Amazing stuff, so now what?
How can you incorporate a gratitude practice in your life?
Book it: Make a daily date with some gratitude.
If you are a slave to your calendar, make it work for your wellness by setting a daily gratitude appointment with yourself. When the alarm sounds, mentally note something or someone for whome you're grateful.
Write it: Start a gratitude laundry list.
Get it on paper, set up a word doc or get yourself a gratitude journal. If you write down a few things daily, you will start to accumulate an amazing list of positive vibes. This list of good-feeling thoughts will not only help you achieve the benefits noted above but will also help you place things into perspective when times are tough.
Say it: Let your gratitude be known and let others come along for the ride
Use Thanksgiving to launch a formal gratitude shout-out tradition with loved ones. Post Turkey Day, try doing attitude of gratitude shout-outs prior to every dinner together. Single? Next time you have a girls’ or boys’ night out take some time to go around and do your shout-out then!
In summary, taking a little time each day to note what you are grateful can have a big impact on your health and wellness.
