Keep a Gratitude Journal

One of the most common behaviour of people is to keep on pointing (to themselves and to others) the things that they are missing in life or that they wish they had more in their life.

A few days ago, I realized that if anyone wants to increase satisfaction with his/her life, one of the best ways is to keep a gratitude journal. Every day (or whenever you feel low), write down one to five things that you are grateful for, or that you appreciate. It need not be too deep or philosophical. It could even be the smile that your neighbor gave you, or something good that your spouse said about you today morning.

In the long run, this method of counting your blessings will improve your health, increase your energy and motivation, and will make you a positive thinker.
