5 Ways to Express Gratitude Daily
We all want to be happier human beings right? Well, gratitude is the first step to happiness. Being grateful is seeing the abundance in your life, rather than looking for it. Gratitude doesn’t just happen over night. It’s something that takes time but I guarantee if you follow these daily tips you will be feeling the abundance in your life.
Say a little prayer of thanks before you even get out of bed in the morning
By acknowledging this first thing in the morning, you start your day out on a positive note. You will also be more open and aware of all the other abundance in your life.
Use your manners
Yes, I’m talking please and thank you. When you use your manners, you are actually being more grateful for whatever is being done for you. Whether it is someone opening the door for you or giving you a complement.
See the glass half full
You hit a red light on your way to work. You’re thinking great….but how else can you look at it? How about you maybe hit that red light to stop you from getting in an accident a mile ahead? Everything happens for a reason. Be grateful for EVERYTHING in your life.
Stay away from the negative Nellies
We all have those negative Nellies in our lives. However, you can choose to fall into their trap or keep your distance. It is easier to be negative and complain about life but you’ll feel a lot better if you surround yourself with positive people.
Show your thanks for someone special in your life
Maybe it’s your boyfriend, mom, or sister. Let them know how thankful you are for them by writing a note, giving them a call or text, or taking them out for lunch.
Make a gratitude journal
It doesn’t have to be anything fancy. It could just be a plain old notebook but hey wouldn’t it be fun to decorate and make special? Before bed, write at least 10 things you’re grateful for from that day. It could be something as simple as the sun was shining or you got .10 off a gallon of gas.
