As the seasons change and winter starts to…
There’s no denying it, the last few years have been tough for many people, and it’s probably been hard to find things to be thankful for. No matter how down you may feel, it’s important to remember the things that make life good. Making a list or journaling the things you’re thankful for can reduce stress and help you feel calmer, so why not give it a try? Here are a few examples to help you get started on your own list of what you’re thankful for (remember, keep it simple!).
loved ones to check with when life becomes overwhelming
No one should have to deal with stressful times alone. If you’re blessed with a group of people you can reach out to when times get tough, that’s something to be grateful for.
having time to relax after a stressful day
You work hard and deserve a break every now and then. “Me” time is important to give yourself a chance to relax and recharge, so you’re very lucky if you have time to unwind.
What’s better than going outside and taking a deep breath? If you’re fortunate to live in a part of the world where pollution isn’t a problem, take a moment to enjoy the fresh air.
The awesome thing about music is that there’s something for everyone to enjoy, and it’s a great way to bring people together. Take a moment and listen to your favorite song – you deserve it.
Of course, your list doesn’t have to be as deep as some of these. Being thankful for clean sheets, a gorgeous sunrise, or finishing a good book are all great things to add to your list. It’s up to you how you want to live with an “attitude of gratitude”.
