On World Gratitude Day, know the 7 ways you can help yourself by becoming more grateful
Do you find yourself stuck in the same place you were in years ago? Do you find yourself comparing your life with random people on social media or comparing your salary with your friends and feeling dejected? Well, do not worry. This is basically all of us. But we want to get rid of this negative feeling. So what is the best way to avoid these thoughts?
To escape from the torrent of negative emotions you have to feel more grateful towards the life you have. And here are some ways in which you can be more grateful on the World Gratitude Day.
- Be content with your life
Understand that nothing in the world in permanent. Everyone goes through their highs and lows regularly. So you must never feel negative about your life. There may be a lot of things you wanted to have but things may not have worked out the same way. Do not be worried about it but be content with your life.
- People must be dying to be in your position
Just like the grass is greener on the other side, the lives of others appear better to us than our own. This means there would be a lot of people who would be dying to have a life like yours. Be grateful for everything that you have. Understand that the life of yours that you are criticising would be a life many truly unfortunate ones would give hand for.
- If you are not happy in the present, you won’t be happy in the future
We dream about the perfect life with perfect home, perfect job, perfect vacation, and what not. But we need to understand that if we are not happy with what we have then nothing would make us happy later in our life even if we are working hard on it.
- Count the blessings every day
Yes, you are more blessed than you could think of. So, every night and every morning, count the blessings in your life. At least count three to five blessings that you are grateful to the God for. I am sure this would turn you into a grateful person than before, and you would start loving your life.
- Find good in every situation
I understand that it is easy to say but tough to develop the habit. But once you start being positive and start trusting the positive energies around you, it becomes easier. Yes, definitely this does not cure the situation but it helps you tackling anxiety issues.
- Don’t stress over a situation; work to make it better
And by doing this, you will be the most grateful person ever. We stress about a lot of situations in our life. But instead of wasting our time in taking the stress, the best thing could be to work on those situations and make them better.
- Get motivated and not jealous because of other people’s success
In this social media generation, we often get upset when we see other people enjoying their vacations when we struggle with our monthly expenses. This feeling cribs us for sure. But you will go nowhere by comparing your life with others. Stop doing so and be inspired from the lives of those who have dedicated themselves in service of humanity.
Try to adopt these habits in your life and trust me, you will be a positive and grateful person. You can see the change in you, yourself. Above all, you will be the inspiration for others, too.
