Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking. -Marcus Aurelius
How To Be Happy By Practicing Gratitude
- Keep a daily or weekly gratitude journal to list things you are thankful. I explain how to do this in my free video training, Cultivating Joy (you can watch it here).
- Make a gratitude collage using drawing or pictures.
- Practice gratitude at the dinner table.
- Make it part of your nighttime routine.
- Make a game of finding the hidden blessing in a challenging situation.
- When you feel like complaining, make a gratitude list instead. You’ll be amazed by how much better you’ll feel.
