An attitude of gratitude is what helps attract more into our lives that we can be grateful for. Here are a few suggestions on how to begin a gratitude practice at home TODAY
❤️ Light a gratitude candle 🕯 each morning at breakfast, during dinner or as part of the bedtime routine and have every family member say something (or a few things!) they are grateful for.
🧡 Have everyone in the family write (or draw, for the little ones!) something they are grateful for on a slip of paper 📝 and place it in a jar. Do this every day and at the end of the week sit as a family and read through them all together.
💚 Pick a wall in the house 🏠 to create a gratitude tree. 🌳 Cut the trunk and branches out of brown construction paper and tape to the wall. Every day each family member draws or writes what they are grateful for that day on a cut out leaf 🍃 or flower 🌸 that you tape to the branches.
Yes, there is a lot of confusion, sadness, fear, and loss right now. But there is also a lot to be grateful for. Here are the things I am grateful for in this moment:
🔅Extra time spent with my family in nature
🔅A more relaxed morning instead of a rushed routine
🔅More freedom during the day to do what we want
🔅Lots of time for baking! 🍰 🧁 🍪 🧑🍳
🔅Good books 📚 📖 🤓
