Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of gratitude. – A.A. Milne
I like to practice gratitude thinking first thing in the morning, before I hop out of bed or look at my cell phone.
- Think of 1 to 3 things for which you are grateful. This can be a person or event, large or small. You might be thankful for your pet or a supportive friend, that the sky is clear or your favorite jeans haven’t ripped.
- Picture this in your mind and let the feeling of gratitude saturate your body.
Counting your blessings helps set the tone for the day, shining a light on what is good. Watch how much smoother your day unfolds when you intentionally focus on the positive.
