Living Well Assignments

I just got back from the Living Well, a support group for cancer patients. The discussions are based on increasing our joy, satisfaction and contentment. And enhance our sense of meaning and purpose in life. Each week we go home with an assignment.

Last week’s assignment was to slow down and savour one task each day that I would normally rush through. Well, I didn’t do so well ... I read the sheet and said I’d do it later ... which I didn’t. 

This week’s assignment is called the ‘three good things’ task. We are to write down three things that went well during that day. The idea is to do this daily for the week. Then we are to reflect on why did this or that good thing happen.

I’m hoping to do better on this assignment than the last...

I think I'm going to have to wait until chemo is over to start doing this. It's hard to think of three things that went well when you spend your day on the couch trying to breathe! :)

Don't be so hard on yourself! I try to say that I am going to blog every day and I NEVER get around to that, or reading posts of others!

I just hope you are enjoying whatever you are doing each day!
