“The more you find in life to be grateful for, the more you will find to be grateful for.” As you build a practice of gratitude, it starts to shift your mindset, and your brain starts looking for the good that happens in each and every day.

Welcome back to another edition of health hack as I continue talking about the power of gratitude, and a quote that I love to share is, the more you find in life to be grateful for, the more you will find to be grateful for. Because as you build a practice of gratitude, it starts to shift your mindset, your brain starts looking for the good that happens in each and every day, because it knows you're going to be writing your gratitude journal at the end of the night before you go to bed, or perhaps it's first thing in the morning. And it starts to notice these things, as you start to think, oh, I want to write that in my journal. And the more you train your brain this way, the more your brain starts to focus on the good. And it's easier and easier to come up with all the little things in your life, and the big things that you are grateful for. And there's so many when we stop and slow down and pay attention. And as this happens, it starts to shift our mindset. And we're looking for the good in the world instead of the negative. And as we do that, we feel better about life. And as we start feeling better about life, we start feeling happier, more joyful. And this actually changes our physiology. Because we know that people who are happy, have stronger immune systems. And people that are maybe more in the place of depression and sadness, have weaker immune systems. There's lots of research out there about that. And so start to look for the good, the gratitude, even if your circumstances feel really awful right now, you can pull yourself out of those awful circumstances, simply by starting to be grateful for just those very small things, and build on that and notice how your life changes. I've been doing a gratitude journal now for about six years. And at the end of the first year of doing that, somebody asked me what is the thing that you did this year that changed your life the most. And as I thought about that, I realized that it was my gratitude journal, because it shifted my entire mindset as to how I view the world, how I view my life. And I felt like I was walking on air life felt good, life felt easy. And all that I changed was implementing a gratitude journal. So start one for yourself, set a timer. Just write down things that you're grateful for. Start with just three things and build on that as you start to notice more and more things. You can start writing, you know, maybe 10 things each day or just writing for 10 minutes and just start that daily practice.
