5 Tips for Practicing Gratitude
Focusing on what went well (rather than what didn't) is a seemingly small attitude change that can make a big difference. Science backs this up: people who practice gratitude have higher self-esteem, are healthier, sleep better and exercise more. Ready to try it out? Here are five simple ways to get started practicing gratitude:
Set aside five minutes at night: Use this time to think of one — or more — great moments from during your day.
Set a gratitude alarm: Set an alarm that prompts you to spend 60 minutes feeling appreciation.
Journal: Or, pen and paper to track the goodness in your life. (You can use the notes section in your phone, too!)
Use a calendar: Jot down what you're grateful for on a wall calendar, digital calendar or your planner.
Say thanks: Write a thank you note to someone who's made a difference in your life.
