THANK-FULLNESS: The Practice of Gratitude
November is a month full of giving thanks around my house. We celebrate Thanksgiving, and if you watched my theme of the month, you know I also celebrate my birthday and my wedding anniversary, too.
My birthday gives me the chance to appreciate all the gifts in my life.
My anniversary allows me to stop and appreciate my soul mate and the relationship we have been cultivating for over 30 years.
I get the opportunity for a lot of practice being thankful in November!
Join me this month as I dive deeper into the PRACTICE OF GRATITUDE. In my podcast episode “Practicing Practical Gratitude” I talk about three simple tips and practical ways to add gratitude: NOTICE, FAKE IT, and SAVOR.
Notice is simply writing down a list of things you are grateful for today. People, places, things, situations. It can be anything! Aim for at least 5.
Fake it is faking a smile (or biting a pencil or your finger) which stimulates your brain to connect to appreciation emotions without even having to try!
Savor is taking a couple minutes to experience the sensations of gratitude by calling to mind one of the things you are grateful for and lingering in the feelings/sensations.
What if you did one gratitude practice every day this month?!
I invite you to experiment this month with a variety of ways to get grounded in the practice of gratitude – EVERY DAY! I promise it will rejuvenate your spirit and open your eyes to your rich, meaningful and magical life.
If you want a little more detail on any of the three practical gratitude techniques, head on over for a listen.
