An Attitude of Gratitude - What You Need to be a Happy Person

Are you truly grateful for what you've got in your life?

It is highly important to be thankful for the small things which often get taken for granted.

If you can't appreciate positivity already present in your life then how can you expect to recognise positivity in the future?

Whatever emotions you focus on the most, you will receive more of.


Count your blessings

Rather than putting all of your energy into focusing on what you don't have, why not put that energy into focusing on what you do have?

One of the best ways of being more grateful in life is by literally counting your blessings.

You can either make a list of the things you are grateful for or say it out loud to yourself in the mirror.

I would recommend you try to list at least 5 unique things you appreciate on a daily basis.

Make a gratitude journal

Put that little bit of extra creativity and love into your list of things you appreciate.

You could turn your list into a full blown scrap book. Fill this book with photos of people you love, recipes, animals, nature photos, art, song lyrics. You know what I'm saying, just whatever tickles your fancy.

It'll be your personal book. Your very own little bit of space to make you feel better about your life.

Whenever you find yourself feeling a bit down, just add something new to your gratitude  journal or just flick through it and you'll be surprised how much better you will feel.

Remember: gratitude is an attitude

An attitude is all in your head.

What you really need to do is rewire your brain and adopt a new way of thinking.

Do whatever you can physically to help yourself make this change (like counting your blessings and keeping a gratitude journal). On top of that you also need to go deep inside your mind and really change your perspective from the source.

Practice daily meditation

Connect with your inner self and give that part of you a good bit of attention.

Use guided meditation if deep relaxation does not come naturally to you. Play nature sounds or yoga music. Do whatever works for you as an individual.

No part of you is as unique and special as the depths of your subconscious mind.

Once you manage to get yourself sufficiently relaxed, just put your focus on something that you are grateful for in your life. Could be a special person whom you love, could be a memory or even something you like about yourself.

Let your mind take you where it wants to go and just see what happens. If you come across anything negative, just observe it and dismiss it.

Meditation does not work if it is forced. You have to just allow yourself to relax. Give in to the relaxation.

Conclusion

The beliefs that are most prominent in your mind directly create your reality.

Keep on working on focusing on how lucky you are and how much stuff you are grateful for. Soon you will start noticing that more things start to appear in your life which you are to be grateful for.

Notice a pattern?

Like a lot of things in life, it is a cycle.
