Want to know how to get yourself into a good mood?

Be Grateful.

There is nothing that will get you feeling better than to practice being grateful for all of the things that you have and for all for all the things that others have given to you. All you have to do is to contemplate for a few minutes all of the wonderful things that are yours right now. Think about all of the things that you have received on any one day;
Perhaps it’s a smile from a person that you had never met, or something that you bought for yourself or maybe even money that you received. I personally give thanks anytime that I see the sun shining since this will always cheer me up.

Taking the time to thank a friend with sincerity, believe me this will give you great joy. Appreciating those around you by giving thanks either internally or externally can have a wonderful effect on the world. Giving thanks raises your energy level and makes you smile. As you smile, those around you are affected by your mood and begin to smile as well.  Your words of gratitude encourage those around you to also appreciate what they have, which then allows them to increase their energy and feel joy.

A wonderful exercise is to take the time each day to write a list of all of the things that you have to be thankful for. When the list is done, take the time to write down or to verbally give thanks to the world and to all those that helped you throughout this day.

Thank you for reading my silly mental meanderings. You inspire me to write and to better myself and the more that I write, the more that I learn about myself.
