This week, we’re doing one of my favorite challenges. We love it because it puts everything into perspective … and we think you’ll love it for that reason, too.
It’s the 5X GRATITUDE CHALLENGE!
Each night before bed – or each morning when you wake up – take a few minutes and write down 5 things you’re grateful for.
It doesn’t have to be a fancy or “profound” list. Just the simple act of thinking about the people, events, and things that you appreciate in your life can be a very powerful exercise.
Love your Egyptian cotton sheets because they make you feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud? Write that down. Love the way your dog looks at you when he gets up from a nap? Journal it! Had a great conversation with a family member today? You know the drill….
Gratitude brings a LOT of benefits into your life, including improved mental and physical health, self-esteem, better sleep, and mental strength.
You can learn more about that on this link, which outlines proven benefits of gratitude:
