Ingredient of the Week: Gratitude

September 20, 2015
My gratitude list

What is it? The acknowledgment of the positive things that come our way but which we did not actively seek or request.

Benefits: Increased positive emotions, abundance, resilience, reduced stress, greater achievement and better relationships.

Fun fact: People who practice gratitude also exercise more.

How to: A gratitude journal, gratitude letter to a person who has positively impacted your life, share 3-5 things you are grateful for each morning or night with someone close, send a simple thank you note or message, replace each ungrateful thought with a grateful one.

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” – Eckhart Tolle
