Being grateful is a quality that is not only mentally satisfying but can have a strong impact on your emotional and social wellbeing. Take out that journal and start thanking not only other people but experiences and environments as well.
Feelings come and go like the clouds and wind; meditation allows you to be an observer to your feelings without engaging in their conflict. Take a few minutes out of your day to be a spectator to every special experience you have had.
A lot of the time lifting another’s spirit has a huge impact on improving one’s own mood. Not only do you add value to another’s day, but they also create an atmosphere of warmth and positivity that can help you heal your own wounds.
