Positive emotions like appreciation increase heart-rhythm coherence. Use these simple tips to help you boost your daily appreciation awareness.
Set aside a few minutes at the end of each day to write down a few things you are grateful for. It can be as simple as appreciating the person who held the door open for you.
The practice helps you see life more through the perspective of gratitude. Once you write your list, allow a couple minutes to focus on the genuine feeling of appreciation for the things on your list. Be consistent with the practice to get the most out of it.
