The Three Good Things exercise is intended to increase happiness and a sense of wellbeing.
It does this by a simple method of redirecting attention towards positive thoughts and away from negative thoughts. Human beings have evolved to spend much more time thinking about negative experiences than positive ones. We spend a lot of time thinking about what has gone wrong and how to fix it, or how to do it differently next time. In the past, there may have been an evolutionary advantage to this way of thinking since it seems to be innate. However, for modern humans, this negative bias is the source of a lot of anxiety, depression, and general lack of wellbeing.
Luckily, by redirecting our thoughts on purpose towards positive events, we can do a lot to correct this negative bias.
As a side effect, when we focus on the positive, our brains automatically start to look for ways for our lives to be better. Releasing energy to solve problems, work toward goals, and improve our lives.
