There is a two minute habit that many of the world’s happiest and most successful people practice on a daily basis: keeping a gratitude journal. It is a simple, yet profound practice. All that is needed is to reflect on each day and jot down 2-3 things that you are grateful for. They can be as small as a well made matcha latte or as big as your physical health and safety… what matters is that these are current things in your life that you can bring to your attention.
There is a saying, “where the mind goes, energy flows.” When we focus our minds on the things that we already have, and feel a sense of gratitude for these, we begin to live with a sense of abundance. Some people feel and experience the mystical phenomenon that spending time in the grateful, abundant mindset attracts even more success and happiness. One patient of mine is an overachiever, faithfully writing fifty gratitudes in a journal each night! She credits this practice for the booming success of her business.
