How to Cultivate a More Meaningful Gratitude Practice

Do the usual “gratitude practices” ever feel formulaic or simplistic to you? Here are some that I’ve found can go a little deeper.

This week as we head toward U.S. Thanksgiving, you’ll see a lot about gratitude around the web. But sometimes gratitude practices can feel like just another obligation. And on those days when we’re not feeling particularly grateful, a “gratitude journal” can feel shallow. Today I talk about a few practices and insights that have worked better for me.

In this 11-minute episode, I talk about:

  • “Checklist gratitude” and why I have a hard time with it
  • A simple gratitude practice that boosts your confidence (and might even make you more productive)
  • Finding gratitude when you’re having a crappy day (or week)
  • The gift that difficult times can bring
