What if you spent the first 5 or 10 minutes of your day practicing gratitude? Those 10 minutes you spend lying in bed after your alarm goes off, your brain telling you to get up but your body resisting… What if you just stayed there, laid there? Start your day with happy thoughts.
Come back next week and tell me what you’ve been grateful for. I’ll share some of mine too. And I’ll also be back with another challenge for the week!
Check out this excellent article by Leo Babuta of Zen Habits on The Transformative Power of the Gratitude Habit. My favourite example is: “When I procrastinate with a project, I can look at why I’m grateful to be able to work on that project.”
