Gratitude can be a hard behavior to learn, but the benefits can be so rewarding. When we get so deep into the routine of our daily lives, we don’t always consciously look for the positives. Maybe some feel there isn’t anything to be grateful for. It can be hard to see sometimes.

One way is to look for just three things, and don’t stop looking until you find them. Maybe they aren’t big, at first. Maybe they are just little things, like a roof over your head or a job. If you begin to look for things to be grateful for, you will see more and more.

Work toward finding a few more each day. Before long it will be a new behavior that will give you big benefits. You’ll start to see that even though things are rough, there are still things to be happy about.
