Good Morning!!! Tuesday Gratitude Practice is here!!! How will you take what you are grateful for through the rest of your day? This isn't just about writing it down and sending it back… put it out there! Let the world feel your appreciation! Let's make a difference.
This only takes a few moments to do but gives to you for much, much longer. So put down whatever you are doing and take a couple of minutes for yourself. Every Tuesday morning I am going to ask you to write down 5 things that you are grateful for and email them to me (keep for yourself as well). What are you feeling gratitude around? Here are mine for this week:
There are no right or wrong answers. It is about what you are grateful for. It is proven that doing this once a week for three months (actually just 9 weeks) makes you happier, healthier, exercise more and less sensitive to perceived slights. You will sweat the small stuff less and focus on what really matters.
So… what are you waiting for???
Food for thought:
Play. Have fun. Do something that is silly. Make up a fun fantastical story. Start a relay race with your co-workers. Try to see who can get through a checkout lane faster. Play tag or hide and seek. Roll down a hill. Do some jumping jacks. See how long you can hold your breath, cross your eyes or stand on one leg. Try to move your ears or curl your tongue. Stare at the stars. Guess the number of steps to your favorite coffee shop or restaurant then walk there to see if you were right. Make up a new name for yourself and your friends. Eat some animal crackers. Play hopscotch. Sing your favorite song out loud. Learn how to moonwalk. Take time to check out that weird bug next time you see it. Imagine more, there always is. Love someone who you never thought you would. Take time and laugh at nothing and everything. See the yummy. Cry and then laugh. Play, live, love… be.
