1. Mindfulness – to truly engage in gratitude one really has to be ‘present in the moment’. Without being mindful the opportunity for gratitude literally slips through the fingers of the mind. Therefore, to embark on this wonderful journey you must practise being present in each moment. The mind that is able to appreciate ‘the now’ can easily see what to give thanks for.
2. Blessings – it is so easy to complain and most of us do it automatically and systematically. We are busy drowning in our own waste thoughts. This attitude of complaint makes us negative, pessimistic and tired. There is far more benefit in finding and counting our blessings, great and especially small. Try it and see for yourself!
