51 MAINTAINING OPTIMISM Human beings unevenly spend much more time pondering about negative experiences than positive ones. As a part of human evolution, when something seems to go wrong, humans tend to preoccupy their mental capacity in order to find solutions to any given challenge. In the past, there may have been an evolutionary advantage to this way of thinking and it seems to be innate. Alas, for the contemporary era, this negative predisposition is mainly a source of excessive anxiety, depression, emotional disturbance, and general lack of wellbeing and mental clarity. The exercise “Three Good Things” also known and as “Three Blessings” is intended to increase happiness and enhance wellbeing. Originally developed by Martin Seligman (2012), the activity is scientifically proven, powerful and effective method to redirect attention from the negative bias to a more positive mind-set.
