Ways to Cultivate Gratitude

Thank You note2 TSP 167171910

  1. Make a gratitude list. Write down 7–10 things on the list each day. Download a Gratitude app to your mobile device or purchase a blank book specifically for keeping your gratitude list.
  2. Say a grace before each meal. Also say a grace before you engage in a new activity.
  3. Each time you pick up the phone, receive or send a text, or look at an email or letter, give thanks for that person.
  4. If you are struggling with fear, sadness, or hopelessness, stop what you are doing and jot down a list of 5 things for which you are grateful.
  5. Say a prayer of thanks at the end of the day.
