Gratitude. It’s one of those words that gets thrown around more than a baseball on the first nice day of spring. But why?
It’s actually an extremely powerful tool that can be used to improve your relationships, your luck, and your mind.
When you use gratitude to improve your mind, your teaching your brain to find things that are wonderful and celebrate them. You actually program your subconscious mind to find more good, instead of focusing on the stress of the day or what you want to change.
One of the easiest ways to learn this, especially now when everything outside is beginning to bloom, is to go out in nature.
Take a walk around your neighborhood and take in the sights. Turn on your awareness to the beauty all around you. Notice the birds singing, the flowers popping up, the squirrels running around, the children playing.
Let the beauty of this world hit you, and celebrate it. Breathe it in. It’s awesome.
