Relax Already: Make a Gratitude List

A close friend of mine started a really charming tradition. Every morning she writes out a gratitude list and emails it to her friends and family. She sits down quietly with herself, and jots down all the things in her life that she is thankful for. It can be as deep as "I'm grateful for the love and openness I share with my husband," or something light and joyful like "I'm grateful for chocolate-covered strawberries." It not only makes you feel warm and fuzzy to concentrate on all the things that make you happy for few moments of your day, but it's also a wonderful way to relieve stress and forget about the not-so-joyful parts of your life. Keep your daily gratitude lists to yourself, or share them with others to inspire some calm and contentedness in their lives.
