COUNT YOUR BLESS­INGS

My Weekly Special - - Contents -

Ex­ten­sive re­search at the Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia has re­vealed that peo­ple who view life as a gift and con­sciously ac­quire an “at­ti­tude of grat­i­tude” will feel more el­e­vated, en­er­gised and inspired by life. All the sci­en­tific ev­i­dence demon­strates that the grat­i­tude habit is very good for us, bring­ing fun and laugh­ter into our lives and help­ing us to with­stand ev­ery­day dis­ap­point­ments and set­backs. Peo­ple who count their bless­ings find it eas­ier to take a chance, break out of a rut and em­brace new ex­pe­ri­ences.

3 Ways to de­velop an at­ti­tude of grat­i­tude:

◆ Sim­ply con­sider all that you have to be grate­ful for. Look around you with thank­ful eyes. ◆ No­tice the kind­ness and pos­i­tiv­ity of oth­ers and ap­pre­ci­ate how this makes you feel. ◆ Write a grat­i­tude list be­fore you go to sleep at night.
