Dad Things - Issue #41
Develop the habit of gratitude. Savor the good moments throughout each day. Spend time thinking about happy memories. And at the end of each day, write down 5 things you are grateful for: the roof over your head, your good fortune at being born in a wealthy country, the existence of Less Wrong, the taste of chocolate, the feel of orgasm... whatever. It sounds childish, but it works.
Being grateful is something I wished I learned sooner in life. A lot of bad days can be prevented by simply flipping the situation. Instead of complaining that I have to take the kids to school, I flip the script and say I get to take the kids to school. Such an easy lifehack that can lead to a less stressful life.
