Here's a video I made for my yoga followers just a little while back. I share how anyone can easily cultivate an inner sense of gratitude, peace, calm, certainty and serenity easily in just 3 to 5 mins.
Once you're done with this video and post, you will also gain immense benefit from getting your hands on my “3 Part Gratitude Series”.
I just watched the video below and it made my day! It reminded me once again of what I must consistently practice too..
It's a video that shows you all the wonderful and amazing things that you can be grateful for but are often taken for granted.

It made me ask myself, “How would the quality of each day I experience improve if I just spend 5 mins remembering all the things I am grateful in my life?”
Gratitude is one of the most powerful positive emotions we can experience, and one of the most wonderful gifts we can give ourselves.
Research has shown that gratitude brings more happiness, fulfillment, wonder, and joy into our lives. The best part about gratitude, I think, is that you can intentionally practice it. Each morning, in your Hour of Power, get grateful!
Especially with the hustle and bustle of daily life, going after our goals, achieving this and that, and making sure we are meeting all the demands placed on us, it's easy to forget to intentionally be grateful, isn't it?
We are so busy achieving that we don't remember and don't notice all the wonderful things that make up life and nature.
We are so caught up in life and our stories that we forget to feel gratitude for that amazing heart we have that pumps on average, 86,400 times each day to keep us alive!
Yes, most of us (and I'll admit, even I) take that for granted.
And what about all the other organs of your body to function perfectly without you even placing a single thought on it every day?
We have so much to be grateful for and yet we struggle to remember…
What Could The Daily Practice Of Gratitude Do For You?
Can you imagine how your life would improve and how much better you would feel if you just asked yourself each day, for just 5 mins, “What do you have to celebrate and be grateful for?”
How great would you end up feeling by the end of that 5 mins?
No matter how your day has been, by the end of that easy 5 mins of asking yourself that question, would you at least be smiling?
What would it be worth to you to end each day, before you close your eyes to sleep, with a smile that comes from gratitude?
How can you imagine that benefiting you in so many ways?
Set a reminder for yourself to really get grateful again for all that you have, all that you are, all that you have experienced and all the people you have in you life.
Even if you don't do it every day during your daily hour of power or at night before you sleep, please give yourself the gift and do it now – remember all that you are grateful for right now!
