We’re more than halfway through Grateful in April – are you getting good at being grateful? 

Practice makes perfect, so here’s a couple of tips to get a little gratitude in every day. 

Take a moment to create a ritual or a regular time where you consciously think about something you are grateful for. 

Many people like to use dinner time to say out loud what they are grateful for and it can be a great opportunity to involve kids, family or friends. 

We all benefit from hearing about what other people are grateful for too, so you get a double dose if you share. 

How about when you are brushing your teeth? Are you currently looking in the mirror and expressing gratitude for the person smiling back at you? You should be! Look how amazing that person is (yep, that’s you!). 

So increase your hours of expressing gratitude – the benefits will far outweigh the outlay! 

We just love hearing about people sharing their Grateful in April journey with family, friends, workmates and even strangers as well as spreading gratitude on social media and expressing their care for others through emails and calls. 

Making good thoughts, actions and words a habit brings a sense of happiness, calm and contentment to your life. 

Just try it. You’ll totally be grateful you did.
