Here’s a fun brain teaser: Imagine waking up with only what you had given thanks for yesterday.
Is your mind racing, trying to remember the balance between appreciating the good stuff and complaining?
No worries – let’s start fresh.
When you’re giving thanks, nothing is too small. Think of the great meal you had (and yes – a big cheeseburger qualifies!). The heart-to-heart talk with your kid or spouse that went ok. Or a break in rush hour traffic. You can make the list as long or short as you’d like.
Now say, “thank you.”
That’s it! There’s no special equipment, hours-long commitment, or a certain sitting position required.
You can also begin your day or drift off to sleep with a few heartfelt repetitions of, “Thank you, thank you, thank you”.
See how easy that was? It took less than 10 seconds.
If you’ve been giving some thought to what you’d like to keep from 2016, this technique is a quick way to seal the deal. Simply pay attention to the words and phrases that continue to find their way onto your thank you list.
Make “thank you” more than a mantra. Transform your life this year by raising it to an art form.
