I’m so grateful

When was the last time you sat down and thought about all the things you are grateful for? Not something we do much but why not get a gratitude journal going or even use a jam jar! In a busy world where we often focus on what we haven’t achieved or what we don’t have it is time to focus on what we do have. Why not start to look at all the positive things around you every day – I guarantee it will lift your mood. It might even show you where you need to put some more effort and focus. For example if you never mention things you do for yourself then why not start looking at what makes you happy. Maybe you need to start some exercise so that you feel motivated and energetic to do the things that you really want to do but you’ve just lost your mojo to do. My challenge to you is to get a book and each day write 3-5 things that you are grateful for or that make you happy. Personally I use a jar and scribble down on a piece of paper something that made me smile or feel happy whether it is..

  • The great song that came on the radio whilst I was driving that took me back to my teenage years and all the fond memories
  • Being able to do one more press up this week than I could do 2 weeks ago
  • Enjoying a great meal in a new restaurant
  • Seeing my parents laugh and have fun
  • Watching a beautiful summer sunset
  • The car park space when I was pushed for time
  • Seeing the happiness in my clients faces when they lose weight and feel fitter and more alive
  • Getting my nails done with a lovely new colour
  • A clean car
  • Helping someone lost in the city find where they are going
  • A colourful bunch of flowers someone gave me as a gift
  • Feeling fit and strong walking up the stairs in the car park whilst everyone else waited to take the lift

I could go on forever but I think you get the idea so go write something down 🙂 Zita ps If you live in or near Bath and would like to sign up for a taster week at our outdoor group exercise classes check out Zest Bootcamp here
