A Grateful Experiment

March 6, 2013 § Leave a comment

So, in my never-ending quest to become a Glass Half Full kind of person, I just added something new to my morning routine: Rather than charging right into thoughts about everything that I have to do on a given day, I’ve been making myself think of at least four things that I am grateful for first. I know it seems silly, but there are studies that point to increased overall happiness in people who express gratitude for the things that they have. So, I think that getting the mind into a positive place first thing in the morning is not such a bad idea. The funny thing is that in just a few days, it has become easier to make a list of more than four things and each one of them makes me smile. And I have mentioned that you can do this while you are making the bed? I do. So, no added time to the morning routine. šŸ˜‰
