Welcome back to the Thank God It's Friday podcast! Today I'm sharing my best gratitude habits and practices that can and should be implemented on a daily basis. Remember, how we spend our days ends up being how we live our life, so I chose to get really intentional about how I was going about each day. Once I found one habit that worked for me it all became easier to implement regularly … SPOILER ALERT.. it was #1 ;)

I hope these 10 simple habits really help you add more gratitude to your life, which in turn will increase your happiness. Can I get a hell yeah!?

10 Ways To Feel Grateful Each Day

  1. Have some kind of signal or trigger that reminds you to practice gratitude. One example can be seeing a bird and then listing off what you’re grateful for.

  2. Start your morning with five things you’re grateful for. Do this while doing something you already naturally love.

  3. Post it notes and pretty graphics with reminders and affirmations around the house, office and car work great.
  4. When you’re feeling overwhelmed or stressed, name what part of the situation you are grateful for. If it’s a stressful day, go out of your way to compliment someone. If you feel ballsy spark up a conversation.

  5. Make a list of things that you’re grateful for that make you extremely happy.. like actually change your mood, happy. Pull that list out when you’re having a hard time getting into a grateful mood.

  6. "Grateful Minute"  reminder. Ask anyone around you when that alarm goes off what they are grateful for.

  7. Surround yourself with people who practice gratitude regularly. This includes your social media, entertainment, coworkers and friend groups.

  8. Call, text or connect with someone each day and remind them that you’re grateful for your relationship.

  9. Claim your new emotional home. Act like the card you were dealt was the one that you wanted all along. Gratitude is now the emotion you come home to (it's no longer stress, overwhelm, fear, anxiety, etc).

  10. Identify your anti-self versus best self personalities. Name the person who is grateful verses the person who always sees things with the glass half empty.
