With the hustle and bustle of life in the 21st century and all that that brings, it’s easy to see what needs to get done, where we are lacking, and how successful other people appear to be.
There are so many incredible benefits with the technology we have today, from the Internet, to mobile phones, to social media. But what we often find is that these things create a gap between where we are and where we think we should be. This can lead to guilt, anxiety, stress, and even depression. If we feel like what we’re doing and where we are isn’t ever good enough, it’s not surprising we feel like this, and so we continue to focus on what’s missing from our lives.
Instead, I suggest implementing a daily gratitude practice. Write down 5 things in your life that happened that day that you’re grateful for. These can be huge events or just small things that make you appreciate life.
This could easily be done every evening before you go to sleep, and it’s a great place to focus your mind before resting for the night. After you make your list, go back through each item. Close your eyes, imagine it, and feel the gratitude in your body.
By focusing on gratitude instead of lack, you’re setting yourself up for more happiness and attracting more good into your life.
Try this for a week and let me know how life shifts for the better.
