Hello, it’s Chris, and in this weeks blog post, I want to talk about gratitude. Now, gratitude is talked about everywhere. You cannot log into Facebook without being bombarded by posts about gratitude.
However, one thing that I find interesting, is how people try to make it so complicated. When gratitude, and the art of showing it, is actually pretty darn simple.
So I wanted to share you with you MY take on things and explain why I am a believer in the power of gratitude.
Gratitude is healing.
Gratitude is extremely healing – no matter how bad a day you are having, when you take a moment to show gratitude, your mood and your state simp
Whether you are experiencing negative feelings towards a person, have had an argument with your partner, or are simply having a down day in general, finding one thing to be grateful for, can totally change your energy,
FIND ONE THING TO BE GRATEFUL FOR IN THIS MOMENT… AND IF IT’S TO HEAL THINGS BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR PARTNER, FIND ONE THING IN THEM THAT YOU ARE GRATEFUL FOR, AND JUST NOTICE HOW YOUR CURRENT STATE CHANGES.
Gratitude can be particularly useful to turn to when you are having an anxious moment, or you are particularly stressed about something. Gratitude has the power to remind you of the good in your life, and okay, I am not saying that can magically cure depression, but what it can do, is work as a really easy to use mind tool that can help you create a positive mindset and THAT can help you work through things.
Gratitude is bonding.
Families all around the world, are taking a moment before their evening meal together, to practise the art of being grateful. I am not necessarily religious, but if you think about the act of praying, and be thankful for the food that is in front of you – that is a form of gratitude.
If you sit and eat with your family, take a moment at meal time to say one thing from that day that you are grateful for. It could be something that happened at work, a beautiful rainbow that you saw, good food that you ate at lunch … absolutely anything!.
This is a great habit to give to children and can really help them see the positive in things.
Gratitude is attractive.
What I mean by that is that gratitude can work wonders to help you attract things. If you have heard about the law of attraction then you will know that by being grateful about the things that we do have, it puts into the right frequency in order to attract other things.
Think about it, dwelling on what you DON’T have, will only bring you more of the negative, so take time each day to perhaps write in a gratitude journal and build up a momentum.
Whether you are new to gratitude or practice it regularly, my main advice is to just try it. It’s so easy to implement and the change to your life will be powerful.
I hope that this has been of some help to you, and as always don’t forget to join me on Facebook. Until the next time, stay happy and stay grateful….
