How To Develop An Attitude of Gratitude?

So many of us are desperate to be happy.

Searching for that one thing that will fill that gap, that emptiness – leaves us want more and more.

More money, more clothes, more food, more acknowledgment, more love, more time.

When in reality, what we have right this moment is enough.

“You’re enough.”

Happiness is not something that we buy or work for.

But,

Something that is within our reach each and every day. Something that we should cherish, regardless of our circumstances.

It all comes down to how we view our world.

The quickest way to finding true happiness, true peace, and contentment, lies in the power of gratitude.

But it’s not just about being thankful for all the good in your life.

To truly be grateful, you must also be thankful for the down times – the challenging times in your life.

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” - Ralph Waldo

It really doesn’t take much time or effort to start cultivating a more grateful life. You just need to start.

Here are 5 ways I like to show my gratitude each day:

1. Make Time To Spend With People That Truly Matter The Most

And show them how much they mean to you!

Showing gratitude for others lets them know how much you value them and also makes you feel good too!

2. A Gratitude Session

Simply take a few minutes each day to give thanks for whatever or whoever you are grateful for.

You can sit quietly, close your eyes and just think about what you’re grateful for, or find an alternative routine that works for you.

This one act alone can make a huge difference.

I usually do this in the morning before opening my eyes.

3. Be Courteous To Others

Say please and thank you, and really mean it.

Give way to another person, or help someone with their heavy luggage.

Small random acts of kindness not only help the other person, they make you feel good also.

Being Courteous to others means being selfish and selfless at the same time.

4. Savor The Small Things

The simple act of slowing down long enough to enjoy the little things in life can make a huge impact on your mood!

Savor the smell of your coffee a little while longer, be present when you’re in shower and feel the water.

Whenever you eat something, really take time to enjoy what you’re eating.

Give yourself daily opportunities to find little pieces of happiness and joy.

They all add up!

5. View Your Blessings As Just That, Blessings

Rather than feeling entitled to certain things, view them as gifts that you are truly grateful for receiving.

If you have shelter, food, clean drinking water, these are gifts. True blessings. Not an entitlement.

As you can see, cultivating gratitude doesn’t require drastic lifestyle changes. Simply starting with one or two of these suggestions can increase your wellbeing and happiness greatly.

Key Takeaway:

Here are 4 ways I like to show my gratitude each day.

1. Make Time To Spend With People That Truly Matter The Most
