Be grateful. Tonight (after your day of doing all that you do), choose to express gratitude by focusing on the positive, inspirational things that happened to you (or even moments that happened to others and how good it made you feel).
Take a moment to reflect on the beauty, love, joy, happiness, and growth you witnessed and experienced – big and small – in nature and/or with people (including yourself). Journal about them. It’s as simple as, “Today I am grateful for…” and listing each one. It doesn’t have to be a large list. In fact, just journal until you feel you’re ready to stop. Make it a daily, intentional practice, and observe how this exercise in mindfulness shifts your perspective and transforms your life!
Tip: Select a journal/notebook that you love and use it specifically for gratitude journaling. And you can reference it as a reminder of how abundantly and consistently awesome your life really is and to keep yourself centered on the importance of being in the moment.
Be self-love in action.
Do you already have a gratitude journal? If so, how has it shifted your perspective on life? How often do you express your gratitude?

I use my gratitude journal every day. Everyone should try it.
