10 Min Gratitude Meditation: Open your Mind and Heart
In this 10 minute gratitude meditation, you will experience feeling grateful. Practicing this is one way how to improve mindfulness. We focus on feelings of gratitude and appreciation as the object of our attention. We 'mindfully' notice what thoughts, feelings and sensations come up when we focus on gratitude and appreciation. This meditation is informed by principles of neuroscience to increase positivity. Gratitude practice is valuable because it helps you with a growth mindset. You see what is positive and working in your life. You open your mind and heart to an awareness of possibilities. You realize the wealth of good things that surround you daily. You can transform your attitude with gratitude practice; it's proven in studies to increase happiness, well being and health. Meditation is a skill. The more that you practice, the more that you improve. This is a great skill if you have never meditated before. Listening to this is a great way to start the day with positivity. If you say, "I've never meditated before, but I want to start. Where do I begin?" If you're wondering, "Why can't I meditate?" Or, if you simply want to know how to get better at meditation, this video will help you. I have years of experience teaching people how to start a meditation practice. In this video, I provide you with a simple practice that you can do anywhere; it will help to focus attention, increase calm and help you clear your mind of stressful thoughts.
