Self care Sunday... The attitude of gratitude
Oh I could go on and on about the importance of just saying thank you, I'm not talking about generalised manners, although equally important for sure, I'm on about deep gratitude for everything we experience on a day to day basis.
By expressing our thanks daily to this thing we call life and all that's in it, we actually place ourselves in a remarkably happier position and we become much better equipped to deal with things as and when they're presented to us.
By consciously being grateful to the things you experience , you are opening yourself up to become lighter in mood, more able to cope with stress and without doubt able to start spotting the positives in everything.
Moreover we become full participants in our lives rather than bystanders letting life happen to us. We start to see the beauty in everything and really notice the little things.
By consciously recognising things that you're grateful for, you are putting your brian into positive mode meaning less room for negative talk because you're so busy thinking of all the things you have around you that make you happy. What's not to like!
So honestly, just try it, be thankful for something, anything! And funnily enough, the more you spot the more you'll notice and all of a sudden, you're surrounded by things you like.
Have a beautiful week.
