Do you know what your best possible self looks like?
No really. DO you know who you really are as your best possible self?
You can’t start living your best life without knowing where you want to go.
Professor Laura King created an exercise that has been shown to increase positive mood immediately. In her study, King asked participants to spend 20 minutes a day for 4 days writing best possible self in multiple domains of life. Participants who did so were found to have an increase in mood immediately following the exercise, and reported and higher levels of happiness several weeks later. Over the course of the following 5 months, these participants also experienced fewer physical ailments than participants in other groups.
Here’s what to do:
“Think about yourself in the future. Imagine that everything has gone as well as it possibly could. Think of this as the realization of all your life dreams. Now, write about what you imagined.” Do this for 4 consecutive days.
Like Yogi Berra said, “If you don't know where you are going, you'll end up someplace else.”
