1. Adopt the habit of grateful thinking by focusing your attention on all that you are grateful for each day. After 21 days, as scientists say, you will have created a habit. You can start with some simple morning practices.
2. Write a handwritten letter of thanks for a person’s help, love, friendship and/or support is one of the easiest and potentially most impactful ways to express your gratitude.
3. Make a gratitude list. Get comfortable, find a quiet place, and write down ten things that you are thankful for in life. Read your gratitude list often to remind you of all the good in your life.
4 Share what is on your gratitude list with your friends and family on social media and ask them to share what they are grateful for in life.
5. Do something unexpected for someone. What a feeling it is to have someone bring home flowers unexpectedly, or give you a big hug out of nowhere. Surprise someone for no reason and brighten his or her day!
