Habits to Change Your Life – My Favourite Technique.
This week’s theme is ‘habits to change your life’ and so I want to share my favourite technique which has made a massive difference to my happiness levels.
It is something which the most successful people in the world do such as Oprah Winfrey and Tony Robbins. It is simple to do and extremely effective. It is GRATITUDE.
A few humbling facts:
Out of a worldwide population of around 7.4b
- 6 out of 10 people do not have a flushing toilet or access to clean running water.
- 16 percent of the world’s population have no electricity.
- 10 percent of the world’s population live on less than £1.45 a day.
Here’s another fact:
If you earn £20k a year and there are 2 of you living in your home, you are amongst the top 10.6% of the world’s richest population. Not only that you earn more than 11% of the global average.
This is pretty mind-blowing, isn’t it?
The point of this is to serve as a reminder that we are living abundantly even though we might not feel like it sometimes when we compare ourselves to others.
The power of gratitude allows us to be more content and happier. It really works.
The human mind is amazing and complex. The problem is that our thoughts can make us feel happy or miserable depending on the thoughts being processed at the time. The good news is that we can control those thoughts. In my Courage to Change Programme I teach you in depth how to do this, and here is the starting point:
My top technique is to find yourself a journal, a note book, and keep it by your bed. When you go to bed each evening, take a few minutes to write down:
- What you are grateful for.
- Who you are grateful for.
Write everything you are grateful for. Big things and small things. If you are having a bad day you might find it harder to find things, and when you are having a good day it is easier. With practice is becomes much easier to identify things to be grateful for. Some examples might be: your comfortable bed; your friends; your family; your pet/s; the food you have eaten today; the clothes in your wardrobe; your reliable car; the lovely weather; the person who smiled at you today at the bus stop;
Do this consistently. This is a powerful technique which has been proven to improve the quality of life and your contentment and happiness.
