How does it feel to be grateful? Throughout our busy lives, we often lose the chance to find stillness. Do this making room for gratitude meditation.
In a busy world, we tend to forget to invite gratitude into our lives – not because we are unappreciative on the deepest level but because our minds tend to be everywhere but here. Only when truly aware of the present moment can we express our deepest capacity for gratitude.
In this guided meditation on gratitude, we are invited to welcome this deep sense of appreciation to come to the forefront of our awareness. Breathing gratitude in and out, we start to sense how it changes our direct experience of life.
The Benefits of Gratitude
Being appreciative of life’s blessings has countless benefits on every level of our being, which is why guided meditations on gratitude are tools that can enhance both our mental and emotional well-being. When we practice gratitude, we are drawn into the blessings of the present moment as we are invited to consider all of the things that bring us peace, joy, and contentment right here and now.
This pull into the present loosens the grip of stress and anxiety and improves our sense of relaxation and ease with life’s flow. Gratitude helps us to relax, and in doing so, it can also help to improve the quality of our sleep.
We can practice gratitude by listening to mindfulness meditations on the subject, by writing out gratitude lists, or by silently giving thanks throughout the day. The more we practice appreciation, the more attuned we become to the abundance that exists all around us.
