Set An Alarm To Take An Appreciation Break Today


It is day 5 of the Your Gratitude is Showing! challenge, powered by CeraVe.

Being grateful isn’t just for when you wake up or right before you sleep. It’s an all-day (or at least an interspersed-throughout-the day) activity.

Set a reminder today to remind yourself to pause, take a few moments, and make time for gratitude. Refer to day 2 of this challenge for a 3-step appreciation exercise or share a moment of appreciation and how it made you feel with someone today. Text a friend and ask them to do it with you.

Have more time to spare? Try to do it twice during your work or school day, then again at the end of your day. 

Don't think you'll have time today? Set a timer for later this weekend.

Remember: All it takes is 2 to 3 minutes of calm, mindful appreciation to turn a stressful or tiring day around. Not only can pausing to practice gratitude lower stress and anxiety, it sets the stage for the motivation you need to live a healthier, happier lifestyle.

Share your moments of gratitude and appreciation with us. Tell us about them here or better yet show us! Post a photo in our private Facebook group, on Twitter or Instagram and remember to tag us with #healthynurse and #yourgratitudeisshowing.

My job is something that I am grateful and the appreciation that my patients give me.
