Enjoy Life – Be thankful for simple things

Enjoyment of life can begin and deepen without spending a cent, and without consuming another calorie, or losing another kilogram. It can start happening today.

Being thankful is one of the fundamental ways of achieving greater contentment and enjoyment of life, and we are surrounded by simple things to be thankful for.

A focus can help the process. A good place to start is to focus on those things we can easily take for granted (until we’ve lost them) – our families, our friends, our existing health, or just being able to take long deep breaths in and out, whenever we want to.

An excellent health ritual is to spend a little time each day reflecting and actively being thankful for specific things; and no matter how bad the day has gone, there is always something we can be thankful for.

Practicing being thankful for simple things can lead to enjoying every moment of our lives.
