Show Some Gratitude

Nantucket Gate Blog, Tacoma, WA  Prepare your mind and heart for Thanksgiving this month by trying our tips to develop more gratitude in your life.

Thanksgiving is coming up this month, a holiday devoted to giving thanks for what we have. Take some time to reflect on what you are grateful for, express your thanks to others, and develop a more thankful mindset this month with some tips from the Nantucket Gate Blog.


Keep a Gratitude Journal

Start a journal that is devoted to expressing your gratitude and write in it regularly. Even on the hardest days, there is plenty to be grateful for if you take a closer look. Write about experiences, people, and events that inspired you or helped you recognize your gratitude for something. You’ll be amazed at what a little change in perspective can do.


Actively Look for the Good

It can be hard to sometimes see the good in the world, especially if you are going through a hard time. Start looking for the good among all the negativity and noise of the world. At first it might be difficult, but the good is there, even if it is hard to see at times. Once you start looking for good you’ll be surprised by how much easier it becomes to recognize it.


Express Thanks

It can feel awkward to express your gratitude to others, but it can mean a lot to the person. Be sincere when giving thanks, even if you feel awkward at first. People can recognize when you are being sincere and they will appreciate it, whether you realize it or not.


Spend Time Outside

There is nothing quite like being outside among the beauty of nature to instill a sense of gratitude in our hearts. The world is full of so much beauty and you get to be alive and experience it! Take some time to reflect on life outside in a quiet place when you can admire the natural beauty of the outdoors.
