Leanne can be found on her blog, Cresting The Hill, sharing her discoveries about how wonderful this time of life is, how she has developed her self-worth and how easy it is to practice gratitude. She would love for you to stop by and say hi.
My daughter went to an in-service training course a few weeks ago and shared with me the 21 Day Gratitude Practice they had been encouraged to do. It seemed like a great way to take the focus away from all the troubles in the world and to think about all the little blessings that come our way.
Five Simple Ways To Practice Gratitude
Sometimes it’s hard to be grateful when life overwhelms us, so here are five Gratitude Practices that I thought would be easy to do and could make life a little sweeter:
1. Make The Call
Take a few minutes to call someone you haven’t talked to for a while and tell them they are appreciated.
2. Share The Picture
Take a photo of a thing, person or place that you appreciate and share it on social media.
3. Compliment Yourself
Stand in front of the mirror and find five things you appreciate about yourself – write them down.
4. Be Positive
Today look at the world with positivity. Choose kindness and refrain from criticism.
5. Say Thank You
Write a thank you note to a friend (or to yourself) focusing on what you are grateful for.
