[Music intro]

This podcast is about entrepreneurship, spirituality, and self-care. My name is Lourdes, and I am the host of this show. Thank you for listening today!

Okay, so first, it’s important to understand that gratitude is a state of mind where we acknowledge the good things in our life, no matter how small they may seem. It’s about being thankful for what we have, rather than focusing on what we lack.

So, what is gratitude? Gratitude is a feeling of appreciation and thankfulness for the good things in our life. It can be for big things like having a big loving family, or small things like a warm cup of tea on a cold day. Practicing gratitude is about being mindful of the positive aspects of our lives, no matter how big or how small they are.

And did you know that research has shown that practicing gratitude can improve our mental and physical health? It boosts our happiness, reduces stress, and improves our relationships. Gratitude also helps us focus on what we have, instead of what we don’t have. And it can help us develop a more positive outlook in life.

And so here are some simple ways that we can start to appreciate things around us and start practicing gratitude. So, the first one is you probably want to start a gratitude journal. What you want to do is take a few minutes a day to write down three things that you’re grateful for. Just three! Some people write ten things a day. I started with three, and it became five, and now it’s like twelve things a day!

And sometimes people get stuck on what they’re grateful for, especially when they’re starting. So a simple thank you for just waking up today. You oughta be grateful for having another day to live. How about having a good conversation with a friend, or enjoying a beautiful sunset? Having shelter, or a roof over your head? And having to do this simple exercise can help you focus on the positive things in your life. And it involves writing down the three things you are grateful for each day, and you can change your mind to focus on the positives in your life rather than the negatives.

And did you know another simple way to practice gratitude is just to say thank you? Make a conscious effort to say “thank you” for their kindness and support. It can be thanking the cashier at the grocery store, or you can thank a co-worker for their help with a project.

Another way is to focus on the present moment. Pay attention to the present moment, and be grateful for what you have right now. Don’t get caught up in worrying about the future, or even dwelling on the past. When your mind starts to wander in those areas, quickly turn it around and just focus on the now, and smile! Start thinking about the things that you have right now, like this moment. Like you’re sitting down, like you’re enjoying a moment to yourself. Look around you and just appreciate the beauty that is surrounding you right now.

And finally, you want to practice mindfulness. So take a few minutes each day to practice mindfulness. What you want to do is focus on your breath. Observe your thoughts and feelings, and be present in this moment. We often get caught up in the business of life and forget to take a step back and appreciate the beauty around us. This can help cultivate a sense of gratitude and appreciation for your life.

And so, as I end this podcast, practicing gratitude can bring so much positivity in our lives. By focusing on the good in our life, we can improve our mental and physical health, and cultivate more meaningful relationships. So take a moment today to reflect on the things that you are grateful for, and see how it impacts your life.

I hope you continue to tune in next time for more on personal growth, spiritual living, entrepreneurship, and business development!
