Gratitude has been studied and this form of gratitude practice has been shown to be the most effective to change your brain circuitry, how you think and how you feel.
I'm not saying this is the ONLY way to practice gratitude. Something is always more than nothing. You love your practice - you do you, mama! If you want to get the most out of your gratitude practice give this one a try!
Think of time you received something and felt grateful for it. Take notes on this story - what was the struggle, what was the help and how did that impact you emotionally?
2. How did you feel?
What was your state before and after the event?
3. Sit with this story and the feelings
4. Repeat with the same story
Each time you read/think about this story the neural circuits in your brain get activated and change. It becomes easier and easier for these circuits to get activated the more you repeat.
You can do this in as little as 1 minute a day!
