- July Wellness: Practice daily gratitude
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and give thanks
continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include
all things in your gratitude.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
What are you grateful for today? Begin a daily morning and evening gratitude practice. Before opening your eyes
and getting out of bed in the morning, think of three things you are grateful for. Before closing your eyes and going
to sleep in the evening, think of three things you are grateful for. Many people also choose to keep a daily gratitude
journal. Incorporating a simple gratitude practice into your daily routine will positively impact your well-being and
other aspects of your life in ways you cannot begin to image.
