How to show gratitude before sleeping.

View Transcript
- Welcome to this gratitude exercise. First and foremost, shout out to you for taking a step and improving your spiritual wellbeing. I know it can feel a bit funky to talk about this stuff at times. I felt that way too at first. I still do at times, to be completely honest, but I would urge you to lean into and embrace any connection you feel with whatever higher power vibes with you. Whether that's God, the universe, the earth, the stars, whatever works for you, lean into that. To me, gratitude is all about making time to reflect in the most important parts of your life. That may be the people in your life, the things you do or the tasks you accomplish during the day. You can go as deep as reflecting on a chance encounter with an old coworker that led to a new job or as simple as rejoicing because you made the train before the doors closed. Now, there's a lot of different ways to practice gratitude. I personally like to do it right before bed so I'll walk you through those steps. To get started, get completely ready for bed. You know, cozy clothes, a glass of water, whatever you need. If you have a candle, light that too. Creating a really cozy, comfy environment always helps me relax and maybe it'll help you as well. You'll want your room to be nice and quiet. No screens. Watch this first, of course, and then you can put your phone away. Now, for the fun part, the questions that will lead your gratitude practice. What about this week was better than last week? Who or what made you smile today? What did you do today that you're proud of? And who has gone out of their way to make your life better recently? I like to answer these questions out loud, but you could easily answer them in your head or if you like to journal, you can write them out. The nice part about doing this right before bed is it really allows you to unwind and get some of the things from the day off your mind. There are so many different ways to practice gratitude but at the very least, I would recommend doing it on a consistent basis. That might be every night, once a week, but having some structure is important. Not only is it great for habit building but having these special moments with yourself over time will hopefully, help to strengthen your spiritual connection as well. One last thing. While this is focused on the positive aspects of your life, this isn't to say that there aren't gonna be hard days or difficult situations. This is not a toxic positivity exercise. This is just to shine some light on the things you're grateful for so you can seek out more of that if you so choose. Best of luck. Enjoy the practice, and thank you for watching.
