Exercise In Gratitude
Having gratitude makes us happier.
It sounds so cliché.
But it’s true.
It’s simply true.
If you don’t believe me, then try a little experiment. Every morning take a minute or two and write down 3 things that you are grateful for. Make sure that at least one of those things is something small, something that many might take for granted like having clean dry socks.. (We do that part because it trains your mind to look for the positive things in life.) Do the same thing in the evening. Basically, you start and end the day being (at least a little bit) grateful. If you do this long enough, you’ll realize that you have a lot of blessings and you’ll be happier.
BTW, this is part of my journaling routine that I do every morning and every evening. It’s a life changer and it’s only takes a couple of minutes. If you want to learn more about it, then go here.
But that’s not what this post is about. While listening to Oprah’s podcast, I discovered another exercise that will enhance our gratitude and make us even happier.
Here’s how it works.

Losing The Feeling Of Gratitude
The journaling exercise that you can do in the morning and the evening is very effective. It allows you to start and also the end the day in gratitude. But during the day, our emotions will go up and down according to circumstance and also to our reactions and responses to our situations and we lose those feelings of gratitude. It often isn’t until we regain those feelings of gratitude again until we journal again in the evening.
This exercise is to be used throughout the day. So we can keep that feeling.
What’s going right?
Take the time and ask yourself this question.
What’s going right?
Do this 2 or 3 times during the day. Do it even more than that if you need to. I personally set reminders for myself on the phone. Sometimes, I get the reminder when it’s not convenient for me, when I’m busy working on a project. I might even be flustered or frustrated with the process. Just as I think that I really don’t have time to be grateful, I also realize that this is when I need it most. By simply taking 30 seconds to recognize some of the things that are going right and being grateful for them, I’m able to calm my mind and work more effectively.
Sometimes I get the reminder when I do have time to focus. I might be on a walk when it comes. I love when this happens. I turn off what ever I was listening to (I listen to alot of audio books and podcasts on my walks) and I take an inventory of what’s going right in my life. The things that I’m most grateful for can’t be measured. Like personal achievements like bouncing back from a divorce or having loving relationships. Sometimes it brings me to tears.
Anyone who does this simple exercise can’t help but feel happier.
It’s impossible to be grateful and not be happier.
Why is this important?
When you are happier, you work harder and you work with more passion. Being happier makes you more productive. When you are more productive, you get more blessings and you get closer to your dreams.
Being grateful attracts more blessings.
