10 Easy Ways to Practice Gratitude

Updated: Dec 12, 2019

In our last blog, we explored a few rewards that come from recognizing the positive aspects of your life. Check out these ten easy ways to practice gratitude.

  • Find something you are thankful for each day and create a gratitude list. Add to it regularly.

  • Notice the beauty in nature each day. At times we forget the beauty around us as we focus on the mundane of the day.

  • Spend quality time with people who nourish your soul. Nurture the valuable relationships you have; good friends don’t come along every day.

  • Listen to music that inspires you.

  • Tell someone you love them and how much you appreciate them.

  • Watch inspiring videos that will remind you of the good in the world.

  • Surround yourself with positive quotes and images.

  • Include an act of kindness in your life each day- volunteer for a helpful organization, buy a stranger coffee, take a friend for a meal, etc.

  • Avoid negative media and movies with destructive content.

  • Write a card or say thank you to someone. Thank the people who you care about--- a friend, family member, or someone that serves in the community (the shopkeeper, the bus drivers, etc.)

  • Commit to one day a week when you won’t complain about anything.
