It’s no secret that the power of thinking can have a huge impact on our lives. We are constantly being bombarded with messages of how our thoughts can “lift us up” and “pull us down,” and while this is true, there is another way to tap into the power of gratitude.
We’re often taught that gratitude logs help with the focus of your attention, from bad to good.
Sure, writing down things for which you are grateful can help boost your mood and shift your perspective from negative to positive.
It’s a great practice if you’re feeling overwhelmed or pessimistic; writing out what you’re grateful for can help give you perspective and remind yourself of all the good in your life.
But there is another way…
Make gratitude into a verb that you DO in the world. Don’t just think gratitude – Do and Show it.
To play on Carl Jung’s words… “You are what you do.”
With that, I invite you to think about how can you show your gratitude and who to.
