Did you know that thinking about what you are grateful can be like a cup of coffee and motivate you to get you through the day? It can also make you feel closer to people you feel grateful for especially in romantic relationships. This video from a spiritual leader, Brother David, can help you relax and think about the role gratitude plays in your life. If interested, check out his website: gratefulness.org which talks about gratefulness as a “a universal practice that fosters personal transformation, cross-cultural understanding, interfaith dialogue, intergenerational respect, nonviolent conflict resolution, and ecological sustainability.”
Try writing down in a journal what you feel grateful for! If there are things you feel grateful for about your child, share it with them – it will help to strengthen your relationship. How did you feel afterwards? Let us know in the comments!
