Inner Child Healing Exercise: Three Good Things
Updated: Aug 18, 2022
Making shifts and changes in our life can begin with simple steps. Even small changes in our daily life can have profound effects. They build up like a rolling snowball.
This small Inner Child healing exercise is an easy way to take advantage of that fact. With just a few moments in your day, you can shift your focus to what's good and working, and away from what's bad and not going right.
Ready? Here's the exercise: write down three good things that happened to you today.
Yep, that's it. That's the whole Inner Child healing exercise! The “good things” can be very small events, like feeling the warm sunshine on your face, calling a friend, or just watching a favorite TV show.
But here's the challenge and crucial secret ingredient: keep it up for 2 weeks (14 days) and see the impact it has. Type your answers each day, or write in a journal.
•One good thing that happened today . . .
•A second good thing that happened today . . .
•A third good thing that happened today . . .
