Feel Loved, Feel Good  – Feel Grateful

February 13, 2018 | By More

Many of us feel stressed and under pressure – we are on the go with our fast-paced lifestyles. It’s only natural for us to occasionally feel worn out or even a bit down from time to time.

The good news is that something as simple as shifting your attention from your challenges to acknowledging the things that you are grateful for in your life can instantly boost your mood, making you feel loved and feel good about yourself.

Studies show that practicing gratitude on a regular basis can improve your mood and also boost your self-esteem, will power, long term health, and even your level of success in life!

Beat the blues with these practices to help you develop your sense of gratitude:

Keep a list of all of the things you’re grateful for. The next time that you feel irritated, frustrated, or a bit depressed, make a list and literally count your blessings. Making a list helps you to stop fixating on the current situation.

Start the day on a positive note. Set the tone and focus for the rest of your day by taking a few moments each morning to review the positive things in your life.

Be alert to the goodness all around you. It’s hard to have a positive attitude if you focus on only the negative things happening around you. Make a point to consciously seek the good in everything, especially in small, simple things such as a child’s innocent laughter or the beauty found in nature.

Perform random acts of kindness. You can increase your own gratitude by being someone else’s reason for thankfulness. Practice random acts of kindness by unexpectedly helping others.

Save notes of gratitude, instead of loose change, in a jar. Too busy to make gratitude lists or keep a gratitude journal? Try writing short notes about gratitude to yourself and keeping them in a jar!

There are difficult times in everyone’s life, but practicing gratitude on a regular basis gives you the power and inspiration to remain positive as you overcome challenges.
