How gratitude lists help us navigate life

June 14th, 2020

A simple way to push the “reset” button in our brains is to do write a gratitude list every day. Think of 5 things you are grateful for and write them down. Each day try to think of new things you are grateful for and get specific. This will give you some calm and quiet time to reflect and enjoy some mindfulness. It also helps to replace negative thoughts and emotions. Become more aware of the important people in your life and the world in general. Your brain will start to recognize the benefits of gratitude as a habit so it will be more likely to keep it up. Self-care takes many forms and gratitude lists are an easy one that’s free to help stop and appreciate life and be good to yourself. Especially in the tough times, a sense of gratitude helps us learn what we needed to know and continue forward with a renewed sense of sense and our goals. At the Harrison we are very grateful for first responders. The work you do is incredible. Thank you for making a huge difference for all of us and those we love.
