3 Simple Things You Can Do To Be More Grateful

Practicing gratitude is an important part of a happy, healthy life. It seems to be simple enough, focus on the good and more good will come to you. While this is true, making this practice a habit can take some work. It’s not something that you can do once and expect to see dramatic results. The only side effect of daily gratitude is happiness!

 

Here are 3 simple ways to bring gratitude into your daily life:

  1. Make a list of 10 things you are grateful for everyday. Try to make this a unique list each day, think outside of the box. You may realize things that you never considered before, play through your day as if it’s a movie. Was there a kind stranger that smiled at you? Did your morning commute go smoothly? Maybe you saw a butterfly or noticed the birds singing, any little thing can brighten your day.
  2. Practice gratitude at the dinner table. Go around the table and have each person name 3 things they are grateful for that day. This is a great way to teach your children about gratitude and how to be thankful for what they have.
  3. Create an A-Z list of gratitude. Start with the letter A and work through the alphabet, listing one thing per letter. This is a fun way to get creative.
