Recalling happy events is known to increase resilience and feelings of optimism.
Step 1: Take some time to find an object in the landscape that triggers a happy memory for you.
It could be a rock, people, the shape of the clouds or something in the view. Or your happy memory could be triggered by a sound, smell or a feeling like the sun on your skin. Don’t try too hard just look around and see what grabs your attention.
Step 2: How does your object remind you of that memory? Now spend a minute savouring the memory, don’t just remember it, relive it with all your senses.
Step 3: Give gratitude for that experience and the many more happy experiences still to come.
