We all had one of those days when everything’s going well until suddenly something upsets us or doesn’t go our way. Have you ever noticed that at the end of the day, all we can think about is that little thing that went wrong?
We can change the way we see the world around us by practicing gratitude. We can teach our brain to see the good in every situation. Gratitude takes 2 minutes per day and can boost our mental health and help us being more positive and optimistic.
…. and it really works!
Creating a new habit takes courage but it can have such a positive impact on you. So how does this work?
Here’s something that I do every day:
Pick a moment during the day and link this activity to your gratitude practice. (for me it’s usually around bed time)
It can be when you wake up, when you shower/brush your teeth or when you go to bed.
When you link an activity to this new practice, things will get easier and you’ll include this in your new routine in no time! Think about 3 things that you are grateful for today. You don’t have to write them down but if it helps – then pick your favorite notebook and start your gratitude diary!
Any gratitude practice involves visualisation: our brain doesn’t know the difference between what’s real and what’s not so if you repeat and visualize the good things that happened to you during the day, your mind & body will emit positive vibrations (and they will most likely put you to sleep!)
