Gratitude Can Transform Your Life In Only A Few Minutes Each Day

Gratitude can transform your life. If you start celebrating the little things, and feel appreciation everyday, you'll notice a shift right away.

It’s that time of year when everyone’s talking about being grateful.

If you’re already getting your gratitude on regularly, AMAZING! You’re on track to reaping the benefits of an expanded sense of wellbeing.

But if you’re still putting it off because you don’t see the point in writing down a few things each day, and you’re thinking there is no way this will transform anything in your life. It’s simply not the case.

Gratitude can transform your life. If you start celebrating the little things, and feel appreciation everyday, you'll notice a shift right away.

There’s a lot of research lately pointing to the connection between expressing gratitude and being happier.

So if there’s anytime of year to put this into practice, it’s now, when you’ve got the current of the mainstream boosting you along.

I’m a journal girl so writing stuff down feels natural to me. But if this isn’t you, I’d like you to give it a try. You don’t need a fancy book or anything (I often use old notebooks leftover from the kids’ schools supplies). You just need to open yourself up to appreciation.

It was Oprah who first got me into practicing gratitude years ago when she spoke about the book, Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach. I started writing down the 5 things I was grateful for in each day, and noticed a shift pretty quickly.

In this video, I talk about how I used the practice in my early motherhood days when dealing with a colicky baby.

Click play to watch the video and let me know in the comments if you’ve noticed how gratitude can transform your life.

In the video, I refer to an app I’ve been using, Breathe 11:11, which ties in nicely with a gratitude practice. The way it works is at 11:11 you’ll get a notification prompting you to take a deep breath, make a heartfelt wish, and connect with everyone else doing the same thing.

    I agree that it’s so important to practice gratitude every day. It makes a difference in how you feel and just your overall attitude getting through the day.

  2. It really does! Once we realize this we can shift our attitudes so easily.
