Hey everyone! I want to invite you all to try one of my favorite mindfulness exercises: Rose, Thorn, and Bud. We use this at summer camp a lot as a bunk talk activity, to let our campers reflect and share about their day. The exercise is simple enough. Just ask yourself these three things: Rose - What was the highlight of your day today? Thorn - What was one thing that didn't go as well as you'd like today? Bud - What is something you're looking forward to tomorrow? I really love RTB, and use it myself for reflection and refocusing on positive things going on in my life (without trying to ignore the negative). And making myself find something good, and focus on something I'm looking forward to helps me be positive and grateful even on the terrible, awful, no-good, very bad days. If you like this, feel free to use it for yourself! Here's one of mine from earlier this week: Rose: I had a really good performance coaching session with my supervisors! They had very nice things to say, and we agreed on where my growth areas are and it just went really well. Thorn: I had a ticket to fix one of our test environments, and it took a really long time and was blocking other people's work for most of the day... That was a lot of pressure. Bud: After years of saying "I think I want to get a tattoo," I've started talking with a studio about getting a tattoo! And I'm really excited! I've got a design picked out and everything, and I found a studio with work that I really like!
