There are so many benefits that surface from taking the time to appreciate what and who we have in our lives. At 180 Sanctuary @ Puripai Villa, clients are coached three simple mindfulness tips for enlarging their feelings of gratitude.
I know it can at times be difficult to find things that we are thankful for. However, by finding time to practice gratitude in small ways each day you can simply let go of toxic emotions such as bitterness and resentment. Gratitude can fulfill our personal lives and also improve our performance at work by helping us to get more sleep, contribute more constructively and improve the working environment.
Our clients at 180 Sanctuary are introduced to these three simple practices during their stay with us. They are encouraged to practice them consistently on a daily basis. Why? Because it can help them to reflect on what they appreciate in life. It also enables them to grow their sense of gratitude and adopt an attitude of gratitude.

Try and think of one person in that you appreciate or are grateful to have in your life. Maybe someone that has inspired you in some particular way. Allow yourself to fee what it is about this particular person that you are actually grateful for.

Message, call, text or make a time to meet that person right now and share with them what they have done which makes you feel grateful. Or simply let them know you appreciate having them in your life.
