3 Ways to be More Grateful

March 08, 2019

It can be easy to get swept up in the frustrations and stress of everyday life. However, rather than complain and winge, it’s important to remember to stop and show appreciation for the things that you have.

Here are three ways that you can be more grateful:

Keep a Gratitude Journal

Take a few minutes every day to write down what you are grateful for. Write down any and all positive thoughts from the day.

While you write, you will start to consciously think about what you are writing without negative thoughts clouding your mind.

Appreciate Everything

The habit of being positive and grateful starts with appreciating all the good things in life.

Even if it is something as simple as noticing the beautiful weather, listening to the chirp of the birds in the morning, or accepting a compliment from a loved one, you’ll realise that there is nothing too small for you to be thankful for.

Be Thankful For Experiences

Sometimes thinking about negative or difficult situations can help remind you what you have to be thankful for.

Think back to some of your past experiences and try to figure out how they have helped shape you into the person you are today.
