Attitude Of Gratitude: Being Thankful Comes Second Nature With These Habits

What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:9

Gratitude gets you out of woe-is-me mode and invigorates your life. Feeling thankful is scientifically proven to improve your mental and physical health, open the door to more relationships, improve your self esteem, and even help you sleep better. With the right approach, you can make gratitude a habit and watch the benefits roll in.

Appreciation Journal

At the end of every day, jot down three things that make you feel thankful — they could be things that happened that day, random qualities about your life or your family, or anything you like. Focusing on the positive helps to boost your mood, and when you’re down, you can pick up your appreciation journal and remind yourself of your blessings, according to Psychology Today.

Alternatively, make an appreciation board, or even just mentally note three positives at the end of each day. It won’t leave you with visual reminders to dip into, but the habit still helps.
