Last week we thought about ways that you could show gratitude towards other people. Today I bring you five ways to get into the habit of noticing the things you’re grateful for each and every day.
1. A Gratitude Jar
Mommypotamus has a tutorial for creating a happiness jar, such a simple way for the whole family to get involved. I used to use a similar idea in my classroom.
2. A Gratitude Journal
At the end of every day I spend 5 minutes writing down the best things from each day and the things I’m grateful for. You can read about how I originally started it here.
I occasionally use the Smiling Mind App for meditation – they have a ‘Gratitude and Joy’ themed one. Hop here to see what they offer – it’s a freebie!
4. Count Blessings instead of Sheep
Best way to get to sleep – think of all the good stuff in your life!
5. Follow my Instagram prompts!
Each day on my Instagram account I publish a gentle nudge into thinking about gratitude around a particular theme. Hop over and check it out!
How do you show gratitude in your life?
