Unlocking Gratitude

Here are two simple exercises you can use to build your gratitude muscles on a daily basis.  

1.  Journal three things you are grateful for to start your day.  Could be big things or small things. 

Here are some examples:

I’m grateful for my health. 
I’m grateful for the food I have in the kitchen. 
I’m grateful for the workout I did yesterday. 
I’m grateful for the $1,000 deal I closed
I’m grateful for the yoga mat I am sitting on.  
I’m grateful for my journal.

2.  Go for a five minute gratitude walk.  Set a timer on your phone/watch and go for a walk outside in nature.  As you walk, ask yourself, “What am I grateful for?”  

You can say big things or you can say small things.  Ideally speak it with declaration and joy to the world as your words and sound have a profound effect on your brain and nervous system.  

The most important thing is to be playful, curious and have fun with it.
