What Went Well This Week

My Explanation of The What Went Well Reframing Exercise

What went well exercise, Martin Seligman author or Flourish developed  to help people flourish. The idea is to reframe our mindset from negative to positive.

The exercise consists of writing out three things that went well (insert your time frame: eg day, week yesterday) and then explain why they happened or why they were important to you.

Physically write down the 3 items and your story for each one on paper. This isn’t a formal journaling exercise unless you want it to be. It’s quite acceptable to throw your work away once you complete the exercise or save them in one form or another.
