Tips to Cultivate Gratitude

Practice makes perfect – spend 2 minutes each evening thinking of one (or more) thing(s) that you are thankful for.  Here are some things you might be thankful for:

  1. Be grateful for your physical and emotional healthy – we take for granted the ability to walk across the street or kick a ball
  2. Be grateful for what you accomplish
  3. Be grateful for the ability to help others
  4. Be grateful for obstacles or challenges, they provide the opportunity to grow as a person
  5. Be grateful for friends, family and pets
  6. Be grateful for food, shelter and clothing
  7. Be grateful for a beautiful sunset/sunrise, the colour of the fall leaves, the softness of a cosy blanket – use all your senses to appreciate the world around you
