We’ve been talking about gratitude a lot lately here on Anxiety Gone because studies have shown it to be a powerful coping method and management tool for anxiety. However, since gratitude isn’t just about being grateful; it’s feeling and living with appreciation for even the smallest things in life, one of the easiest ways to harness the benefits of gratitude is to ask yourself daily gratitude questions.
GRATITUDE IS ABOUT BRINGING YOUR ATTENTION TO THE POSITIVE; TO LIVE A HAPPIER AND HEALTHIER LIFE – MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY.
To help you start training your brain to focus on the good found in every day, all you have to do is start asking yourself daily gratitude questions. We prefer to do this gratitude activity at night so we can reflect on the entire day and prepare a positive and grateful mindset for the next day.
The key is to find an answer to each one of the daily gratitude questions because there always is an answer. Having a mental illness can make it difficult to come across what inspires you or what challenges you overcame which is precisely why these daily gratitude questions as so important.
We have a complete list of the benefits of practicing gratitude for anxiety in another blog post but here is a breakdown of what you can expect to happen when you start asking yourself daily gratitude questions.
With regular practice, you’ll be able to rewire your brain and start seeing the positive with next to no effort. But it starts with practice. So, schedule in 15 minutes each night to go over these daily gratitude questions and let the healing begin.
