How many times have you found yourself wishing for something other than what you already have? It’s easy to have a “the grass is always greener on the other side” mentally but it doesn’t lead to a happy life. Instead, try to be grateful for what you already have to help create a positive energy. By focusing on the good and appreciating the people and things in your life, you can help to improve your overall health and mentality.

Being grateful for the little things in life can also bring you closer to the people who surround you. You can even be grateful for the things that don’t necessarily turn out the way you had hoped by using the experience to gain perspective and grow as a person. Remember that everything happens for a reason. Your energy is better spent being grateful for the learning experience than wishful for a different outcome of something you can’t change.

In order to shift your energy from wanting more to being grateful, try writing five things that you’re grateful for every night in a journal. It doesn’t have to be five different things every day but just five things that you’re particularly grateful for on that particular day. You’ll start to realize that you likely have more to be grateful for than you originally thought.

We choose how we view the world and we can make it a better place by having an attitude of gratitude instead of a chip on our shoulder. Make your world a better place and be grateful for the life you have created.
