Tip 26: Gratitude

11 Feb 2016 11:37 AM | Heather Kaye (Administrator)

When it comes to turning a tough day around or shifting your attitude, nothing works faster, is easier and is more consistently successful, than gratitude. The trick is to remembering to pause, take a moment and actually do it. It’s not hard. Try it.

Pause, breathe, close your eyes (if that helps you focus), clear your mind, and ask yourself, “what am I grateful for right now?” Your first thoughts may be extremely simple, which is fine. If you can stay in this space for even a minute, your mind will easily expand to include things big and small. The actual thought responses are not as important as seeking the answer.

If you make gratitude a daily practice, it will begin to come naturally. When you genuinely feel grateful it also becomes easier to share your appreciations with others.
