Happy Bit: How Having a Vivid Vision Increases Positivity in Relationships
In this Happy Bit: “It all started with my son plopping a steaming (and HUGE) bowl of yummy goodness in front of me. He had cooked sweet potatoes, spinach, mushrooms, onions, hot dogs and a metric ton of garlic in some sizzling coconut oil… and it was AMAZING.”
Our massage table is covered – COVERED – in books from various podcast guests and things I ordered on Amazon months ago but failed to read. But since I discovered audio books from Audible, things are so much better! I can “read” again. 😉 Because I love them so much, I've teamed up with audible.com to offer you a free audio book. Grab yours at vibranthappybook.com. You’ll also get a free thirty-day membership, too. Sweet!
Now on to our Happy Bit.
It all started with my son plopping a steaming (and HUGE) bowl of yummy goodness in front of me. He had cooked sweet potatoes, spinach, mushrooms, onions, hot dogs and a metric ton of garlic in some sizzling coconut oil… and it was AMAZING.
For a nearly 16-year-old, this boy has mad skillz!
But sadly I tend to get more caught up in the fact he didn't empty the trash or clean his room.
Always the LACK, the scarcity…
When we stop and focus on the good, everything feels to much better, from our emotions to the entire tone of the relationship.
One way to focus even more on the good is to create a vivid vision of the future – to take the good things now and play them out and see exactly what they might look like in the future.
For example, maybe my son will be an amazing chef, or a fantastic cook for his family… one good thing leads to another, and when we create a vivid mental picture of all the goodness that could happen in the future, we train our brains to keep going. It's fun!
Also, I share how you can get your hands on the Self Care Toolkit.
Grab yours before it goes away…
Make it a great week!
