ATTITUDE FOR GRATITUDE
We are living in unprecedented times. With the onset of the pandemic, it has become absolutely difficult to leave worries aside and deal with the ebbs and troughs of life.
Holding on to positive thoughts is becoming an everyday challenge. The widespread negative news has only added to the thoughts of what is wrong with the world around us.
WHAT DOES GRATITUDE MEAN?
It can hugely contribute to our mental wellness and help us stay optimistic. To endure mental strength one should be grateful for the things we have.
The most effective yet very simple way of leading a happier life is to take out a few moments, a few minutes to think about things we are blessed with & can be grateful for.
4 Most Effective Ways to Practice Gratitude
Even in these hard times, we can practice gratitude and find few things which can make us happy.
- Grateful For your Loved Ones
- Making gratitude a Habit
- Communicate and Seek Help
Grateful For your Loved Ones
Those few precious moments that we got to spend with our families after so many years. The time when we made Dalgona coffee, new dishes & all the things we’ve been waiting to do for many years.
Expressing thankfulness through words of gratitude can create a huge impact on your relationships. Being grateful can lift our mood, cheer us up & motivate us to live another day with the hope that this shall too pass.
– Sterling K. Brown”
Gratitude starts with self. Reflecting upon our day can help us to acknowledge what we do for ourselves and be grateful for it.
- think about 3 things that made you happy recently
- think about 2 people who stayed close to you during this lockdown
- jot down 5 activities you did during this lockdown with your family
Just a few words of self-appreciation and moments of self-exploration about our thoughts can pause all insecurities, anxieties, and bring a smile to your face. Being content with yourself is being grateful for every little thing you do for yourself.
Making Gratitude a Habit
Gratitude can be made a habit. We can focus on the things we are grateful for about 5-10 mins before going to bed or after just waking up. Try doing it for about a week, & the impact that it makes in your life.
– Will Durant
