Practicing Gratitude

  • Apr 7, 2021

Hey, everybody just wanted to put on a quick video today about something that I've been trying to focus on a lot more, which is practicing gratitude. Morgan agrees, so does Ainslee, she agrees and Reagan too. We should practice gratitude. Yeah. Okay. So there are lots of benefits to practicing gratitude.

 It helps to improve happiness. It reduces stress and anxiety. It helps to improve the physical function of our bodies. Our minds will naturally go to all the negative things. No matter how many good things happen in the day, we're going to focus on those few negatives that ended up happening.

 I found myself doing that a lot this week. Gratitude can take on many different forms. You can meditate on gratitude. You can do this as a family. That's something we've been doing. Our girls would love to share with you all, some things that they're grateful for.

 Ainslee, what are you grateful for? 

I'm grateful for all the Chiropractors.

 And Reagan, what are you grateful for? 

I'm grateful for Mommy and Daddy.

And Morgan, what are you grateful for?

Okay. So I guess I'm grateful for giggles and spending some time. 

I'm grateful for my whole family because my whole family helps me a lot. Thank you. Okay, thank you so much. I'm grateful for all of their energy. I'm grateful for the sweat pants they get to wear all day today. Grateful that we saw some sun yesterday.

 Gratitude can be big things or it can be really small little things that you want to focus on. One thing that I've started doing again, is keeping a gratitude journal. So, at night, before I go to bed, I write down at least three things that I'm grateful for. Putting your mind at ease and focusing on happy things will help you to have a more restful sleep.

I hope this is helpful for you all, not too distracting with all the chaos going around in the background, but I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your day.
