Count Your Blessings — Literally!
Welcome to day 1 of the Your Gratitude is Showing! challenge, powered by CeraVe.
With the current pandemic, we all have experienced loss, sadness, fear, and/or anxiety. But try thinking about the positive that has come out of this stressful time. For example, have you had more time with a loved one? Have you learned new recipes? Or felt appreciation for an unexpected compliment, or a random act of kindness?
Despite what you might think, we all have so much to be thankful for. Whether it’s your health, your job, your family, your friends, or even the warm bed you slept in last night — there’s more to appreciate than we often realize.
Start your day on a positive note with intentional gratitude. Grab a pen and paper (or make a note in your phone) and jot down at least 3 items you’re grateful for. Before you go to sleep later, read your note aloud to remember some of the things that make you appreciative and happy.
If you’re up for it, turn this activity into a habit. Continue doing this each morning to spread the positive feeling of gratefulness further. Try not to repeat any items on your list.
