Mindfulness and thankfulness are intertwined and can complement one another without being forced. It helps to conduct a daily mindful practice if you wish to be more appreciative. Think about how you think or feel in that moment every time something happens in your day that you can channel with mindfulness. Allow your mind to stray to what you’ll do next or what you’ll need to do next week.

Simply sit in the present moment, notice how you are feeling, and be grateful for what you have. The more you do it, the more it becomes a habit that you don’t even realize you’re doing.

Express your Gratitude to Others

You are not required to keep all of your thankfulness to yourself! The more you express your thanks to others, the more gratitude you will feel for yourself. You are not required to keep all of your thankfulness to yourself!

Thank someone who does you a favor, holds a door open for you, lends an ear, or offers friendship. Tell individuals how much you appreciate them and how they’ve made a difference in your life.

Be More Interested in WHY You are Thankful

Ask yourself questions about how you feel about something if you’re having problems keeping up with your thankfulness practice. Be more inquisitive in general to discover what brings you joy and what you are grateful for. Discover what makes you happy by becoming curious about your own mind and thoughts.

Are you more of an extrovert who appreciates time alone at home, or are you more of an introvert who enjoys being with others? Are you someone who enjoys a good book or prefers to watch movies? How do you feel about a gentle fitness regimen and nutritional food? What do you usually feel grateful for on a daily basis?
