Simple Ways to Practice Gratitude on the Daily

We're the Perfume with a Purpose, empowering you to believe in yourself and all you can do one spritz at a time! Today we want to empower you to bring more joy and less strife in your life through sharing three simple ways you can express gratitude on the daily.

1 - Daily Gratitude Practice

A great way to get the dopamine and serotonin hits that gratitude brings us (check out our last blog post for more details!) is by practicing gratitude on a daily basis. How to get started? How about this: when you wake up in the morning and just before you get out of bed, think of three things you are grateful for and say them to yourself, either out loud or in your head! Three things we were grateful for this morning? The sun shining, feeling well, and having beautiful perfume to scent our life with!

2 - Gratitude Jar

When grandma gives you a jar of her famous homemade cranberries this Thanksgiving, don't use it as a cocktail tumbler afterwards—use it as a gratitude jar! Cut up a piece of paper into strips and place them and a pen next to your cleaned jar. Every time you're grateful for something, write it down and stick it in the jar. Then on days when you get stuck in a negative thoughts or negative emotions, pull out one, or a few!, of those strips from your jar and watch how those negative vibes change to positive feelings!

3 - Gratitude List

A gratitude list is an easy way to practice gratitude. All you need is a piece of paper and a pen! Each day, take five minutes and write down as many things (small things or big things!) that you can think of that you are grateful for. This is a great practice for just before bed as it allows you to reflect on all the positive things that you experienced in your day, will help you relax, cultivate a positive mindset, and can even help get you some better sleep! To help get you started on your gratitude list, we've got a free gratitude journal digital download for you!

Through taking action with simple things like a daily practice of gratitude, a gratitude jar, or(and!) a gratitude list (while wearing your favorite Infinite Collection fragrance, of course!), you can reap the fabulous benefits of gratitude in your daily life!
