Being grateful, a new form of meditation

There are gray days, we will not deny it. We all spend, more often than not, an impossible day due to a chaotic meeting at work or an impossible argument with our partner. But precisely, it is those gray days that give color to the rest of the week, and even to the rest of our lives.

And it is that it is very easy to complain when something goes wrong, to curse and get angry with everything around us. But how many times do we thank for all the good? Why don’t we feel lucky to be in good health? Isn’t that more important than the discount code you forgot to use on your last online purchase?

To practice gratitude, from Serendipity we propose a very simple exercise, which will also serve as a meditation. The idea is to define a couple of phrases of gratitude to repeat ourselves as a mantra before going to bed and as soon as we get up. In this way, and although it seems fictional, the morning will start with a different look. If our attitude is positive, what happens to us throughout the day will be perceived differently. Maybe not with a smile, but we will relativize much better.
