I saw a Facebook post about this a few weeks ago and thought because it was such a brilliant idea, that I'd pass it on to you.
Click on the video below to see me walk you through step-by-step for creating your own Gratitude Jar.
Here are the ingredients to create your own Gratitude Jar:
- A Jar
- A Pen
Once you have all these in place, the idea is to write down one thing that you're grateful for on to a piece of paper and then put the paper in the jar. I encourage you to do this at least once a day (and you can do more if you want!).
The cool thing is that you can start this anytime (like today) and read them after you've built up a bunch of notes. After a week or two, or a month, or even a year, then you take the time to empty the jar and remind yourself of all the great things that are in your life. Some people read them at the end of a month, during Thanksgiving or the holidays. Plus, you can share this activity with the special someone(s) in your life.
The Gratitude Jar is a spiritual practice that invites you to celebrate and appreciate the people and experiences in your life right now. Gratitude opens you to a greater sense of ease, expansion and joy because you become more aware of the blessings in your life.
I'd love to hear what you think about this spiritual practice. Leave a comment and tell me your thoughts. With Gratitude, Joselito
