You’ve probably seen that meme going around Facebook where, for a week, individuals are postings things they feel grateful for.
Then I read s a recent Metafilter thread on how to cultivate a better relationship with your partner, and a commenter had this to say:
“My husband and I end each day doing what we call “What did you like today”. What happens is that at the end of the day when we go to bed we snuggle together, and we each take turns listing off everything we liked that day.”
This appealed to me as a more individual, private, and specific version of the meme and I instituted it at home. It’s a great way for my husband and I to learn about the highlights of each other’s day and it’s nice to fall asleep with these happy thoughts floating in my brain. Will it make us happier? Perhaps. But for now, it’s a nice little bedtime ritual just for the two of us.
Do you practice any form of gratitude?
