Kindness and Appreciation: One of the greatest gifts you can give another is to express appreciation for them. People love to feel valued, appreciated, and loved. So as you give thanks this holiday season, make sure to express appreciation to people in your life. Tell your friends and family one or two specific things you really love about them.
And bonus points for expressing appreciation to a stranger or someone you have tension with because it might just shift the relationship, your karma, and your level of joy.
GRATITUDE TIP: Create a Gratitude Box or Jar Write one thing you are grateful for every morning and/or every evening on a small piece of paper and put it in the container. Do this everyday for 30 days and then sit down, pour out all your small pieces of paper and begin to read through all of your
. Be prepared to smile, have your heart swell, and have it become a way of life. Potential side effect: You will likely want to repeat the process. 💛💫💛
Sleep more. As the days get shorter this autumn, have your life reflect the natural rhythms of the sun and go to bed earlier so you can sleep more as well as get up earlier and enjoy maximum day light during the shortest months of the year. Getting 7-8 hours of sleep is needed for the body and mind to do all the necessary flushing, detox, repair and restore. Getting even more sleep can be helpful during the fall and winter months to boost your immune system, reduce your risk of chronic disease, and improve your mental well-being.
Try it for a week and document the differences you notice. Once the evidence speaks for itself, the choice is up to you.
When you make sleep a priority, your body and mind will thank you and function more optimally so you can do all the things you love during waking hours. ✨😴🌛
