It’s a proven fact that our brains can’t be in a state of misery/pain/frustration/anger/sadness at the same time as appreciation. If you’re in a funk, the best way to wiggle out is by saying “thank you,” noticing the positive things that are going on in and around you.
Creating a gratitude practice, in which you deliberately seek out things for which to be grateful, can help create the positive shift you may be seeking. To get started, take Whole Living’s Gratitude Quiz and measure your gratitude quotient.
Then, check out the tips to boost your gratitude practice on my Facebook page. I’ll be posting them all week and I hope you’ll try them. Let us know about their impact on your life by commenting here on the blog.
