Practicing gratitude has a lasting impact when done regularly. One study suggested just 2 weeks of a gratitude practice can have a lasting impact for 6 months. Gratitude is also connected to better health as well as more optimism and resilience. You can start a daily gratitude practice at the beginning of your day or end of your day by writing down 3 things you are grateful for each day. You can also shift your focus at any time to what is good and what you are gratitude for in any situation. Choose to take the perspective of a resilient, optimistic person and draw the good from a difficulty.
