Gratitude and Journaling

Cultivate an attitude of gratitude! Write a list of ten things in your life which you are grateful for and review it every morning. Alternately, upon rising every morning, write ve things which you are grateful for at that moment. The things you are grateful for may be as profound as gratitude for the workings of the Universe, to gratitude for a single breath, and everything in between. No matter how you choose to bring gratitude into your awareness in the morning, be sure that you take a moment to meditate on each thing you are grateful for and feel the gratitude in your heart. Think of the way it feels when someone gives you a gift that is exactly what you have always wanted, and try to feel that for a few moments for each item on your gratitude list.

This may help you keep track of your progress during the detox. Journaling can be a powerful technique for identifying what is important to you and nding some inner guidance.
More often than not, you are stronger and smarter than you give yourself credit for. Studies have also shown that journaling reducesstress and inammation and can have a profound impact on health.
Here are some examples of questions to ask yourself while journaling:

  • What can I do today to take care of my body?
  • What am I willing to let go of today that is no longer serving me?
  • How do I feel today…physically? …mentally? …emotionally?
  • What am I grateful for today?
  • What is my life purpose and how does the health of my body and mind relate to that purpose?
