3 Ways to Add Gratitude Into Your Day

The month of November is always a time when we remind ourselves what we are thankful for. In business it may be a strong loyal client base, a contract win, or even the fact that we enjoy doing what we do. For personal gratitude, it may be our family, our friends, or even the barista who makes our morning coffee exactly to our liking every time we stop in.

The thing about gratitude that is important to remember, is that it really should be something to think about and demonstrate all year long, and not just when the calendar reaches the month of November.

It is easy for all of us to get wrapped up in our daily lives. With the stress of deadlines, bills that need to be paid, phone calls or emails that need to be returned, and demands on our time, it is easy to forget about being grateful.
Here are 3 ways to add gratitude into your day:

  1. Keep a daily gratitude journal – at the end of the day, write down at least one thing you are grateful for.  Look back on the this journal anytime you are feeling overwhelmed to see how good life really is.
  2. Express your appreciation to the people you work with or spend time with.  A simple compliment or sending out a thank you note can really make someone’s day (and boost your own mood, too!)
  3. Don’t complain for 24 hours. This might seem strange, but it will be amazing to realize how quickly you might jump to complaints rather than solutions.

So, as we move through this month, and towards 2016, make it a New Year resolutions to add daily gratitude into your life, and let us know what happens.
