Brittany McNabb is the founder of Brthe Space – an Auckland-based mindfulness and meditation studio ‘for non-meditators.’ In Issue 03, we grabbed a cushion and sat down for a chat with Brittany to learn more about mindfulness, including its powerful physical and emotional benefits.

She shares with us her tips on welcoming more gratitude into our lives…

Journaling

Keep a gratitude journal and favourite pen beside your bed and jot down three things each day that you were thankful for (moments big and small that brought meaning and joy to your day).

 

Daily Thank-You

Each week (or evening if you’re feeling extra inspired) send a thank you text to someone who made a difference, or showed up for you in a meaningful way.

Host A Dinner Party

 A double whammy, social connection and gratitude! Spend some quality time with your closest friends over good food and lots of laughs.

 

Vision Board

Feel like getting creative? Get out the magazines and create a vision board filled with images, memories, graphics and quotes that make you feel inspired and thankful.

 

 

Gratitude Jar

Set up a jar and memo pad, and each evening write a moment, person or thing that you’re thankful for, then fold it up and drop it in the jar. Let the jar fill up and at the end of the year read through all the reasons you have to be grateful and joyful.

 

Anchoring

Trouble sticking to the habit? Try anchoring your daily gratitude practice to a part of your daily routine. Mentally note three things you’re grateful for during your shower, brushing your teeth or making your morning coffee.

 

Pay It Forward

 One of the quickest ways to hack your brain into positivity is giving to others! Choose a small, random act of kindness for the day (pay for a strangers coffee, compliment someone, pay for a strangers parking or donate some clothes to charity). We rise by lifting others.

Download The App ‘Gratitude’

Basically the digital version of a gratitude jar. Take photos of moments and people you’re grateful for and add them to your app feed each evening. It offers a library of moments to scroll through whenever you need a pick-me-up.
