Why we need to acknowledge our positives?

How to make the list?

Make a list of the positive aspects of yourself, including all your good characteristics, strengths, talents, and achievements, and record them on the worksheet or journal.

When you are writing something positive in your journal, make sure you-

1. Set aside a special time to commit to the task and carry it out. Don’t do it on the run,

2. Write them down on the worksheet provided or in your special journal, Write your positive qualities in your journal or worksheet

3. There is no limit. Exhaust all avenues and brainstorm as many ideas as possible. If you run out of steam, take a break. Come back later to it over the course of a few days, until you have a substantial list of your positives.

4. Get help if you feel comfortable to do so. someone whom you know would be supportive of you doing this, he maybe your family member or friend.

5. Is important that you re-read the things you write in your journal, reading them over and over with care and consideration. Reflect on what you have written at the end of the day, week, or month.
