Practicing Gratitude, This Sesaon & Always

The Author, Anya, and her family
  • Take a moment to slow down each day and name three things you’re grateful for.
  • Establish gratitude rituals: Set aside time each week/month to call a loved one. Even if they don’t answer, leave them a message sharing why you’re grateful for them. Express gratitude before family meals
  • Practice self-friendship. Be kind to yourself. Take a moment to hear the messages you’re sending yourself, and talk to yourself as though you were talking to your best friend
  • Practice gratitude by giving to causes that matter to you (I personally donate to National Bail Fund Network & Chicago Community Bond Fund.)
