Greetings friend! Today I'd like to share how to turn your day around and accelerate your life with one simple gesture. In fact, this gesture is so simple that despite our busy lives can be accomplished with little effort.
I just left the gym and am in a positive state of mind. One of the reasons I feel this way is because of the endorphins released during exercise. Another reason though is because of the thoughts going through my head during the session which were thoughts of gratitude.
What does it mean to be grateful? It means being thankful for the smaller things and the bigger things in your life. It could even mean being thankful for the so-called negative aspects of your life. I believe that everything happens for a reason even if we may not understand that reason.
The act of gratitude has the power to turn your day around. If you normally wake up groggy or in a fowl mood, then being grateful for different aspects of your life can counteract feelings of anxiety or dread about the day ahead.
What I did during my workout is go through and think about the "small things" that are often taken for granted in my life such as:
- Clean Water
What does it look like to have a gratitude session? The best way, in my opinion, is to write down the things you are grateful for in a journal or notebook of some kind. If you aren't near one at the time you are performing your session, then jot them down in your phone (we all have our phones at all times).
Here are some examples of what my gratitude sessions look and feel like...
What times of the day should you practice gratitude? Morning, afternoon, and evening are the times I recommend. Three gratitude sessions per day will set you on a path that many only dream about. A great way to remember 3 sessions is to partake in one at breakfast, one at lunch, and one at dinner.
Sometimes I write these out in a journal and other times I just meditate on as many things as I can think of. There are hundreds of things to be grateful for such as the blood that carries oxygen through your body to your cells or your lungs that breath on autopilot for you day and night.
Making a habit of gratitude will transform every area of your life my friend, I can guarantee it. Your health, your relationships, your wealth, your business, and your emotions. If you are brand new to this notion, then start with one session per day first thing in the morning.
Spend maybe 3-5 minutes meditating on 5-10 things you are grateful for in your life. If you can't think of that many, then focus on the things that you could be grateful for if you had them. And here's a little insider tip...what you focus on expands.
Whatever you spend time thinking about and feeling are what will be attracted into your life. So focus on the positive and on things that you want in your life and you will end up seeing more of it as time goes by.
I hope that this message helped you, friend! Go now and focus on what you are grateful for in this life. Write it down and meditate on it day and night. I can guarantee that it will transform and accelerate each and every area of your life. See, I told you this was a simple gesture!
P.S. I am grateful for you my friend. Thank you for reading and I will see you in the next vlog.
