Practicing Gratitude
10:16:59 2023-11-23 276

1- Reflect on the good in your life.  Being grateful has long-term benefits on your health, work, and social life. Every night before sleeping, think of the good things that have happened that day. Include the things people have said and the things others have done for you. Reflect on the things you ate and the basic necessities you have. It’s easy to take these things for granted. Often, we are too busy thinking of the few negative experiences we have throughout the day to feel positive about the many good things.

  • Sometimes, we suffer a great loss and need to grieve. Grieving does not necessarily mean that we are ungrateful and being grateful does not mean you’re not allowed to grieve. It’s a natural human process.

 

2- Train your mind to look for the good in everything. It’s easy to adopt a negative outlook on life. Actively looking for the positive aspects of every situation will help you be grateful. It will help you criticize and complain less and appreciate more. If you find yourself in an unfavorable situation, ask yourself what you can learn from it.

  • If you find yourself in a generally low mood, ask yourself if what you’re thinking is based on fact or opinion. Is there truth to your thoughts? Think of other ways of looking at your situation.
  • This doesn’t mean that you’re not allowed to have negative thoughts. Everybody has negative thoughts occasionally. Believing all the negative thoughts to be true is what will have a negative impact on your life including lower mood and motivation to work for a great future.

 

3- Thank people along the way. Make it a point to thank others who are a valuable part of your life or who have helped you do things to make a better future. Not only will this open the door to more beneficial relationships but will also improve your physical and mental health. Send thank you notes to professional acquaintances and be thoughtful and caring to those you’re close to.
