3 Gratitude Exercises Guaranteed To Make You Feel Happy [Today’s Lifestyle Prescription®]

Gratitude is one of the most powerful emotions and state of mind.

Research has shown that the habit of practicing gratitude will reduce anxiety, depression, stress and increase happiness, sleep, relationships and health.

And what’s really amazing is that everyone can practice gratitude (it’s free) and it does not take much time.

“Do not dream of possession of what you do not have: rather reflect on the greatest blessings in what you do have, and on their account remind yourself how much they would have been missed if they were not there.”
Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius

3 Gratitude Exercises For Happiness

1) Morning Gratitude Ritual
When you wake up or when you drink your herbal tea (green tea or even coffee) contemplate for a few minutes and appreciate 3 things in your life you’re grateful about. Feel it in your heart and radiate that gratefulness out into the universe. Remember, what you focus on will increase and expand (attracting more things you can be grateful about).

2) The 3 Things You Take For Granted
Ask yourself: What is good in my life? What relationships, successes, behaviors or situations do I really enjoy and would not want to be without? What do I take for granted but don’t appreciate enough? Increase your awareness about what’s good in your life and anchor that gratitude in every cell of your body.

3) Write A Gratitude Journal
Writing down what you’re really grateful about is a powerful way to anchor that state of mind into your beingness. Researcher Robert Emmons confirmed with his research that after ten weeks participants in the gratitude condition felt better about their lives as a whole and were more optimistic. Participants were over 25% happier, spent more time exercising and reported fewer health complaints than those in the control group.

Practicing gratitude works!

But like all Lifestyle Prescriptions® you have to practice and establish a “gratitude habit” in your life. Just reading this article or thinking about it won’t do.

I wanted to share one of our students success stories with you because it shows what’s possible when you’re prepared to be visible.

Lena Olsten from Sweden is a Thermobuzzer owner and one of our Lifestyle Prescriptions® students, she recently stepped out of her comfort zone and took a booth at a Health Fair in Stockholm.

Lena shared her experiences with us:

“I just had the ThermoBuzzer for 2.5 months but I stepped out of my comfort zone and with the help from Johannes, Emma and Cody, I took the step to attend the fair, called Harmoni Expo.

I offered a free ThermoBuzzer facial scan and a consultation in total 15 minutes. I was fully booked both days and had to say no to many who were interested.

The interest for ThermoBuzzer was enormous. In total during the fairs 2 days, me and my colleague met hundreds of people and I took ThermoBuzzer images of 65 people or more, whom I now can send offers and newsletter to.

The fair gave me confidence and such big learnings that I can take with me into being Health Coach. I urge you all to go out and showcase Your knowledge. You are AMAZING.”

Lena is so passionate about her work and deserves to succeed, but what made the difference was that she was willing to step out of her comfort zone and be visible, something we can all learn from.
