COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS
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.
