When you’re practicing being mindful of the present moment, you’re not caught up in your anxious merry go round of thoughts. You are seeing and noticing things that you have probably taken for granted.
When you’re paying attention to your creative work or playing that game you love, you’re truly in the moment without a care in the world. Life is great when we use our senses. It most definitely brings us a peace of mind.
There are lots of things out there to be truly thankful for. We just have to see and notice them instead of spending time in our past or future.

A mindful walk
The next time you’re out walking, make a point of smelling the scent of those beautiful flowers. Look for the life buzzing around you, and listen to the birds singing loudly. Pay attention and focus on all of the sounds and sights of nature, and how they make you feel. For example, enjoy feeling the nice cool breeze upon your face in the hot sun.
Having mindful walks and using your senses will reconnect you with Mother Earth, allowing you to feel safe and secure. It will help you with grounding your negative energy and you will begin to feel at one with the Universe. It will also give you an idea of what we should be thankful for on a daily basis.
Adding gratitude into the equation will help you to discover your self-worth and purpose for being here and more importantly, building self-love.
Practicing gratitude on a daily basis will raise your vibration and you will feel a lot happier. When you feel a lot happier and at one with yourself, you will attract more of the things in life that make you feel good.

Practicing Gratitude Journal
Buy yourself a lovely journal and write daily everything that you’re grateful for in the last 24 hours. Also include yourself in this, i.e. what are you going to pat yourself on the back for doing well that made you feel great?
By doing this, you are connecting with your soul. You are getting to know who you truly are and you will begin realising your trust potential. Furthermore, you will be reconnecting with the universe and understanding the beauty of life that is yours to enjoy.
What is that you’re grateful for?
Below are some questions that you can begin contemplating to help get you started.
Whatever you’re grateful for in life and for what you have achieved, you must write down how it makes you FEEL.
I really can’t emphasise enough how important it is that you begin writing about your feelings. Finally, writing in your journal and putting pen to paper builds positive energy.
Give it a go and let me know how you get on.
