Ending the Day with Gratitude

Be mindful of the events that happen in your life. To keep the important experiences which make you happy well remembered, end the day with gratitude.

Ending the Day with Gratitude

This end-of-day gratitude meditation is an invitation to witness and then release all thoughts connected to the day as you prepare for deeper rest and relaxation. By ending the day in this way, we become more appreciative of whatever our experience was, whether happy or sad, and find a greater sense of peace within this present moment.

Broadening Our Understanding of Gratitude

When we practice gratitude, we shift our thinking from negative to positive; however, rather than suppressing the challenges we may have encountered along the way, we can consider the fact that gratitude simply invites us to witness the positive that exists despite what may have been challenging or painful. For instance, could we know joy if we did not know sorrow?

Gratitude, Sleep, and Relaxation

Guided gratitude meditations can also facilitate our release of any stress or tension we may be carrying in mind and body, improving our ability to rest more effortlessly. When we practice gratitude at the end of the day or at bedtime, this deep relaxation can improve our sleep

As the mind softens and the heart expands in warmth and appreciation for the blessings that have come our way, the body naturally relaxes until finally resting in a deep slumber.
