Record all of these in your journal. It doesn’t matter how small the events were – if they caused you to express gratitude then make an entry about them.


If you want to you can carry your gratitude journal around with you wherever you go. In this way you can record gratitude moments as they happen. Always remember to state the reasons for your gratitude and how this made you and the receiver feel.



 

Three Things

In the mornings when you get up grab your gratitude journal and write down three things that you are very grateful for in your life right now. These can be small things or big things – it really doesn’t matter. So, for example the fact that you woke up and you have another day to look forward to is a good reason to be grateful.


As you write each one down think about the reason why you are so grateful and experience how this makes you feel. So, if you are grateful to have a specific person in your life then write down why they are so important to you and the feelings that you have about them.


Repeat this process before you go to bed each night. It will help you to sleep a lot better because you will lay your head down feeling happy and content with your life. So go through the “three things” process at the start and end of each day to really accelerate your gratitude.


 


An Act of Kindness a Day


It is very easy for you to perform an act of kindness for others every day. An act of kindness can be something small such as giving someone praise or encouragement. You can start with your family. Provide some help to them in some way. You need to change your mindset to look for ways that you can perform small acts of kindness each day.


Think about who has helped you recently, a family member, co-worker, or friend. Write them a note thanking them for their help and mention the specific thing that they helped you with. You should always say “thank you” to people with sincerity when they do something for you. But this is not enough as a thank you is expected as the norm.


You will get a lot of satisfaction from helping other seven in a small way. When you perform your daily act of kindness, note the reaction from the receiver of this act. It is very likely that their face will light up and they will say some very nice things to you. This will make you feel warm inside and inspire you to keep going with your gratitude.
