-Now begin to think of the things that you are grateful for in your life at the present moment.
-Begin to repeat each thing you are grateful for and say why, for example,
“I am grateful for my health because I can do so many wonderful things everyday.”
“I am grateful for my home because it keeps me safe, warm and dry.”
