Description

Write positive things. Write about the good things that have happened to you. Write about the good things that you want to happen or plan to do. Write from the heart, with passion and conviction.

You can also write about the good things that you have done, and we all do many good things every day, even if it is restraint in not doing bad things.

Write with affection about the people you love, how you feel about them, what you do with them and your hopes for them and your future relationship with them.

Believe what you write. See it as an affirmation of how lucky and good you are and how nice things can and do happen to you.

Write regularly. An easy and effective approach is to write three positive things before you go to bed that have happened to you each day. They do not have to be large, but they do have to be positive.

You can write with a pen or with a keyboard, privately or publicly, for example in a blog.

Discussion

We all have positive and negative things in our live; whether we think positively or negatively depends largely on what we pay attention go. If your thoughts are often negative, positive writing forces you to consciously recognize that positive things do happen to you.

Writing positive things also uses the consistency principle, where your subconscious will try to align with your external actions.
