The 3 Tactics to Thrive NOt Just Survive:
1. Positive Mindset – Peace & Gratitude
In turbulent times it is so important to center and cultivate an attitude of gratitude. Below is an exercise that can be written or completed aloud. The purpose of this is to feel it!
A National Institutes of Health study found that when you express kindness or feelgratitude, your hypothalamus floods yourbrainand releases dopamine and serotonin, the two crucial neurotransmitters responsible for our emotions, and they make us feel ‘good’. They enhance our mood immediately, making us feel happy from the inside.The more that we practice gratitude, the more connected we are to the timeless. The sacred. The profound. And the awe of being alive.
For just a moment, forget your responsibilities and tune into your heart. Deep breath in, Deep breath out. Without pausing to appreciate that which sustains your life, everything just becomes another item on your to-do list. And life is much, much more than adult obligations.
Doing these simple practices will increase the sense of gratitude you feel. And that feeling of appreciation helps you bring more love into your daily life and to the world. Love will change your perspective and change the world!
