Slowing down, pausing, and taking a moment to appreciate what we have is so important to our wellbeing, but in the hectic day-to-day rush of our lives we rarely take time for appreciation. In the United States we have the holiday of Thanksgiving, which is a day set aside for us to do exactly this, but how do we use the power of gratitude to improve our lives every single day?
In today’s episode I share with you my Thankful Five, five things I’m grateful for in the past year. I get super personal, I even cry in this episode, sharing the things that matter most to me.
Plus, for each of the Thankful Fives, I offer takeaways for you to apply to your own life, including why you need a village of support, purpose and impact, and at least one relationship you can count on in the middle of the night. I also talk about:
- The upward spiral of positivity that will have lasting benefit on your health
- The concept and practice of gratitude, and why it’s so important from the standpoint of positive psychology
- How to make a gratitude practice work for you to overcome busy-ness, burnout, frustration, negativity, boredom, and overwhelm
- How to create a gratitude practice that works for you, with specific instructions
- How to use your brain’s confirmation bias to support your gratitude practice
