“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.” -Buddha
All of us have something to be thankful about – problem is with our conditioning. We mope for things we don’t have – taking things we have for granted. If we want to be happy in life, we have to change this and have an attitude of gratitude.
Initially it is difficult – but practice makes it a simple and happy thing to do. Begin by making a note of moments that made you feel happy in a day. By keeping a record of all the happy or good things that have happened in the course of the day – you learn a lot about yourself. Include people, happenings, things and even attitude. It may be in form or a physical journal, a file on your computer, or a simply sticky note on your mobile. Happyho also provide best Meditation classes and yoga classes in Noida and Delhi NCR India area.
Nothing else empowers you as much as the attitude of gratitude. Gradually, make it a practice to note down three to five things every day that you are grateful about. It not only makes you appreciative but also leads you to achieve greater success in life. Gratitude transforms your life forever.
Once you get into the practice of gratitude, you would find attitude of gratitude changing your life. How you ask? In hundred different ways is the answer. Following are just a few of the positive changes that you witness in life:
Gratitude shifts your mind set. Instead of waiting passively for your life to change, you look for solutions. You start noticing opportunities knocking on your door. It makes you positive and proactive.
Gratitude creates solutions. Suddenly you see yourself evolving from being a cribber to be  a solution finder in your personal and professional lives. Just observe pain triggers for a few days and keep a list as they pop up. Then try to set some time at the end of the week, 15 minutes should be enough, to look at those triggers and brainstorm solutions.
No one like whiners and complainers – they spoil the entire environment. Positive energy is contagious. It does not only draw other people but makes them positive too. Get excited about positive thoughts – convert them into positive words and then actions.
Gratitude makes you humble. You lose I, me and myself mentality. It checks the ego and makes you appreciate beautiful things happening in your life. It empowers us and makes us grateful, giving and grounded human beings.
Gratitude helps you heal faster. Though loss of a dear one might hurt you for a long time – practicing gratitude makes you smile for all the beautiful moments you have spent with him/her.
Most important of all, gratitude enables us to become the best versions of ourselves. More grateful you are, happier you are doing better and happier things. Finally you reach contentment – happy in your thoughts, words and actions.
“If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.” – Harold Kushner
