“Magic Gratitude Challenge” Day 2 – The Magic Rock



Today’s practice involves thinking back on your day, selecting the BEST, HAPPIEST thing that happened and then reviewing it with gratitude. Select a rock from outside or any crystal. Set it by your bed. At the end of the day, think of your happiest moment, while holding the rock and then when you are done say, “Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”


I first learned about the principle of reinforcing your best moment from Science of Happiness Harvard researcher, Shawn Achor. (That’s a link to the video I first watch that introduced me to his work. He also has numerous best selling books.) He found that if, at the end of the day, you write out the best moment of the day, it reinforces the positive experience, firing neurons and making your brain more prone for happiness.


You are LITERALLY changing your neurotransmitters to have happier wiring. Pretty cool!

Here are today’s happy, gratitude assignments:


Write a list of 10 new things you are grateful for and why. At some point during the day read your list aloud and after each item say, “Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”


If you have the book, read the inspiration for Day 2. This is posted daily on Empowering Your Life FB Group


Set your “magic rock” by your bed.


At the end of the day, think back on all that happened and select the BEST MOMENT.

Hold your rock and re-live that BEST MOMENT of the day.

Then say, “Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”


In the comment section below, please share one best moment OR gratitude OR experience you have had so far.


When you share your good, it lets other benefit as well.
