Teach her a Gratitude Practice

Podcast

Have you ever heard of the word Gratitude? What about the word grateful or thankful? These are words you may hear often in November, but I want them to be words you use every single day.

Here’s why… When you are grateful and thankful for things in your life your life changes for the better.

Gratitude is being thankful and appreciative for your life, your experiences, and all the things around you.

Did you know that it’s impossible to be angry and grateful at the same time? It’s true your brain can not possibly be both. How cool is that?

Today I want to share some tips with you that can help you to be more grateful and help you create a practice for yourself that is quick, easy, and will change your life!

So, when I say have a gratitude practice, here is what I mean. It’s the action of saying, thinking, or writing down what you are grateful for every single day.

People that have a daily gratitude practice where they say, think about or write what they are grateful for every single day to improve their happiness, have a more positive outlook on the day and their life, it can reduce stress, feelings of anger, and even improve your sleep.

You will see your life in a new way and see all the good things even if there are some things that are hard going on in your life.

So, there are many ways you can create a practice for yourself. It’s so easy to do and only takes 1-2 minutes tops. So, there is no reason you shouldn’t do this! I mean just knowing the benefits of a gratitude practice should have everyone creating one!

First, pick a time every day you want to commit to this practice. It can be in the morning or evening.

What you can do is just think about what you are grateful for. I have a fun mirror cling on my kid’s bathroom mirror that says. Today, I am grateful for…. And I hope each time they see it that they think about something that they are grateful for.  You can find that mirror clings in my SHOP.

Another idea is to write down what you are grateful for. You can use a blank notebook or paper. To make it easier, I created a free printable worksheet that can help you each month carry on this gratitude practice. I will link to it in the show notes, and you can print this out! Just print out one sheet for the month and fill it in each day.

One key thing that I learned was from a professor of Happiness, his name is Shawn Achor. He says that when writing down what you are grateful for, try to write down things that happened within the last 24 hours. Try to write down experiences, people, and things that you encountered over the past 24 hours.

This November I am starting a challenge and I would love for you to take part in this! This episode is airing on Nov 1st and so for the entire month of November, I want you to try for 30 days to write down 3 things you are grateful for! I created a free printable just for this challenge and I would love it if you would print it out and do this with me! Head to this LINK to print out the worksheet and participate in the gratitude challenge out. Post a picture and tag me on Instagram and I will pick 3 people to win stickers from my shop!
