Gratitude Rituals That Can Change Your Day
Gratitude turns what we have into enough!
Easier said than done! Ok, appreciate the world right?! Right! Finding the good seems to take a lot longer and more energy than finding the bad, especially if you were raised in a negative home like I was. The most successful people in the world cite the daily habit of gratitude as contributing to their success.
Here are three ways I put gratefulness in my life that have created more happy.
- Every morning I write in my 1 minute gratitude journal while I am savoring my first cup of coffee. It is almost a gratitude diary, as I write about the happenings of the day before and the current day.
- I tell 3 people something nice and what I appreciate about them. My favorite surprise is to tell people their eyes match their shirts! I could write a book on the people I have met doing that simple gesture. (This is why my grocery store trips are almost painful for Gary tagging along.)
- I play the abundance game when I am in the car. I note the quantity (that dietitian mind) or the quality of things around me, like I see 6 beautiful oak trees with thousands of leaves. I see 8 silver cars. (Ever notice that most cars are black, silver and white?)
I guarantee that these 3 habits will help you attract more abundance and joy into your life and, suddenly, you will have enough!
And isn’t that what we are all after?
I would love to hear how you “do gratitudes” and if you use a special journal or have a special ritual!
I am grateful for you reading this! You make my heart happy!
