Down in the dumps? Can't seem to get off the couch? Want to make healthy changes in your life but can't find the energy? Well, knock it off Psybersquarian! Cure that case of self-pity and lack of motivation by creating
a Gratitude List.
We often take for granted many precious and wonderful aspects of our lives. A lack of gratitude can lead to self-destructive behavior such as envy, lethargy, sloth, lack of creativity, and reduced motivation. Not a pretty picture, huh? Make a gratitude list when you're experiencing any of these symptoms to nip that negative attitude in the bud. Remember all that you have to be thankful for and it will be much harder to get stuck in a rut.
To create your Gratitude List, check the box next to all the gifts that you feel grateful for, and when you finish, click on submit for a personalized gratitude list. Print your list out, and feel free to add more blessings of your own.
