There are ways we can exercise it and make it stronger. Simply put, gratitude is a tankful appreciation for water Person receives with a tangible or abstract in her book Living and Gratitude. A Journey That Will Change Your Life, Angeles Aaron, right Gratitude is essentially the recognition off the unknown increments off value in one's experience. She, for the continues gratitude, is a feeling that spontaneously emerges from within. However, it is not simply an emotional response. It is also a choice we make. We can choose to be grateful, or we can choose to be ungrateful to take our gifts and blessings for granted as a choice. Gratitude is an attitude or disposition. Just a simple thought of thankfulness can significantly impact our health. It has been reported that penmanship from a feeling off stress gratitude There's also a shift in our nervous system.

But if we choose, we can get the ball rolling by taking some simple actions or the next three days. I discuss the three ways to strengthen your gratitude muscle on to ensure that you not only learned them but implement the ideas and insights that I share with you. I'm kicking off a 72 hour challenge for you. Each day I'll share Tibbett you followed by a simple action that you'll have to perform during the course off your day later. At the end of the day, you spend a few moments reviewing and writing down any lessons learnt or any eureka moments that you experience in your strength and your gratitude. Muscle book sheets. Let's work together to strengthen our gratitude muscles. I see you bright and early tomorrow 2. Day 1 | Let Go of the Comparison Trap: Tudo Roosevelt once said, Comparison is Atif of Joy on. It's absolutely true. Comparing our work, our life, the activities, every participating on anything else with others never serves us well. It's best to mind our own business. We can put the blinders on so that we don't pay attention to what others are doing on Simply focus on our game on Arlene. If you want to live life on our own terms, then we need to let go off comparisons in her book Love Your Life, Not Dares. Rachel Cruz writes about her personal battle with comparisons. I had to come to terms with the fact that I was caught up in comparisons. I was choosing someone else's life instead of enjoying my own. I was letting someone I had never met influence not only how I was going to spend my money , but how I was going to live my life as a Muna. Maniacally focus on things that matter most. Waas will feel happier, more peaceful on get in touch with the tranquility within. Here's an example from a book the way off the Karma Yogi, that alliance will with this notion, the comparison game conjures up a cocktail off low self esteem, insecurity and anxiety within us that, if not kept in check, might take us towards severe depression. The unfavourable comparisons that we impose on ourselves at us blind sports that drift us away from recognizing our own uniqueness on our talents. They make our lives, talks it on difficult instead of talking others and the highlight reels off their lives. We need toe unplug from the noise we need to bring focus back to our lives on loan ways to develop parcels instead of engulfing ourselves with obsession, incessant comparison and served appreciation, we can work towards figuring out our strengths on maximizing them. When we focus on being who we are, we attract the right people and circumstances in our lives. On we increase our gratitude and contentment. So here's something that may help you take charge off your emotions on Get rid off this comparison trap. Say no to social media today you can do the same with news magazines or anything that you find disturbing on distracting 3. Day 2 | Stay Focused on the Present: it's easier for all of us to try to live in another time and place some limit about the past mistakes, how they could have done things differently on what they might have become. But a past won't come back. No matter how much we think about the past, it won't change a thing on when it comes to our future. It's uncertain and unpredictable. We don't know what's in store for us, and it's hard to estimate the ratio off good or bad, happiness or suffering, good luck or luck that we would experience the future is vast and has infinite possibilities. That's why it's best not to dwell on our past or future for too long. Otherwise, it may steal our joy on paralyze us from taking action in the present. A cynical road in more letters. Let us therefore set out wholeheartedly. Leaving aside are many distractions and exert ourselves in the single purpose before we realise too late. The swift on unstoppable flight of time on our left behind as each day arises. Welcome it as the very best day off all on. Make it your own possession. We must seize What? Please. Ah, big portion off Our present is wide open for us to enjoy and celebrate life on take part and in dense and exciting experiences Let go off the baggage of the past on the worries off the future on focus on all the blessings on falling before you before you right now Walk towards being your very best on fully living All the hours off your precious existence today garbage you. 4. Day 3 | Go in the Slow Lane: in this fast paced world. Today, everyone is running around in a rush to get things done so that they can check them off from the list on feel better about themselves. Furthermore, the current court and court multitasking culture is training people to become shallow on ignore excellence on debt. As Stephen Personal points out, the disease off our times is that we live on the Sophie's were like the Platte River, off mild white on an inch deep. We need to let go off superficiality on the constant rush on. Instead, slow down on Do Big Book studies have shown that single tasking is the best way to go. It not only helps us get more done in a given amount of time, but it also helps keep our brains properly wild and happy. It may seem counterintuitive, but in actuality, by slowing down on concentrating on one thing at a time, we become more efficient and productive. As Ryan hold their points out in his new book, Stillness is the Key. Slowing down is the secret weapon for those charging ahead. Our brains are designed to juggle multiple things at once attention to too many things can result in absent mindedness on When we forget to mind our minds, we make errors. In addition, there is a certain joy that we feel when we do things slowly and enjoy each and every moment. There is more focus and clarity on our perception on thinking is better, as Douglas Holden remark, drive slow and enjoy the scenery, drive fast and joined the scenery. Most of us prefer to race, but in the fast lane it becomes hard to integrate meaningful things or go deep. When we take the time to live in the slowly on reflect on the wonders off life on all the blessings we have, we get in touch with our inner tranquility on enrich ourselves with a deeper, more profound experience off contentment. So today go in the slowly take your sweet time on, enjoy the scenery off your life. 5. Conclusion: I hope the 72 hours Trenton your gratitude. Muscle challenge. I did create value to you. Whenever you feel that you need to exercise our gratitude muscle, come back to this challenge. Thank you for the time and attention that you invested and participating in the short adventure until next time. Always remember like life and like success, gratitude is a journey, not a destination.
