Regular practice of gratitude brings us many benefits. First of all, it makes us feel good. Gratitude is focused on what we have, instead of what we lack. Thus, it creates a feeling of abundance at the moment and attracts more in our lives.
The purpose of this practice is to show us what we have, how blessed we are at every moment, even at times when our focus is on missing someone or something.
There are many ways to practice gratitude. Choose the one that most closely resembles your nature.
Every morning before getting up, express your gratitude for 3 to 5 things that you have in your life.
Every night, before sleeping, express your gratitude for 3 to 5 things that you experienced that day.
List of Gratitude
Make your list of gratitude. On a sheet of paper, write down the things (people, events, successes, features) that you feel grateful for being part of your life. Update and read this list at least once a week.
Box of Gratitude
Create your own Gratitude Box. Each time you feel grateful for the presence of someone or something in your life, write it on a piece of paper and put it in the box. Once in a while, spend time with your Box of Gratitude, by reading the messages.
Letter of Gratitude
Write a letter of gratitude to someone you are grateful to. A personal choice is whether you will share the letter with the person it is written about or you will keep it for yourself. The feeling of gratitude you experience while writing the letter is the most precious gift for you.
