The following exercise is aimed at improving your mood by making you visualize and write a positive future (Carrillo, 2018).
There are five worksheets to be completed on five successive days, which focus on your family, career, physical/mental health, romantic life, and overall lifestyle.
Before you begin each worksheet, sit back, relax and take a few deep breaths. You need to clear your mind of all the things that have bothered you or worried you during the day.
Take about 10 minutes for each worksheet, and imagine what life would be like in the future if you were the best possible version of yourself in each of these scenarios. What would life be like? Thinking in as much detail as possible, write down what life would look like in this situation. There is no need to worry about grammar or spelling; just write about whatever comes to your mind. You might imagine that you’ve accomplished an important milestone or achieved a lifelong goal. Be positive yet realistic. For example, rather than imagining that you become the next president of France the next day, you could imagine that you have been successful in your career and that you are living happily with your family.
