Imagine what it would feel like to walk barefoot on these warm wooden planks. The earthy colors greeting your eyes creating an awareness of inner balance. From above the crystal blue sky shines brightly down on you. A warm tropical breeze brushes your skin like a feathery touch.
Your eyes drift down to the zen candles. You take a deep breath from within. Your senses are treated with warm sweet vanilla. The trickling water drops from the bamboo faucet lull you into a tranquil state. Lotus flower floating in the water leaving a trail of sparkles diamonds in its wake.
All is well. You are relaxed. You are safe in this place to meditate.
It’s hard to always sit down and write out all the things you are grateful for. There is always something to do much more important. So I decided to come up with this Gratitude Activity.
Take the day of the week and use that day to come up with what you are grateful for. It can just be words or full sentences. It is all up to you!
For example Saturday
Smiles from my kids
Taking a walk with my dogs
Under Armour fleece pants
Reading my page a day calendar
Dogs that have been and are currently in my life
Art that I create daily
Yams with corn and feta cheese
This is a fun challenge that you can do every day or as much as you can. At the end of the day, good or bad, remind yourself of the things, people, activities that you are grateful for. It will only help.
