Often, when I go running I like to play ‘The Positive Alphabet Game’-the rules are simple-I have to describe myself in three words using every letter of the alphabet. Here are some examples for the letters P, M and A:
P: I am POSITIVE, I am PERSISTANT & I am PRACTICAL
M: I am MOTIVATED, I am MENTALLY strong & I MOVE forward
A: I am ASPIRATIONAL, I AIM high & I am AWARE
As you cycle through the alphabet, don’t be afraid to use negative words-afterall we have both positive and negative attributes-but often, just the act of being aware of ones negative points can help us move forward in a more positive way.
After playing this game, my mind always feels clearer and I feel more connected to myself. Often, we hear other people telling us about our ‘good’ and ‘bad’ points, but how often do we actually tell ourselves?
Try it! It’s fun and you can play it anywhere; on the train, when you’re trying to fall asleep or waiting to meet a friend. A great way to connect with your inner self!
