Put it into Action
1. Allow yourself to be grateful all the time
To make yourself habitual of being grateful to everyone who helps you in some way, you need to be aware of your thoughts consciously. Deliberately give thanks to people and feel thankful inside as well.
Kind-hearted or mostly who have a positive view towards life usually do not find it difficult to practice. However, if you find it difficult, you may look around the people who are thankful to you or others. Sometimes, observation helps us to acquire what we want.
2. Acknowledge who you are grateful for
To know for whom, you are grateful for, you may ask questions to yourself. Such as, what am I really grateful for? Who is the reason behind this behavior? You may find it obvious that the list might have family, friends, or some colleagues. Hence, here is the key that you need to pick in order to unlock the door for gratitude.
3. Keep a gratitude record
You need to find the reasons why you are grateful and to whom you are grateful for. You should have to write every day the blessings you are grateful for. Such as:
You could keep a diary to write every day at least one reason to be grateful for.
To practice gratitude you may write positive words like thanks/thank you/You made my day or even any good thing that happened to you. Paste them on your wall in front of your eyes, this wave might signal you to be calm with your negative thoughts and let you be grateful to people and God.
One of the best-known exercises could be to thank someone or even yourself in your head, for an idea that comes into your mind.
