This time of year allows us to step back and reflect on our blessings. I, like everyone else, have found myself in lots of conversations lately around gratitude. So I thought I would share how I practice gratitude with you all. We have all heard the benefits of practicing gratitude over and over.
And who doesn’t want to taste a bit of that?! But my problem was that I could never get myself to consistently take the time to write things down. So I tried saying them in my head. Still didn’t feel the benefits.
One day I scrolled across an image called the Gratitude Bomb on Instagram. Just the name had me intrigued. Then I saw that it involved adding in some creativity and it gave me prompts and areas to think about where I might be feeling gratitude.
I instantly knew this was MY answer! I can be creative AND feel good – sign me up!
So I crafted the idea to work for me. When I think about living a balanced life, I head straight to the wheel of life. It allows me to seek thoughts in all areas, not just one or a commonplace I tend to gravitate towards.
And I can say, this new practice has stuck. And best of all, it HAS definitely helped me. Feeling gratitude in all areas of your life creates a sense of balanced energy that I didn’t even know I was missing.
And now in the spirit of this season, I want to share it with you. To access it, click here. I hope you will give it a chance and see the benefits for yourself when you practice gratitude.
