I have a clipboard/note pad that has, “Start each day with a grateful heart,” written across the front. And this last week I decided to take it seriously. Most days I wake up, get ready for the day, and go for it. I rarely go through the motions of actually starting each day with a thankful heart.
So this week I started.
Before getting out of bed I thought through what I’m thankful for in life and focused on that before facing the day and you know what? It made life better. I was less discouraged, less annoyed at little things, and overall more thankful throughout the day. It’s not earth shattering and being thankful is something I hear a lot, but very few people seem to do it.
This week here are some ways to be more thankful:
- Create a thankful jar
- Start each day with a thankful moment
- Write someone a thank you card and actually mail it to them
Here’s to living more thankful lives! 🙂
