Today I traveled to work by ferry.
I was so grateful to go to work by ferry today.
Usually, I have to drive on the motorway to work.
However, today I worked in our new office in the City for the first time.
I have worked and studied in the City for many years in the past, so I know the streets well.
However, today was different.
I looked up at the big skyscrapers.
I have been practicing daily gratitude.
I keep a gratitude journal and write about what I am grateful for before I go to sleep.
Keeping a gratitude journal helps me acknowledge the beautiful world next to me.
Opens doors to new relationships and possibilities
Motivation to exercise
Strengthens immune system
Improved physical health
Enhanced empathy and reduced aggression
Increased mental strength
Reduces social comparison which increases self-esteem (less comparing to other people who might have more money or a better job than me)
Reduces toxic emotions like envy, resentment, and frustration
So, HOW can I be Grateful?
I highly recommend keeping a gratitude journal to bring gratitude into your daily life.
Start by writing 3 things you are grateful for that day.
Studies have shown writing gratitude before sleep makes one’s mindset positive aiding in sleep.
I am grateful to exercise this morning.
I am grateful for that person’s funny joke.
I am grateful for the beautiful sky.
Gratitude is the most healing of all emotions
Being able to appreciate what the world is giving has made me much happier.
I was so grateful for the little things in the day.
