- I’ll reveal what you can actually buy for $1 these days
- Plus I’ll show you the surprising things the latest research is saying about this method from improving self esteem to decreasing anger
What if I told you you could improve your happiness and health for only $1? I’m wondering what can you actually get for a dollar these days? Let’s go find out.
So, it appears that $1 really can’t buy you much these days and certainly nothing that’s really gonna buy you happiness.
So how do we get to the bottom of this? Let’s have a chat about it.
Hey, it’s Dr Leevi here from Wises Road Chiropractic. So, how are you going to improve your health and happiness for $1? Let me share with you a little story. About five months ago, I found myself really burned out, really tired and quite unhappy with things and just really stuck in a rut and in quite a foul mood, and it was suggested to me to keep a gratitude journal. Now, I’d heard about the practice of keeping a gratitude journal. I had been meaning to start the practice of keeping a gratitude journal, but I’d never got around to it. And at this stage with where I was at with my mental health, I thought hey, I’m open to anything and it can’t hurt to give it a go. So I gave it a go and I have to say it really made a profound difference and it really helped pull me out of the place that I was in. The thing is, keeping a gratitude journal is nothing new. In some circles this type of recommendation has been around for quite a while. The exciting thing is is that research is now starting to show what people have anecdotally been saying for decades and research is showing that not only can keeping a gratitude journal help with your psychological health, there have been benefits like increasing empathy and reducing aggression, improving our self-esteem, sleeping better. So a whole multitude of things, and the thing is with a gratitude journal, it’s really really easy.
So, just recently, my gratitude journal ran out and hey, being end of financial year, I was able to pick up one of these guys for $1. So with this type of stuff you can do it however you want. If you’ve got spare pieces of paper, if you want to use an app on your phone, if you want to use a notepad on your phone. For this type of stuff, I think nothing beats the old school pen and paper.
My gratitude journal sits beside my bedside table and every night before going to sleep, I just jot down three things: Three things that happened that day that I am grateful for.
Now, the goal of this practice is just to get the wheels in your head turning, to get you to start looking at your life as the glass half full and not the glass half empty and what it will do, is it will train areas of your brain so you start to now look and have that positive outlook on life. And it can also help you realize that, no matter what kind of day you had, you may not have had the best day, you may have finished the day and thought, you know what, I never want to go through that day again, we can always look back and find some things that we are grateful for.
What I love about the gratitude practice is it’s very simple to get started with.
Like I said, all you need is a $1 investment and you can get going on things and you can start practicing it straight away. And this is one of those things that you really just wanna put into your lifestyle habits and just start accumulating those day-after-days to build up that feeling of gratitude in your brain.
So, happy journaling and let me know how you go with things.
I’ll speak to you soon.
