Here's how to use quick moments of pleasure and connection to create an arc of pleasure throughout your day. This classic couples therapy exercise was developed by Peter Fraenkel PHD, An award winning couples therapist and the director of the Center for Time, Work, and the Family at the Ackerman Institute for the Family, in New York City.
Here, we adapt it as a framework to cultivate micropleasures - experiences that give you an experience of pleasure, joy or connection in 60 seconds or less - into your daily life. This challenge asks you to connect first with yourself, then share these moments with those you love.
