Breaker, December na! Can you believe it?

Ang bilis ng panahon.

Parang dati lang you’re stuck in your day job, now you’re a businessman or a businesswoman so quickly. Nuxx!

What are the things you’re grateful for?

Cultivate gratitude 01

Hindi man ito ‘yung year na ine-expect mo when the pandemic hit, there is still something na puwedeng ipagpasalamat.

Just like right now, binabasa mo ‘tong article. You woke up today. May phone or laptop ka to communicate. You survived the past months.

Sometimes kasi ang basehan mo ng “blessing” ay kapag may bongga kang na-receive or na-achieve sa buhay, you fail to appreciate the familiar, the usual.

Pero isipin mo, Breaker, it’s those what you think are small things that make up those big things. Makakapag-give ka ba sa family mo if you did not wake up today?

Ganyorn!

BreakThrough tip #1: Magsulat ng 3 bagay na grateful ka every day.

Alam mo ba, Breaker, meron daw tinatawag na reactive gratitude and active gratitude? Sabi ‘yan ni Mark Pettit, Strategic Business Coach at Lucemi Consulting, in his article 5 Ways to Cultivate an Attitude of Gratitude in Thrive Global.

Kapag sinabi mong reactive gratitude, ito ‘yung waiting for something to happen bago ka maging thankful.

Ikaw ba ‘to before?

Kapag active gratitude naman, ito ‘yung consciously or actively looking for something or someone to appreciate. Sa active gratitude, thankfulness becomes a choice.

Ikaw na ‘to ngayon!

“Start with writing down or saying three things you’re grateful for or appreciate every day, even if you’ve had a bad day. This could be by writing in a notebook, a gratitude journal or on post it notes,” Mark said.

Ano ang impact neto sa ‘yo in the long run?

“If you do this consistently, you’ll develop an active gratitude habit and your life will change. You’ll feel happier, more positive and more excited. Plus, the value of the people and things that matter most will appreciate in value. A real double win,” shinare niya.

BreakThrough tip #2: Spend more time with grateful people.

Nakakahawa ang negativity, Breaker.

Kapag ang lagi mong kasama ay walang ginawa kundi mag-whine at mag-complain, more likely magiging ganun ka rin.

Pero same as positivity, it’s infectious.

BreakThrough tip #3: Say “thank you” to someone.

Kalian ‘yung last time na you thank or appreciate someone?

Ito na ‘yung go signal mo to thank that person by writing a letter and visiting them!

“Writing a letter of gratitude and delivering it—what positive psychologists refer to as a “gratitude letter” and “gratitude visit”—can bring positive feelings to the people you appreciate, and even more positive feelings to you! It’s a big gesture that brings even bigger benefits,” Elizabeth Scott, MS said sa article niyang Cultivate Gratitude and Feel Happier With Life in Verywell Mind.

Or, puwede rin namang writing an appreciation post sa Instagram story mo or video call them. Tamang-tama matatapos na ang taon. Who are those people who helped you during this challenging times?
