MINDFULNESS PRACTICE: GRATEFULNESS
To lighten your heart, swell your gratitude. Gratefulness practices are used to promote a positive mood, hope, and resilience. In addition, by taking time to reflect upon the things you are thankful for, you will sleep better, express more compassion and kindness, and have stronger immune systems.
As we experience positive emotions such as gratitude, loving-kindness, and compassion, our awareness broadens and our creativity and problem-solving capacities blossom, and we become more effective in what we do.
Take 15 min to appreciate who you are, where you are, and the people in your life at this moment.
Be thankful for the little things and share this on a daily basis with a smile, by eye contact or just by saying “thank you”.
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” – Oprah Winfrey.
