Have you found yourself constantly focusing on what you want, rather than appreciating what you have? Try practicing gratitude, it could be a healthy choice for you. At DASHA®, we believe gratitude stimulates happiness and well-being.
Gratitude exercises come in many forms. Start by saying thank you more. Often, we move through our daily tasks without taking a moment to recognize the people who add to our lives.
Keep a gratitude journal and at the end of the day, take a few minutes to reflect on what you are grateful for. Maybe you learned something new, caught up with an old friend you hadn’t seen in a while or made it to the gym before work. Taking the extra moment to reflect on what you are especially thankful for will add to your quality of life and relieve some stress.
Replace your negative thoughts with positive sentiments. When you walk into a restaurant and find out there is an hour wait, replace your frustrations with the opportunity to check out the bar or explore your local community. Obstacles that are out of your control should not create negativity. Instead, learn how to make the best out of the situation you are in. If there is a will, there is a way!
