Get going on this assignment
1) Every MORNING journal 5 positive things. They can be anything
you want, things that happened already or things that you wish to
2) Call your Positivity Partner and tell him/her those 5 positive things. He/she should do the same with you.
3) Say how great your day is going to be and wish the same for your Positivity Partner.
4) After your chat, journal how you feel in that moment. Keep the
Positivity Journal with you all day. You can glance at it if you are
feeling down or write more positive things that happened to you that
day. *Note* after a while you may have a noticeably greater number of
positive things going on in your life than before. It may be more than
the 5 things you share with your Positivity Partner, so it may not be
easy to pick the top 5.
5) At the end of October, you
should have 155 positive things to share in your Positivity Journal and
pages full of positive feelings, changes, and experiences.
On the following check-in dates, write in your journal the changes
you have noticed in yourself and your Positivity Partner. Each date
send a brief email with the changes to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
to be counted for your grade.
