Gratitude and Mindfulness - WAG Day 4

November 16, 2016

 

Have you ever noticed how expressing Gratitude connects you with the present moment? According to University of California Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center, "mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. " Mindfulness has been shown to help deal with pain and depression and promote focus and well-being.  Gratitude connects you to what your are experiencing both externally and internally at any given moment.  A practice to help you develop mindfulness and gratitude is meditation.    Give it a try! 

 

Today's Gratitude challenge is to START AND END YOUR DAY WITH A GRATITUDE MEDITATION.

 

If you already meditate, try repeating your Gratitude mantra during your practice today. Here are a few links to guided Gratitude meditations that you may find helpful.
