5 Way To Become More Grateful
Gratitude can be a game changer.
I kid you not.
Research has proven that gratitude can improve mental, emotional and even physical health.
Staying grateful helps you notice the little wins in life, from catching the bus on time to a stranger smiling at you. Over time as you start noticing the good, these small moments overlap to create a web of well-being.
But how to begin?
Here are 5 ways you can start.
1. Keep A Journal
Set a time aside daily to fill in your gratitude journal. Remember yourself of all the tiny and big moments you had, everything you enjoyed or nice things that came your way. Recalling these moments will help you value the good in your life.
2. Give Back
Giving back to the community is one of the strongest ways of accumulating gratitude. It will make you self aware of things you’ve taken for granted.
3. Express Yourself
Feeling grateful for a friend or a family member? Express it. Sharing feelings of gratitude with people you are thankful for multiplies it and directly increases happiness too
4. Appreciate Everything
Don’t be picky about what you will be grateful for. Don’t save it for big moments only. A job promotion or getting married are great milestones but there’s so much more you can be grateful for. Perhaps the great weather, hot coffee and even a good night’s rest.
5. Remember The Bad
Remember the hard times that you have experienced. Remembering the bad helps you be grateful for how far you have come. Remember how life used to be and where you are now.
Start small, but start now.
