When prompted to think about gratitude, and list the things we’re grateful for, it’s easy to give the same answers every time:
“My family’s health”
These things are undoubtedly important — we should be grateful for them. But that pesky word, “should,” can be telling. Anything with a “should” attached to it can feel heavy. Pure gratitude, on the other hand, feels light — like a warm glow spreading through you.
Plus, when we recite the same list of things we’re thankful for over and over again, our authentic feelings of gratitude can get stale.
So how can we tap into gratitude in a way that feels fresh each time?
We’ve put together a printable exercise that helps you do just that. (Click the link or the image below to print the exercise.)
