Starting A Yearlong Gratitude Practice
Cultivating and expressing appreciation regularly can help you stay grounded in what makes your life meaningful.
Thankfulness may come more naturally during the holidays, but gratitude doesn’t need to be saved for one special occasion or season.
Consider being intentional in practicing and regularly acknowledge the people you appreciate in your life. The places you enjoy going to and making your life meaningful.
In doing so, you may find yourself feeling generally happier and perhaps better equipped to rebound from hard times.
Here are four ideas to help you cultivate and express yourself all year long.
👏 Write a letter, not an email to someone. We are living in a digital world for communication. It would be so nice to receive a handwritten letter at least once a month. Go as far as purchasing stationery for it. It will brighten your heart and the person receiving it.
👏 Cultivating a deeper sense of awareness of your sense of appreciation is a powerful way to promote happiness, connect with your core values, and reduce stress and anxiety. If you’re new to prayer or meditation. It is as simple as closing your eyes and taking a deep breath and focusing on what you are truly thankful for.
👏 Keep a Journal. Research suggests that maintaining a gratitude journal can ease anxiety. If you don’t have the time to sit and write your thoughts, then make a list of bullet points. It will boost your mood. Jot down meaningful words or phrases of gratitude. Just write it down!
👏 Fill, I like to call it the sweet-jar. In fact, you can start this as a family tradition. It’s a gratitude jar. You record on a slip of paper or post it. Create a space where everyone can record mementos of thankfulness. At the end of the week, take out a note and it will remind you how to be thankful.
