I have been reading “Buddha’s Brain” lately and I think it would be useful for me to explicitly state an intention for each day.
I want to follow the exercises in this, and other books, but I don’t tend to have these things bubble up in my mind regularly. So I’m going to try getting into the habit of explicitly stating an intention publicly to see if that might help.
Today’s intention is “to take in the good”. The exercise is intended to help counter the negative bias that evolution has gifted ya with (in order to help us survive)
But apparently actively “soaking” in positive events can help shift one’s default reactions to situations and these days, I could really use that.
