Facing Crises with Gratitude

In a world on pause, it is easy to feel weighed down by the very real concerns over health and finance many are facing.  Many of us tend to feel adrift without the anchors of routine and stability (tough to maintain those things right now!). Despite this, we at LA Relaxed are fond of re-centering the way we perceive stressors and using gratitude to combat the anxiety they create.

Gratitude Quote

Active gratitude is so powerful simply because it forces us to focus on the things that are going right. That looks like different things to different people but for us includes safe shelter, access to healthful nourishing food, the opportunity to continue running a business that is dedicated to taking less away from the planet, the safety of our loved ones, better air quality (and relatively fast WiFi).

 Quote about Gratitude
~
 
We love this quote from Melodie Beattie, “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.”
 
With the world in transition, it’s important to focus on the one thing we do have control over; our attitude towards our own circumstance. We’re choosing acceptance, perspective, and gratitude above all.
