“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough.”  — Melody Beattie

Similar to how our minds tend to wander during meditation, it’s natural to get caught up in the stress and strain of daily life. Just like mindfulness invites us to return to the breath when we notice ourselves lost in thought, mindful living invites us back to the present moment to interrupt the snowballing effects of stress.

Upon returning to the present moment, one of the most powerful tools we have available to us is the practice of gratitude.

Practicing gratitude creates a sense of spaciousness by opening the heart, relaxing the body, and bringing a fresh perspective to the mind.

Even in times of deep struggle and heartbreak, if we look around, there is always something or someone to be grateful for. Of course, gratitude doesn't cancel out what's hard in our lives, but it does invite a sense of balance and reminds us of what we have. 

Our entire being benefits from the practice of returning to the present moment and opening up to life’s gifts.
