Gratitude

What does gratitude have to do with wellness?  Well, you will invite into your life whatever you focus on.  So we better focus on the good more than the bad!

Everyone has something to be thankful for.  If you are reading this, you can be thankful for:

  • Your eyes (or ears if you are listening to this being read)
  • Your ability to read
  • Your computer or phone
  • Access to the internet

Just think of all the things you have!  Your health (even if you are not healthy, if you are alive - you still have some health), your mind, family and friends, a roof over your head, food to eat, a beautiful day, etc.  There are things to be thankful for if you just look.  Did you have to get up really early when you would rather be sleeping?  First, be thankful you woke up at all.  Second, be thankful that you got to witness the start of the day!

You get the idea.

So how can we have an attitude of gratitude throughout the day?  Well, pick a trigger - something you do a lot.  I drink tea all the time, so that is my trigger.  Whenever you do your trigger, say thank you for something. (This can be in your head or out loud.)  So everytime I take a sip of tea, I am going to say thank you for something in my life.

Now you try.

Today's wellness task: Be thankful.  Every time you do your trigger - think of something you are thankful for.  (Also do this whenever you feel stressed.  It helps.)
