Gratitude is the memory of the heart is an old French proverb by Jean-Baptiste Massieu. The practice of gratitude is a beautiful, timely, wise, and loving way with scientific evidence, to nourish and uplift your heart.
Besides, gratitude has been shown to increase our overall health and wellbeing: including getting more sleep.
Maybe even now is the best possible moment to practice gratitude. Most people know when and why they feel grateful. It comes with events that make us feel joyful and happy. But as life can be unpredictable, and feel scary, practicing gratitude can be hard or a challenge too. One of the biggest mistakes we can make is to think we should be grateful 100 percent of the time. That’s an impossible standard. We know gratitude is good for us, we know we should feel grateful, we know life would be better if we did, but sometimes the feeling is just not there and then we feel guilty about it.
In the solo episode you can hear why I relate the practice of gratitude to the practice of self-care and forgiving. You will also receive a few journaling prompts to start your adventure of gratefulness.
With love and gratitude, 🙏🏻
