For many people, the key to having more gratitude is to give back to others in their local community. 

Not only will it make you more grateful for the things that you may take for granted, but studies have shown that volunteering for the purpose of helping others increases our own well-being, and thus our ability to have more gratitude.

Being grateful can make you happy, but being happy can also make you grateful. There are plenty of other ways to get your mood up, including exercising or participating in a hobby you enjoy.

If you’re struggling with feeling the gratitude in the moment, go spend time with your friends and family. It will give you a chance to practice your acts of gratitude on people that you care about.

You can increase your feelings of gratitude by expressing that same gratitude to the people you care about.

Write down your positive thoughts to further focus your attention on the subject. 

Sit down daily and think through five to ten things you are grateful for. 

The habit of being grateful starts with appreciating every good thing in life and recognizing that there is nothing too small for you to be thankful for.

Gratitude is not only about being thankful for positive experiences. Sometimes thinking about negative or difficult situations can help to really nail down what you have to be thankful for.
