I did this for five days and found it to be a very calming and inspiritational practice. Along with the 5 days of meditation, this was a great way to learn to calm my busy mind.
What stuck out to me about the gratitudes is how lucky I am to have a warm home, enough to eat, friends, family, and a wonderful community. I also have choices about how I live my life, something I am very grateful to have.
I will continue this practice and read the whole list from time to time just to remind myself what a fortunate person I am!
