Every year we set aside one day to remind ourselves of everything that we are grateful for. However it’s important to be mindful of the many things we have to be grateful for, every day. Here at HappyIn21 we try to incorporate being grateful into our way of life. It is actually scientifically proven that those of us who choose to be grateful on a daily basis are actually consistently more happy than those who do not.
Here are some tips on how to incorporate and maintain gratitude in your life on a day to day basis:
•Focus on what you do have instead of what you lack
•Be aware and live in the moment—try not to dwell on the past or on the future.
•Share feelings of love and positivity with your friends and family
•Feel a complaint coming on? Replace it with a statement of gratitude, either vocally or internally (or both!)
•Make a list or keep a journal of the many things you have to be grateful for
Just a small adjustment in the habits that make up your daily routine can result in a positive impact on your overall happiness and well being. You are capable! HappyIn21 wishes you positivity and warmth this holiday season. We are grateful for you!
