  • Gratitude is one of the most important tools we can use to change our lives and those of others for the better. Some say its vibration is more powerful even than love. So, it’s therefore a critical practice for our daily prescription of stress-reduction. We all have something to feel grateful for, even in tough times! Don’t let everyday life and stress kill your appreciation towards what life has gifted you.

    Start a gratitude journal and write down every day at least 5 things you are thankful for and when you really feel in a low mood or overwhelmed, read it out loud. The practice of keeping a gratitude journal has been associated even to health benefits in heart failures patients (Redwine et at., 2017). Sharing them with a friend will provide additional benefits for both parties.

    I wrote this Meditation many years ago. I summarized what I felt fortunate for and I repeat to myself regularly – often at the beginning of meditation or before eating. Of course, I’d love you to use it to inspire gratefulness in yourself, but perhaps if you write your own and use that it will be even more powerful!

    I bet you can’t wait to start kick start your gratitude practice immediately!

    So here’s my Gratitude Meditation or you to enjoy wherever and whenever you need!

    Have a grateful day,
