Give Thanks Daily

by Jun 5, 2021Theme: Gratitude

One effective way to reframe your perception throughout the day is by deliberately giving thanks. When you feel overwhelmed, stressed, irritated, agitated, upset, angry, or even depressed, pause for a moment to give thanks for the food in your stomach, clothes on your back, another day of life in this beautiful world.

Or, think about the one person in your life who is there for you, and express gratitude from your heart. No matter how small or insignificant it may seem, there’s always something to be grateful for. Now express thanks. You will almost invariably find a rush of calming peace and tranquil serenity flowing through your consciousness.

Finally, before going to bed each night, write in a journal five things that you are grateful for that day. It will help you sleep better. Focusing on the positive things in life will fight off the brain’s tendency to look for the negatives. Thus, you are training your brain to be both happier and more positive.
