It is always beautiful to find gratitude throughout the day. It helps your day run smoother and you know that our goal here at “Life Through Fancy Eyes” is to find ways to improve our daily way of living. We can not control some things or events that happen daily but we can control how we react to them.
Gratitude is a simple and inexpensive tool that can be use to help us with our reactions. You react differently when your mind is feel with grateful and thankful moments. This mug carries a powerful message, “Wake With Gratitude.” I know you may hear or read this a lot about the way we start our day has a lot to do with how the rest of our day goes. I guess a lot of people have figure it out and just want to share with others.
There is so much chaos going on in the world until we need messages fill with simple and inexpensive tools to help us get through. We need to be reminded that there are some things to be grateful for through it all. We need to be reminded that everything is not all bad. Because thinking of all the chaos can take a toll on the mind and body.
I can remember times when things were not going as I wish or hope and it was tiring me out mentally and physically. But every time that I took time out and thought of what I am grateful for I felt a load releasing from me. I felt better instantly. We have to remember how powerful our mind is and how much control we really have over the way we think.
There are so many different ways to practice gratitude. My favorite is journaling. It is just something about writing it down and seeing it on paper. I know thinking about it changes your mind frame but adding that writing step just help activate it more and give you more time to really soak it in.
After I woke up this morning, I began to thank God and think about some things that I am grateful for and write them down. I could feel my mind and body go into a relaxing and calming state. And within that moment, I knew I was ready to tackle the day and whatever comes with it.
How do you start your day? How do you arm yourself for the stressors that comes with everyday living?
