How do you implement this before bed?
Keep a Gratitude Journal
Before going to bed, take a few minutes to write down three to five things you are grateful for.
It could be the laughter of loved ones, the beauty of nature, or even the simple pleasures of life. Writing in your gratitude journal helps shift your focus to the positive aspects of your day.
Reflect on the Day's Blessings
As you lie in bed, take a moment to mentally recount the positive moments and experiences of the day. Embrace the feeling of gratitude for these blessings and let go of any negative thoughts or worries.
Practice Mindful Breathing
Engage in deep and mindful breathing as you reflect on gratitude. Inhale deeply, hold for a moment, and then exhale slowly. This simple breathing exercise can help calm the mind and promote relaxation.

Avoid Technology Before Bed
Minimize screen time and social media before bedtime. Gratitude practice requires mindfulness and presence, which can be disrupted by digital distractions.
Focus on the Present
Gratitude centers you in the now, encouraging you to cherish the joys and blessings of the present moment. Remember to stay at present and avoid dwelling on the past or worrying about the future.
