Marathon #8 in Hamburg and Improving your Optimism Daily

Posted by on Apr 27, 2015 in Giving Thanks, Marathons, Resiliency, Videos | No Comments

This past Saturday I ran my 8th marathon since being diagnosed with cancer, and this time I was in Hamburg, Germany. What an amazing experience! More than 750,000 spectators and 20,000 runners.

I shot this quick video when I finished, in which I talk about daily exercises to improve your optimism, as well as Hunt the Good Stuff (#htgs) and University of Pennsylvania’s Army Master Resilience Training (taught by Dr. Karen Reivich).

Approaching the day with optimism can be as simple as writing down three things you’re thankful for, an exercise I did for the 30 days leading up to this marathon.

Give it a shot: what are three things you’re thankful for today? Write you responses below in the comments section, I’d love to hear from you.

Have a Great Day and Live the Three Points of Contact!
