When my kids and foster kids were in the house I would often sneak into their bathrooms and post positive post-it-note messages on their bathroom mirrors. This helped boost self-esteem, promoted positivity, and let them know they were loved. I also give this for homework assignments to clients who may need a positivity boost or are working on feeling better about themselves. You can do the same thing!
Either write notes to yourself or to those you love and leave them where they will be read several times a day. The bathroom mirror is a great place because the notes are seen often. I have individuals read the note and acknowledge it every time they are looking in the mirror. Dry erase markers or lipstick also work well on bathroom mirrors.
Imagine my surprise when I walked into my bathroom one night and found many, many of these positive notes written by all my children while I was out! It felt wonderful to know I was loved and to know that this positive note writing also taught my kids to reciprocate positivity and to show love to others!
I challenge you to do this positivity post-it-note messages for yourself or others today!
