Are you grateful enough for all the wonders in your life?
We could all do with some more gratitude in our lives.
In fact, studies have shown that gratitude can both help raise your mood and increase your compassion towards others.
This shows us that whether or not you believe “the law of attraction” (or similar theories), where gratitude is given importance on a more cosmic/spiritual scale, science shows us that gratitude has several positive influences on us if practiced regularly.
The following guided gratitude meditation (by Jason D Bowers) is a great way to start incorporating more gratitude into your life. It is also great for making meditation a part of your daily routine (if it isn’t already).
If features a deep /but soft) man’s voice, has clear instructions and also leaves room for silence. It features visualization techniques as well as positive encouragement to be more grateful for things in your life.
The meditation lasts 15 minute. Listen to if yourself, and see what you think.
