I have written about hope, inspiration and mindset previously and I hope that you have enjoyed them. But something else that I think helps with our mental health and well being is being grateful not just for the big things in life but also the small things in life. The reason I believe this is because I have found myself that when I concentrate on what I am grateful for, the negative things in my life seem not so bad after all.
So, I thought I would share with you my list of things I am grateful.
Having a roof over my head
Having food on my table
Being able to put clothes on my daughters back
Doing cross stitch
Living near beautiful walks
As you can see this list isn't actually enormous but whenever I am feeling down or over whelmed it helps remind me that things aren't as bad as I think. This post isn't long by an stretch of the imagination but I hope this will help demonstrate what a gratitude list can look like.
If you are feeling low or overwhelmed then try making yourself your own gratitude list. I hope it will help you feel more positive and help you mental health.
