Cultivate an attitude of gratitude

and change your life in just 2 minutes a day? Sounds like snake oil! But wait! Before you go – what if it were true? What if, in just 2 minutes a day you could feel happier, lower your stress levels and the stress levels in those around you? Sounds like a great investment to me!

Happiness researcher Shawn Achor has proven that expressing gratitude for just 2 minutes a days showed:

  • 37% rise in productivity
  • 37% rise in sales
  • 40% higher likelihood of a promotion

Achor also shares that when we express gratitude, our brains naturally release dopamine and serotonin (the happy hormones) without any unwanted side effects.

I’ve had a morning gratitude practice for years. Before my feet even hit the floor in the morning, I express 3 or more things I am grateful for.  It didn’t happen overnight – I had to continuously practice over and over again for it to become a habit.

We have all heard that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. I want to help you create that healthy habit, so I’ve come up with a 21-day Gratitude Challenge starting this Saturday, November 9th through Saturday, November 30th.

I’ve created a Facebook group for us to connect daily, sharing gratitude and building up that healthy new habit. Each day I will be sharing tips and quotes and resources to help you create that new attitude of gratitude, and hopefully, you will share as well!

Create an attitude of gratitude and WIN!

To give you an incentive to join and participate, I have a very special gift for 6 participants. Not only is Thanksgiving this month, it’s also my birthday – and this is a very special one – I turn 60! To celebrate, I am randomly giving away 6 private healing/coaching sessions (value $350)- one for each precious decade I’ve been alive.

To be eligible to win, you simply need to join the Facebook group and participate. It is not a question of who participates the most – everyone who participates even once has the opportunity to win a gift session.

I am grateful for YOU!

    People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
