Day Five: Gratitude


Gratitude comes in many forms and serves several purposes to enrich your life and those around you.

Keeping a gratitude journal or jar can help you to recognize the good things in your life. Write a few things you are grateful for each day in a journal or write them on scraps of paper and put them in a jar. Revisit the items you saved at times when you are feeling down.

Show gratitude to the ones you love. Thank them for the things they do and the impact they have on your life. Compliment them sincerely and often. This not only makes you both feel good, it also strengthens your interpersonal bond.

Show kindness to the world. Smile at a fellow customer, thank a cashier, compliment a stranger, do a random act of kindness, etc. The sky is the limit!

You get back from life what you put into it. Thank the people in your life and show kindness to others, and you will feel positive energy beginning to flow back to you.
