How to Practice Gratitude

Gratitude―for some reason this word can be quite alien to many people because they might think, Well, what in the world do I have to be grateful for? I live in a crappy apartment, I don’t have money to buy some new clothes and blah, blah, blah… Stop right there because there is always something to be grateful for.

For instance, you may live in an apartment that you are not happy with and believe me I’ve been there too but you have two choices. You can either pout about how you’re not happy with your current home or you can be grateful that you have a rough over your head because that’s a major blessing.

It’s okay to want more and to plan on getting something better because you can achieve a better life but it doesn't mean you can’t be grateful for what you have right now. Count your blessings and be very grateful now.

Now let’s practice…

Grab a pen and paper to write down everything you are truly grateful for and why. When you share why you are grateful for it, it makes it more honest and you’ll understand your real reason for it.

People who are grateful live very happy lives because they count their blessings every single day and they know more amazing things will come their way. Here is a list of examples of how to practice gratitude. Enjoy.

I am so grateful to be alive because there is so much in life to experience.
I am so grateful to be in good health because I can live a nice long life.
I am so grateful to have a home because it’s nice to be able to go in a safe shelter.
I am so grateful for my mother because she has always been there for me.
I am so grateful for my eyesight because there is so much in life to see.
I am so grateful to live on Earth because there are so many beautiful things on this planet.
I am so grateful to be able to eat every day because food is fuel for humans, just like gas is for cars.
I am so grateful for drinking water every day because water keeps me hydrated which means I can live longer and healthier.
I am so grateful for…

...and there you go. It’s simple and quite easy because you honestly can find anything to be grateful for. Be grateful for your heart, brain, food, animals, the zoo, friends, family, etc. You can be grateful for anything by simply looking for the beauty in the world. Now answer this question, what are you grateful for and why?

Love always,
