At dinnertime tonight, play “High, Low, Buffalo” with your family. (If it sounds like a game, kids may be more likely to participate.)

Each person shares the high point of their day, the low point of their day, and then any third random thing (“buffalo”).

I like this “game” because although there is emphasis on finding a high point, it doesn’t discount the fact that there are low points too. If the exercise resonates with your family, see if you can work it into your normal daily or dinner routines.

Alternatively, just play the game by yourself, maybe as part of your own version of a daily 5-minute journal.
