologist
Martin Seligman. He is considered an expert on depression and happiness
and has been called the "father of Positive Psychology." As one of the
preeminent psychologists of the 20th century, he is Director of the
University of Pennsylvania Positive Psychology Center, Zellerbach Family
Professor of Psychology in the Penn Department of Psychology and
Director of the Penn Master of Applied Positive Psychology program
(MAPP). Basically, this is a gratitude exercise one practices daily.
Here is the simple Three Good Things exercise:
Every night, just before you go to bed,
think back on your day.
Think of three (3) good things that went
well for you that day.
Write them down. Reflect on each of them.
Remember to do the third step, as this is
important in grounding the experience in the physical. Here are some
questions to ask yourself:
What did I accomplish today that I am
Who did I help today? (act of good,
generosity or random act of kindness)
What big or small important deadline did I
What lingering task did I complete?
Did anyone praise me, my work or
compliment me today?
Did I bring a smile to someone's face
What good did I see in the world today?
It is said if one repeats this exercise for
21 consecutive days, a positive habit forms to neutralize our
human tendencies to always dwell on the negative. This is taking
advantage of the newly discovered neuroplasticity
properties of the brain. This would be a good
way to alleviate despair and depression in these uncertain times.
Russell has done this to neutralize his tendency to go into a depression
from his mTBI (mild Traumatic Brain Injury). It helps keep him off
medication and decreases his need for
Remember, the holidays are not about how many gifts one got this year
compared to last year. It is not about whether you got the latest 'tech'
gadget. The holidays are not made worthwhile if we got the newest
fashion trend or accessory. The holidays (no matter what religion you
celebrate) is about caring, sharing and having gratitude.

(including 4-legged children), Happy Holidays!
