100 Things I Feel Grateful For!

"Gratitude is not just a feeling, it is a way of being. It is also a practice."



Research on gratitude has consistently found practicing it to be of benefit in many areas

of life. Gratitude helps people regularly experience more positive emotion, relish good

experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.


According to the Harvard Medical School Journal, Gratitude is "a thankful appreciation

for what an individual receives, whether tangible or intangible."


"With gratitude, people acknowledge the goodness in their lives. In the process, it is

usually recognised that the source of that goodness lies at least partially outside

themselves. As a result, gratitude also helps people connect to something larger than

themselves as individuals — whether to other people, nature, or a higher power.


Gratitude is a way for people to appreciate what they have instead of always reaching for

something new in the hopes it will make them happier, or thinking they can't feel

satisfied until every physical and material need is met. Gratitude helps people refocus on

what they have instead of what they lack."


Like any other skill, gratitude improves and develops with practice.


Today's task (which may take more than just one day) gets your gratitude muscles

working!


The task is to write a list of 100 things/reasons you are grateful. It could be anything -

your tastebuds which make it possible for you to enjoy your favorite dessert....the blue

sky so you can watch the clouds move........your house.....your dog.....the flower in your

driveway............The list is, perhaps, endless! In fact 100 just doesn't seem long

enough.....why not make it 1000 reasons!


Here is a downloadable worksheet to help you keep track of them all!
