How do you feel when you wake up in the morning ?
Do you feel like throwing the alarm out the window, do you want to stay in bed and shut the world out ???
Let’s change this with a simple 5 minute exercise.
When you wake up tomorrow morning firstly be grateful that you have woken up to share another beautiful day and then think about 3 things that your are grateful for in your life right now.
You may be surprised to realise the things you are grateful for are very simple – the song playing on the radio, the briskness of the morning air, a great nights sleep .
It really is how you choose to look at things !
Find a way to be grateful for what you have in your life right now !
These are mine for today (note you can choose to use...I am grateful or I am thankful or I give thanks, whatever feels natural to you!):
1. I give thanks for the rainy weather that reminds me of my home town
2. I am grateful to spend the day with my grand child
3. I am thankful to have a blog where I can share my thoughts
After practicing this for a while you will start to see a shift in the way you look at things – instead of focusing on the negative you will naturally focus on the positive. Imagine you are cut off in traffic, you could choose to get abusive and enter into a negative mind set – or you could silently say to yourself – I am grateful I am OK and then let go of the situation .
