Tip # 9: Make time for gratitude.

What are you grateful for?

Energy flows where attention goes.  Take 2 minutes a day to write down 5 things you are grateful for.

It seems taking time to be grateful is good for your health.

Gratitude can:

help you sleep better at night

help you through hard times

improve psychological, emotional and physical well-being

 

In the video below Oprah talks about what she knows about gratitude.

Sometimes it is difficult to be grateful. You may feel like you have nothing to be grateful for. You can start really small with things like I am grateful my toilet works. I know that sounds strange but if you have ever had a sewage flood in your house (like I have) you would be very grateful for a working toilet!  😉

    A working toilet! That is so worthy of gratitude; wish I’d thought of it. I was just posting on another person’s blog today that my lists may be written in a tongue-in-cheek style, but my gratitude is always sincere. I’m pretty much in awe of all that I have most of the time.
