Add As You Go
Another good method of building on a habit of gratitude is to add it to your existing daily routine. Whatever schedule you would normally follow in the morning, just be sure to include a few minutes to think of your blessings. For example, my morning routine consists of waking up at least 30 minutes before I have to wake my kid up, make a cup of tea, look through my to-do list, and review my journal entry from the night before. Between writing in my journal and reviewing it the next day, it takes maybe a total of 10 extra minutes out of my day. Now, if you continuously review your blessings at the same time each day, then once that time comes you’ll be inclined to remember the positive aspects of your day.

Create Visual Reminders
Now, in the case that you’ve forgotten or simply decided to skip a day, try to add some visual cues to your work area. Have you ever heard of a Vision Board to push you to manifest what you want for your business? This is the same concept. On a Vision Board, you would add PICTURES of your goals and place it around your desk as a constant reminder of what you are working towards. The more you look at it, the more you give yourself positive affirmations, the closer you’ll get to attaining your goals. The same can be said for giving yourself visual cues to go off of in building your new “counting your blessings” habit. Place post it notes with a couple of blessings written down on your computer so that it’s the first thing you see before you get to work. Try to stick notes on your night stand so it’s the last thing you see before going to sleep. For those of you who don’t like to write, technology comes in handy as well for reminders. You can set an alarm on your phone or tablet so that you won’t leave the house or go to sleep without taking time to revisit/ remember your blessings.

Now you can see how getting into the habit of realizing the good things in your life isn’t really that difficult. Just making a few small changes here and there, and you’ll find that it’s actually quite easy to implement this practice.
