A simple habit build a happier version of ourselves, reinforce new learnings, & focus on beginning tomorrow constructively
Oo Rah Jars
'Oo Rah' is most commonly used as a verbal greeting or an expression of motivation in the U.S. Marine Corps
'Oo Rah' also means "charge"
That is, to move forward
I first learned of the 'Oo Rah' phrase in 2012, and have since used 'Oo Rah Jars' in a daily habit to build a happier version of myself, reinforce new learnings, & focus on beginning tomorrow constructively
A recipe for building your own Oo Rah Jars is below
p.s. Scientific research supporting this habit is available
Pen x 1
Paper (A4) x 1
Jar x 1
Cut or tear paper into small pieces
Take a piece of paper
scribble down (3 or more of...)
● Something you are grateful for
● A moment where you experienced joy
● An achievement (big or small)
● Something you learned
● Something you'll do differently tomorrow
● The name of someone who helped you today
Place the pieces of paper into your oo-rah jar
p.s. Typing three 'things' using a phone is a handy alternative.
You can scribble things onto paper later on, if you like.
