I hope this message finds you well.
You may think that I am referring to a Christmas list but actually; I am referring to a Gratitude List.
Gratitude is the state of being grateful and although we encounter many trying times, we should take a moment to reflect upon those things that we are grateful for.
I would like to challenge you to create your own gratitude list, keep that list with you, and add to it as needed. A few things that you can add to the list could be:
* Good Health
* Loving Family
* Caring heart
As you see, the list could go on and on if you really sit down and reflect on it.
Here are a few tips to get started:
Set aside a small amount of time each day to focus on things that you are grateful for. You can spend as little as 5 minutes on this task and bring those items that you are grateful for into your mind.
Get a small notebook or just a sheet of paper and use it to note the things that you are grateful for. Writing down the things that you are grateful for is a great reflective activity.
Little things count too. It can be something as everyday as “I’m grateful for nice clothing” or “I’m grateful for my evening cup of tea”. The key to this exercise is to think about what we are thankful for whether big or small.
Studies have shown that expressing gratitude promotes our physical and emotional well being.
