Growing up in an image-driven world of social media has put pressure on how we feel we are supposed to look and act. It’s easy to feel like we need to constantly try to be better to keep up.
Each day, we set out to accomplish numerous tasks focused on what we have to do and what we haven’t gotten done yet. For many of us, we have a constant need to check items off our to-do list, whether big or small. This need can lead to increased levels of anxiety and can put an intense strain on our overall mental and physical wellbeing.
Do you have a goal that feels unattainable? Maybe you want to lose weight, train for a half marathon, learn to play an instrument, or begin meditating. Maybe you don’t feel like you have the time to dedicate or you just don’t know how to get started.
One of the main skills to hone when learning to practice gratitude is being able to appreciate the little things and not take anything for granted. It’s a very simple thing to do, yet something that is so easy to overlook. When mastered, you’ll feel as though life is magical – you’ll be amazed at how blessed you are every day and how much you rely on the little things.
