Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff is a great antidote for stress.
This simple strategy, which may take only a few seconds to complete has long been one of the most important habits I have ever engaged in. I try to remember to start my day thinking of someone to thank. To me, gratitude and inner peace go hand in hand. The more genuinely grateful I feel for the gift of my life, the more peaceful I feel. Gratitude, then, is worthy of a little practice.
I learned a long time ago that it’s easy to allow my mind to slip into various forms of negativity. When I do, the first thing that leaves me is my sense of gratitude. I begin to take the people in my life for granted, and the love that I often feel is replaced with resentment and frustration. What this exercise reminds me to do is to focus on the good in my life. Invariably as I think of one person to feel gratitude for, the image of another person pops into my head, then another and another. Pretty soon I’m thinking of other things to be grateful for–my health, my children, my home, my career, the readers of my books, my freedom, and on and on it goes.”
Practice gratitude and see how your life soars and negativity subsides and you see abundance in every area of your life – career, health, and relationships. Having an attitude of gratitude magnitizes all the good of the universe to you!!
