1. Make a gratitude journal for yourself
Maintaining a gratitude journal helps you to go through the previously written lines of gratitude and recently written lines, all at once. You can even give it a read during free time, and feel the positive vibes around you.
2. Write a line of appreciation every day
Appreciate what you have every single day without complaining or crying on what you don’t have or cannot have. However, it will hardly be etched if all these are in your mind only, and thus, it is crucial to write them on to a gratitude journal.
3. Make time to appreciate at least five people
Appreciating yourself and what you have is not enough, and thus you need to appreciate others too. Give or say a token of appreciation to at least five people you meet every day. In this way, you can make them happy, even in the situation of intense stress.
4. Look at the pictures of people who matters
Often in life, you tend to lose hope and feel like there is nothing to hold on anymore. At that point, looking up at the pictures of the people to whom you matter the most can give you the positivity boost.
5. Take out time and communicate
Communication is the key to everything, and it paves the path for you to talk about your feelings and intentions to the people who are near and dear to you. When you speak out about how you feel, your heart feels light, and everything becomes clear to you.
6. Appreciate smallest of the things
Life becomes beautiful when you can understand the smallest of things. So, instead of expecting the bigger things in life, be happy and appreciate every small thing you come across.
7. Practice self-love and self-care
Loving yourself is the greatest act of gratitude that one can practice for better mental health. Spend time with yourself and take care of yourself because when you love your own self, you develop the strength to love others too.
8. Be grateful for every help or favor
Whatever help or favor you receive from others, always be grateful for it. It will give them a positive vibe about you, and they will extend their hand to help you even in the future.
9. Write down ‘how you feel’ every day
After you’re done with everything of the day, write down how you feel every day. It will help you to know yourself better and keep a check on your mental health as well.
10. Do a thank-you prayer at bedtime
While going to bed, do a prayer and thank the universe and God for everything you have in life and express how grateful you are for everything that you’ve got.
