world’s most powerful 60 second habit

January 2, 2013

This is the world’s most powerful 60 second habit:

Get a small notebook and within 30 minutes of
waking each morning write down just one thing you
are grateful for.

Just one thing and it should not take you longer
than 60 seconds to write it down.

Done. That’s all you have to do.

This one simple habit is worth more than
bars of gold. I am very serious about that.

Universities around the world have studied the
art of gratitude and scientifically proven its benefits
as one of the surest ways to improve a persons
sense of well being.

Here is one example from Dr. Robert Emmons of the
University of California at Davis and Dr. Michael McCollough
of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas:

"The first group kept a diary of the events that occurred
during the day… the second group recorded their unpleasant
experiences, [and] the last group made a daily list of things
for which they were grateful."

The results of the study indicated that daily gratitude
exercises resulted in higher reported levels of alertness,
enthusiasm, determination, optimism and energy.

Additionally, the gratitude group experienced less
depression and stress, was more likely to help others,
exercised more regularly and made more progress
toward personal goals.

According to the findings, people who feel grateful are
also more likely to feel loved.

Wow…Isn’t it incredible to think you can tap into all that
through a simple 60 second habit done daily!

Each time you write one thing that you are grateful for,
imagine it like you are making a priceless deposit into
your emotional bank account.

It may be the best thing you do all day.
