Gratitude boosts our well-being in tremendous ways. But how do you cultivate an attitude of gratitude? Whether it’s appreciating the warmth of the sun on your skin, enjoying your morning tea or noticing the miracle of taking a breath, this guided practice by expert Deborah Quibell will help you become more aware of the small joys that we often take for granted.
Being appreciative and expressing thanks is about far more than the polite manners our parents used to teach us growing up. Gratitude is a powerful form of self-care. It’s a simple practice, with instant benefits for the body, mind & soul.
Scientific research consistently shows a strong link between gratitude and happiness. While invoking positive thoughts and feelings, gratitude also helps us let go of toxic emotions such as envy, frustration and anger. On a physical level, practicing gratitude reduces levels of the stress hormone cortisol and encourages healthy behavior such as exercise and good eating habits. In addition, practicing gratitude has been linked to better sleep.
Ultimately, living with an attitude of gratitude makes you happier and healthier. Tap into the power of being thankful with this guided gratitude meditation.
