Gratitude is one of the simplest ways to change your life and the life of those around you. Beginning your day with gratitude is the perfect way to enter into your day with a positive light, energy and attitude. It’s as simple as thinking about the things in your life that you are grateful for while cooking your breakfast or brushing your teeth. Get lost in the shower for a few life changing minutes.
Steve Harvey talks about spending 10 minutes each day listing things in he is grateful for…just in his head. Some people write them down and that rocks, but you don’t even have to do that. Just thinking about all that you have to grateful for will kick-start your day.
Ending the day with gratitude is a beautiful way to find appreciation for all that you’ve done or seen that day. My night time gratitude list is very different than my morning list. I focus on things that happened THAT day and you’d be surprised at how many things you can come up with even when you think you’ve had a crappy day.
It takes mere moments, but it gives you this awesome bookend of gratitude and once you start seeing all that you have to be grateful for…your list (and awareness) will grow and blossom and you’ll wonder why you waited so long to start.
Plus where there is gratitude there is joy and who doesn’t want a big old pile of joy to sprinkle all over there life?
