WHAT IS YOUR HAPPINESS? WAYS TO SHOW GRATITUDE BY LISA CYPERS KAMEN

By Lisa Cypers Kamen

Here are just a few ways to show gratitude in life:

1. List the things in your life you are grateful for and those things you take for granted, such as your health, home, family, friends, colleagues, car, and so on. Add all the things that you could not survive without, such as sunlight, air, water and food.

See how many things you can come up with. Keep this list with you, and refer to it anytime you get upset. See how long you remain upset!

2. Do something for someone for no reason other than simply wanting to do it. Have no attachment to the outcome. Pay for someone’s coffee at work, or compliment someone you don’t know very well.

3. Send a card of appreciation to someone whom you have not been in touch with for a while. You could take this even further by sending cards to five people letting them know how much they mean in your life.

4. Send a thank you note to someone who has done something for you, no matter how small it may seem to be.

5. Take time to feel awe and wonder at the world. Take the time to “stop and smell the roses.” Take in the sunset in the morning when you wake up or take a minute to appreciate being alive…it doesn’t have to take very long.
