Dr. P. Murali Doraiswamy, an expert in brain and mind health, once said, “If [thankfulness] were a drug, it would be the world’s best-selling product with a health maintenance indication for every major organ system.”
I so believe that to be true. Sometime life throws you a curve that you wonder how the hell you are going to handle it. You do in a couple of ways – major stress which is so detrimental to your health or you show gratitude for the great things you already have and you will be surprised how well you handle a difficult situation.
Wisdom of the ancient dictate that events are just that Events, some perceived to be good or bad. It is your belief about the event that upsets you, not the fact that it happened.
Here is a few short ways to handle situations with Gratitude
Write thank-you notes
Give verbal praise and say “thank you” more often
Give thanks at each meal
Change your perception – Its up to you t0 handle a situation the best you can
Be mindful of your nonverbal actions – smile or a hug
Prayer and/or mindfulness meditation – Grateful for, such as a pleasant smell, a cool breeze or a lovely memory.
Nightly gratitude ritual written down – This is an excellent habit to get into
Spend money on activities instead of things – spend money on experiences.
Embrace the idea of having “enough” – Minimalist lifestyle
Spend more time in nature and barefoot
Try tapping – Glad I found this article cause have not done this in months (showed in video). This is well worth watching.
Here is a video, not a short one but one that could affect the rest of your life in a way you never thought possible.
