Day 3 - The ten-finger gratitude exercise

10 finger gratitude exercises

Maybe counting your blessings is an old-fashioned idea, but gratitude for what is good in your life is not only a positive exercise, itís one that could surprise you. Use your fingers to count the small things in your life for which you feel grateful. Itís important to keep going until you find ten things, even if it gets harder after three or four. This is exactly what the exercise is for - intentionally bringing you to awareness of the tiny, previously unnoticed elements of the day. Even simple, taken-for-granted pleasures like being warm enough, the flavour of a good cup of coffee, the unconditional affection shown by a pet. Get to ten and youíll already be feeling better!
