In the spirit of giving thanks, I wanted to share this article I read in Body + Soul magazine.
7. Set an alarm.
Every time it goes off (once, twice, or three times a day), stop what you’re doing and, for 30 seconds, focus on something or someone for whom you’re grateful.
8. Count blessings, not sheep.
It’s a fact: Research shows that people who cultivate gratitude sleep better than those who don’t. Rather than run through all of the tasks you did or didn’t do today, think of all you received —and count the warm intentions of the people behind these gifts.
9. Keep grateful company.
Become more aware of who you spend your time with. Surround yourself with grateful people, and you’ll start seeing the bright side of yourself.
10. Do a bliss list.
For five straight minutes, make a list of all the things you’ve received from other people in the past month. Carry it in your pocket and read it when you’re in line at the bank or waiting for a friend.
Which one(s) will you try?
