The Science of Well Being Expecting Change

Expecting change is just as important as all the work you have committed to and completed in the last few weeks. You have every right and insight to expect change. Expect changes in your moods, your social connections and gratitude. This week we challenge you to list all the things you may see change, great or small, and email us at and share how these practices have changed your life, habits or thinking in any way.

Activity 7 EXPECTING CHANGE The hope is that by this point in the course, you have sampled several rewirements such as: using your strengths, savoring experiences, keeping a gratitude journal, connecting to others, performing kindness for others, exercising and sleeping more, meditating, and writing a gratitude letter and extending the gratitude practice.

Your expectations mean a lot in the next few weeks. Participating in this program took a lot of effort, time and commitment. Not just commitment to the program but to your well being. From week to week, review the exercises and practice them over and over again until you feel the change in you. Look for changes in any aspect of your life where you stop negative thoughts, change your way of thinking or even if you just practice quieting your mind more often by meditating.
