SHIFT Exercise

SHIFT Exercise

Gratitude. It’s an overused word. People talk about it a lot and how they’re grateful for things but there’s a difference between acknowledgement and actual practice. Only one equals results. I definitely need to practice it more. It’s a great SHIFT for 2015. Did you know that…

Recently scientists have begun to chart a course of research aimed at understanding gratitude and the circumstances in which it flourishes or diminishes. They’re finding that people who practice gratitude consistently report a host of benefits:

– Stronger immune systems and lower blood pressure;

– Higher levels of positive emotions;

– More joy, optimism, and happiness;

– Acting with more generosity and compassion;

– Feeling less lonely and isolated.

I received a “Gratitude Bomb” from one of my amazing Catalyst this morning and it sparked me to write this exercise.

Here’s your assignment.

Drop one gratitude bomb today. It can be an email, a phone call, or an expression in person. If you’re already feeling resistance or labeling this assignment, what does that say?

I don’t care what you have, you will never be fully happy if you don’t have the ability to be grateful.

If you’re brave, post your email or conversation in SHIFT. (1)
