The habit of practicing gratitude
Just because Thanksgiving is over, does not mean that we should stop being thankful and grateful for all of the good things in our lives. In fact, it should be the opposite. I am sure many of you felt and expressed gratitude last week Thursday. Maybe it was with your spouse, significant other, family and friends. Many of us volunteered and went a little above and beyond for others. I recommend we use last week as a catalyst for practicing gratitude with a purpose going forward.
Practicing gratitude makes us feel better, improves our mood and changes our outlook on
life. It is important to do this on a daily basis. Simple, right? Put it to the test… I would encourage you to set aside a few minutes each day to sit in your favorite place, whether it be a park, your backyard, your office, or your home to reflect on who and what you are grateful for in your life. Take time to reflect on your own abilities, talents and positive attributes.
A great place to start is a gratitude journal. I am sure many of you have heard of this concept, but have you taken the time to do it. It really works. I have met so many people in this last year who are actively focusing on gratitude. It is amazing to see the impact it is making in the results they are seeing in their personal and professional lives.
