Showing appreciation for all that we have is important. We easily focus on what we want, rather then what we have, and tend to dwell on the negative. Why not celebrate what we do have and focus on the positive?
Gratitude is key to experiencing life at its best, and being grateful will allow you to capture the full essence of every moment. Gratitude means thankfulness and shifts your focus from what you lack to what is already present.
The secret of happiness is to count your blessings while others are adding up their troubles
– William Penn
There are endless reasons to why being grateful is beneficial; it makes people happier, it strengthens relationships, improves health and reduces stress. My mantra for today is therefor: I am grateful.
I am grateful for yet another day
I am grateful for walking up in a warm bed
I am grateful for the sun shining and the air being crisp
I am grateful for the warm cup of coffee I had for breakfast
I am grateful for being able to start my day on the mat
What are you grateful for today?
