#5 Express Gratitude – Simple Rituals To Reach Your Potential

5. Express gratitude. Gratitude fosters happiness, which is why Mike keeps a gratitude journal. Every morning, he writes out at least five things he’s thankful for. In times of stress, he’ll pause and reflect on 10 things he’s grateful for. What are you grateful for today?

I’m grateful to have awaken this morning, I’m grateful that while I am certainly not where I want to be, I am working toward what I want — I have a plan, and that’s the important part; having that plan. Like Mike, I do keep a journal, but it’s a journal for my creativity, and journal for new words that I learn, and other progressive ideas that will aide me in my plan.

Just take a moment…. and reflect on what you are grateful for — I’ll even give you a quick and relaxing breathing exercise while you do it.

Breathe In WHILE Counting 4
HOLD Counting to 7
EXHALE Counting to 8
REPEAT REPEAT … until your mind is clear.
