Sometimes when life gets you down, one of the best ways to pick ourselves up is to realize all that we have and what we should be  thankful for. Gratitude can put reverse our mindset of what we don’t have and where we are not, to all of the blessings we have. An easy way to practice gratitude is with a gratitude journal. Research shows that if you spend 5 minutes a day writing about what you are grateful for, this can make you happier.

By practicing seeing what you are thankful for, you create positive feedback loops. Isn’t it fascinating how powerful the mind is?
