Hi, this is Sha Nacino! I’m here in the beautiful Canyon Woods in Tagaytay in the Philippines. And today I’d like to talk about a habit that will help you to become healthier. Not just physically but also emotionally and I call this the gratitude walk.
And this is how the gratitude walk works. Set aside maybe 10 minutes a day wherein you just walk around preferably in nature. And for the next 10 minutes what you need to do is think of all the things that you are grateful for. So for the next 10 minutes just be grateful, you can go wide or you can go deep. So this is how it goes. If you go wide, you can say something like, “Thank you Lord for the sky. Thank you for sun. Thank for my nose. Thank you for my ears. Thank you for my eyes. Thank you for my family. Thank you for my work, etc.”
You get it? So you go wide. Just random things that you’re grateful for, or you may also go deep. So go deep means that you may say something like, “Lord, thank you for the sun, because the sun, when it shines it makes me happy. Thank you for the sun because the sun makes my bones stronger. Thank you for the sun because it gives color to the day. It gives light to the day. Thank you for the sun, because of the sun there are flowers, there are trees. Thank you for the sun, because of the sun I’m healthier.” Right? So things like that.
So the idea of the gratitude walk is just think of all the blessings that you are grateful for. And just thank God for the next 10 minutes. So you may do this every day. I actually do this twice a day. I do 30 minutes in the morning, and 30 minutes in the afternoon. But as a start, you may do it for 10 minutes until you get used to it. So again just random things that you’re grateful for and thank God for it. And it will really change your perspective because you will train your eyes to see the blessings in every situation, because you will be forced to look at the blessings and see the blessings for the next 10 minutes. Alright. So I hope you do that. And let me know in the comments below how’s your experience in doing this gratitude walk. Thank you and I wish you success and happiness. Again this is Sha Nacino. God bless you!
