Practice daily gratitude
One of the easiest ways we've found to include gratitude into our daily practice is... a painted rock, of course! This rock sits on our bathroom counter. That way, first thing in the morning, while brushing teeth, the rock is seen. It prompts the question "what is it that I am grateful for?" and helps start the day with a positive mindset. It's also seen in the evening, which again prompts the question. It's especially nice at the end of a long day to reflect back to the moments throughout the day and to think about why you're grateful.
IDEA: Paint a rock with this statement and include as a place setting at the Thanksgiving table. Guests will appreciate the gift and it may spark a nice conversation about why everyone is thankful.
More than just a warm fuzzy feeling
There's more to gratitude than just being thankful. Research actually shows that there's science behind practicing daily gratitude and that it can have long-term benefit to your health and well-being.
