Wake up and be grateful!
Did you have one of those moms who said you should be grateful for everything you have?
Did you roll your eyes at her when she said it?
Well, you should be grateful for having a mom like that.
Today, we’re talking about one of the mindfulness habits from 10-Minute Mindfulness: 71 Habits for Living in the Present Moment (affiliate link)
Awaken with gratitude
When you wake up each morning, what’s the first thought that enters your mind?
Is it “Ugh! I have to get ready to go to work”?
Or is it “I am so grateful for the sleep I got in this wonderful bed”?
If you develop the habit of waking with gratitude, you’re directing your thoughts away from negative emotions toward a more positive outlook on the day and your life.
The mindful habit of gratitude opens your eyes to “the large and small blessings we experience every day.”
This habit can also improve your health. Studies show it can increase happiness and reduce depression.
So, wake up and be grateful!
