Why Practice Daily Gratitude?
Making gratitude part of your daily routine can have a huge impact on your life and the outlook you have.
I’m sure you’ve heard it before.
“Be grateful!”, “Count your blessings!”, “There’s so much to be thankful for!”
It can start to feel redundant, hearing the reminder to be grateful. But, in reality, it does make a massive difference in your life.
Just the small, simple act of listing 3-5 things to be grateful for can help you maintain a more positive outlook on your life.
Not in a toxic positivity way, but through a genuine life-changing mindset shift.
Psychology research has found that “gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships”. (Harvard Health)
Gratitude is also a key factor in manifestation and the Law of Attraction. If you are looking to manifest/attract good things into your life, having gratitude for what you already have is an essential first step.
I could go on and on about the benefits of gratitude in my own life. But, to sum it up, gratitude has given me a renewed sense of joy and positivity in my own life. Even on days that feel hard, I know that there are so many blessings in my life to be grateful for.
Gratitude helps me remember that, even on the tough days, life isn’t all that bad.
There really is so much beauty in our everyday lives to appreciate once you stop to notice it. Gratitude helps bring awareness to that.
Stop. Take a break. Look at your life. Express gratitude. We got this!
What is an A to Z Gratitude List?
An A to Z gratitude list is essentially exactly what it sounds like. It’s a long list of things you are grateful for that begins with each letter of the alphabet.
This is a great way to prompt new gratitude ideas or get inspired if you’re in a bit of a gratitude rut. In a way, this can feel more like a game.
If your daily gratitude practice is starting to lose its appeal or just feels like another daily “to-do”, try out this alphabet gratitude list idea to reignite your desire for it!
How to Use an A to Z Alphabet Gratitude List
This A to Z gratitude list is a fun way to spice up your regular gratitude journaling practice. There are a few different ways you can use an alphabet gratitude list in your own gratitude practice. Let’s explore some of the options for using and creating your own A to Z alphabet gratitude list.
1. Chose 1 letter and list as many things as you can.
The first way you can use this A to Z gratitude technique is by choosing one letter for your daily gratitude. For example, if you chose the letter ‘C’ for the day, you could list a whole bunch of things you’re grateful for that start with a ‘C’. (Coffee, chocolate, cats, candy… you know, the life essentials 😉 )
This strategy reminds me of one of my favorite games, Scattergories. I think it’s super fun to have one letter to brainstorm a bunch of ideas for.
2. List one gratitude for each letter of the alphabet.
This is a great way to express a whole bunch of gratitude in a fairly short period of time. If you’re ever feeling stuck, this exercise provides a bit of structure and a good starting point for your gratitude practice.
Great for getting re-inspired and brainstorming new things to be grateful for!
By going through the alphabet and creating a full A to Z gratitude list, you have just listed 26 separate things to be grateful for. How cool is that?!
3. Make a game out of it.
As I said in idea #1, this alphabet gratitude list reminds me of the Scattergories game.
This is an excellent conversation starter for a group setting. Pick a letter and go around and have everyone list one thing they’re grateful for beginning with the letter chosen. You can continue this with new letters for as long as you’d like.
This makes an excellent table game for Thanksgiving or holiday gatherings. It’s a perfect way to express gratitude, get the conversation flowing, and have fun with those you love!
4. Do a few letters each day.
Most guided gratitude journals will prompt you to list 3-5 things each day. This is a perfect amount to keep your gratitude routine doable and easy to stick to.
To do this, break up the alphabet into smaller chunks. For example, maybe one day you list something for letters A-E. Then the next, you do F-H.
This way you’re still listing 3-5 things, but using the alphabet technique to spice it up a bit!
5. Simply take inspiration from this list.
This gratitude alphabet list has no shortage of ideas. If you don’t want to make your own A to Z list, simply gain inspiration from some of the things listed here. You can then take this inspiration into your own gratitude practice in whatever way feels good to you.
