How a gratitude practice can change your view of life

- Tracey Hancock, REALiving Coaching

Life sure can get crazy busy. Rushing here, there and everywhere trying to fit even more into the day (and night!). Crikey it can be exhausting, can't it?

Busyness + exhaustion = life seems terrible

It's hard to see the good in life when you're tired. Your brain is wired to notice threats and negativity. While that was useful generations ago when there were hungry lions wanting to snack on you, it can be problematic these days. Now when your brain is tired it'll be even more inclined to find examples of what's going wrong, what's not working, and any other negative observations it can find.

There is something you can do about it.

What are you grateful for?

Take a moment now to write down 3 things you're grateful for in your journal.

I know it seems simple, almost too simple, but what have you got to lose by trying it out?

Noticing what you're grateful for is something you can do anywhere, anytime. I particularly like doing it in the evening as it helps calm my mind and that means I'll sleep well! 

So, what are you grateful for today?

Let me know how you go with this, I'd love to hear from you.

Know someone, someone you love and care for, who needs to hear this message too? Please share.
