Grafetfulness Encourages Healthy Lifestyles
When we are grateful for what we have, not only are we able to see improvements in how we view our lives and those around us, but in how we take care of ourselves as well.
Research has shown that those who express gratitude regularly also eat healthier, sleep better, and exercise more, which are all ways in which we can increase our overall happiness every day.
Giving thanks helps to create a cycle of healthy living, which only helps us to be able to express even more gratitude!
Tips for Being Grateful
We know that some days are easier than others when it comes to expressing gratitude, but there are a few ways that you can increase your thankfulness every single day no matter what it looks like.
Wake up and be thankful for one thing. When we first wake up in the morning, our subconscious is most active, making it the perfect time to express gratitude or thanks. When we focus on positive thinking at the very beginning of our day, we can set up our entire day for greater success and positivity.
Keep a journal. Writing has many proven health benefits, but writing down what we are thankful for does as well! When we put words to our thoughts of gratitude, we can explain in detail how we are feeling. It also allows you to have a journal of everything you are thankful for so that you can review it on the days when it may be difficult to give thanks.
Remind yourself to give thanks throughout the day. It can be difficult to remember to find the silver lining in each situation that you may face. Here’s a tip! Set a few alarms on your phone with reminders to give thanks. Soon expressing gratitude all day every day will become much easier to do.
