30 Happy Words!

If you are having trouble falling asleep at night (or getting back to sleep after the 3:33 am awakening), try going through the alphabet and thinking of a happy word that starts with each letter to describe yourself. Before each word, think in your head, “I am…”  If you think of more than one for each letter, it’s OK. This is your exercise. The only rules are the ones you choose!

You can also gift yourself with one word to use repeatedly throughout each day of the month. In addition, this exercise works well when you are trying to turn your thoughts to positive about someone with whom you are in a challenging relationship. Instead of thinking “I am” before each word, insert the person’s name.

Here are some examples:

  1. Amazing
  2. Blessed
  3. Beautiful
  4. Creative
  5. Compassionate
  6. Divine
  7. Empathetic
  8. Fun
  9. Generous
  10. Helpful
  11. Inspirational
  12. Joyful
  13. Kind
  14. Loving
  15. Mindful
  16. Nurturing
  17. Open-minded
  18. Peaceful
  19. Positive
  20. Quality
  21. Respectful
  22. Responsible
  23. Selfless
  24. Thankful
  25. Understanding
  26. Valuable
  27. Wise
  28. XO (full of Hugs and Kisses!)
  29. YAY!
  30. Zany
