Express gratitude

Use a few minutes every day and think through the things you are thankful for. What do you have to be thankful for today, and what do you have in the bigger picture to be thankful for.

When you struggle with life, it might be difficult to think about the things you are thankful for. That’s why it will help you to use a few minutes every day to think through, and write down theese. When you make a list, and habitually goes through this list every day, you will always take yourself back to a “place of gratitude”.

When you make this list, and add new things constantly, you will over time realize how good life has been on you, and more good things will come to you.

This is probably one of the easiest things you can do to improve your life.

Good luck

This is how you establish a new habit

You may think that establishing a new habit is about willpower, but that’s only a small part of the truth.

A new habit is established through exercising, and what do you know about exercising?

I don’t know what you know about exercising, but I know that a person who has never ran before and decides he/she wants to run a Marathon, has to start with light running and increase carefully over time to reach the goal.

It may not be a running habit you want to establish, but the way to establish the habit is very similar.

Regardless of what kind of habit you want to establsih, you can follow this simple model:

  • Start with a small/easy habit, something you regard as easy and which takes little time, effort or planning (perhaps reading a newspaper)
    • Decide the trigger, it can be you have got up in the morning
    • Do the habit, sit down (with a cup of coffee maybe) and read the newspaper for 15 minutes.
    • Receive the reward (you being updated on the local news…..)

You get the picture. Decide trigger, do the habit, receive the reward. 3 simple steps.

Once you have done this with a small habit, and repeated it a few times with different habits, you’re ready to go for the larger ones.

It does not matter what kind of habit you want to create, the only thing that can be smart to do different, is to divide big habits into several smal habits.

Good luck
