Here are 3 ideas to consider:
Quote of the Week
1. “There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy.” – Ralph H. Blum
Research shows that gratitude is a key to feeling happy. We know that counting your blessings can turn around your day.
But in my life, I struggle to remember to do it. (Heck, some days it’s all I can do to keep my kids’ names straight…)
So, when my daughter came home from school with a weekly thankfulness activity, I thought it was genius. She was smiling wide about her blessings.
What if ONCE a week was more realistic?
So, instead of finding the time daily, could you set aside 20 minutes every Thursday? Or Sunday?
Could you enjoy feeling thankful while you drink your Saturday cup of ☕?
And keep it simple. A once-a-week practice could mean you:
- Answer gratitude journal prompts
- Look at a few Thankfulness quotes
- Write down the best things that happened to you this week
After you’re done, take a second to enjoy the abundance you’ve created. It’s amazing! And you did that with only a few minutes.
