Gratitude Journaling

Attitude of GratitudeWe want to do too many things in one day. Our mornings are super busy.

How do we ensure that we are cheerful every day? Is this even possible? We play ,nay juggle with multiple roles – breakfast has to be made, lunch boxes should be packed and we should get ready and reach the school on time. Can we pack in yoga/meditation into our crazy schedules? Especially, when we step out at 7 am?

I am an educator( I prefer the word  educator rather than teacher 🙂 as the definition of teacher has evolved )and I have to catch my bus at 7:00 am. I was trying and was partially successful to pack in fifteen minutes into my morning routine. So was just wondering if there was anything that I could do to make me feel at peace even as I began the day. I stumbled upon gratitude journaling. This seemed simple and I have started observing people who have been kind to me. The days when I am not able to write, I think about the numerous blessings as I travel by the school bus in the morning.

When you do this regularly, you begin to realize how fortunate and privileged you are! And when you enter a classroom, you bring in confidence and create a positive atmosphere.
