How And When To Practice Gratitude

Giving thanks and appreciating even just the simple things in your day to life is super easy to do…

However, despite knowing all the benefits of practicing gratitude and its simplicity, it’s so easy to forget to do it on a daily basis.

Sure it’s easy to feel thankful in the moment, like when you get a bonus at work…

But understandably, not so easy to appreciate the beautiful clear blue skies while busy running errands!

So to ensure you’re getting your daily gratitude practice in, try writing down the positive things you’re grateful for in a gratitude journal every morning before your day starts!

For even more gratitude (and going to bed full of joy and appreciation) you can also jot them down just before you go to sleep at night.


So there you have it, 500 things to be grateful for!

Has this list inspired you to start practicing gratitude in your own life?

Remember, the benefits are endless!

So what are you waiting for? Get started with practicing gratitude today!
