All About Gratitude Meditation

What is gratitude meditation?

Gratitude meditation is a form of mindfulness meditation. It involves focusing on the things that you are grateful for in your life. This can be done by thinking about specific people or events, or simply by focusing on the good things in your life in general. The aim of gratitude meditation is to cultivate an attitude of thankfulness and appreciation.

What is gratitude practice?

Gratitude practice is the regular act of expressing gratitude. This can be done in many different ways, such as writing in a gratitude journal, saying thanks to someone who has helped you, or simply taking a moment each day to appreciate the good things in your life.

How can I get started with gratitude meditation?

If you're new to gratitude, the best way to cultivate gratitude is to start small. A good place to start is by taking a few moments each day to think about one thing that you're grateful for. Once you've done this for a few days, you can begin to increase the amount of time you spend on gratitude meditation. You may also want to try different techniques, such as visualizing the things you're grateful for with guided meditation.

Understanding the present moment

One of the main goals of gratitude meditation is to help you focus on the present moment. This is because it can be easy to get caught up in the past or worry about the future. When you're focused on the present, you can appreciate all of the good things that are happening right now.

How do I practice gratitude meditation?

There are many different ways to practice gratitude meditation. One way is to focus on your breath and count each inhale and exhale. Another way is to think about the people and things you're grateful for. You can also try repeating a mantra or affirmation, such as “I am grateful for all the good in my life.”

This 30-day challenge is all about you practicing gratitude meditation and finding the best way for you develop mindful awareness and joy daily. It feels good to feel grateful, so why not capture those positive emotions by bringing the attitude of gratitude into your own life? Let's get into the challenge below!

A 30 Day Gratitude Meditation Practice

Practicing gratitude for thirty straight days is a great way to bring meditation practice into your everyday life. Here are the ground rules:

Rule One: Find something to feel grateful about every day.

Even if your day sucked, surely you can muster the positive energy to find one thing to be grateful for.

Rule Two: Don't use guided gratitude meditation online (yet)

Tools come and go, but your positive mindset is forever. Guided meditation is an easy way to get started, but it doesn't create a strong mindfulness practice over the long term. The best positive habits for meditation are the ones that you can include in your daily life without your smartphone.

Rule Three: There are no real rules.

These rules work for me and help me feel gratitude, but they might not work for your gratitude meditation practice. So if you hate my first two rules – throw them out. Use guided meditation. Whatever works for your well being works for me. The mindful movement is diverse and can handle all of your variations.

Rule Four: Ok, one more rule: write it down.

Tracking your progress is a great motivator. I use the free app Presently for my own mindful meditation practice. It's not a guided meditation app, but really more of a journaling app. It helps me take a deep breath at the end of every day and reflect back on the day. I can extend sympathetic joy to the people in my life, and overall, improve my well being. So track that stuff. I'm currently on a 125 day streak and it's amazing.
