3 Easy Ways Of Giving Thanks That Will Benefit You

Have you ever thought about the benefits of being thankful and grateful for what you have every day?  Since this is Thanksgiving week, I thought that it would be appropriate to write about giving thanks and the benefits and positive results that you can get from giving thanks every single day of your life, and not just once a year.

Are you Saying Thank You Every Day?

I know that this week people will sit at the Thanksgiving dinner table and give thanks because they are reminded of doing so on this American National Holiday of Thanksgiving.  But, is giving thanks something you’re thinking about every single day of your life or just that one time a year?  It doesn’t matter in what superior force you believe in, may you call it God, or the Universe, and whether you are a devoted religious person or not so much; you should be thankful and grateful each and every day and say so.  Why is this so important?

Why is it so Important to be Thankful Every Day?

It’s very important to be thankful every day, and not just once a year, because the more thankful you are, the more you will have to be thankful for. This is so because of the Law of Attraction effect.  The Law of Attraction dictates that you will attract what you already “feel you have” (not want you want to have while feeling empty or even angry).  The Law of Attraction doesn’t care that you have it or not, you need to “feel” that you do have it in order to work for you.

When you feel that you do have something to be thankful for, whether it’s already here in your physical world or not yet, you are sending high vibrations out to the universe and by law the Universe will give back to you according to the vibrations that you are sending out.  By being thankful for what you already have and what you want to have as if you already had it, you are attracting more good things to you.  This is the very simple equation of the law of attraction, and it doesn’t matter how many articles I can write about the subject, it all comes down to this simple fact.

Here are 3 simple ways that you can be thankful everyday and turn them into a habit so you will never forget about being thankful.

1 – Wake up Every Morning Giving Thanks

I know it may sound cliché for some people, but I wake up every morning saying thank you before I am out of bed.  When this becomes a habit, you won’t get out of that bed without saying thanks first.

Every morning as you open your eyes think about a handful of things you are thankful for and say it out loud or at least in a whisper.  Need some ideas?

By thankful for your health, for the meals that you can afford for that day, for your family, for your work, for the very bed you are lying on, for the activities you may have for that day, for your children, for your husband/wife, for your pets and for whatever you may work on having but don’t physically have quite yet.

There are so many things you could be thankful for, I could fill up a list with this post with those alone.  As you do this you will start counting your blessings.

2 – Take a Grateful Walk

Anyone who knows me would tell you that I am a walker. I love to walk and I can swallow miles and miles with no problem. When I used to live in New York City I used to walk at least 5 miles a day (that’s probably what I loved the most about New York City).  Unfortunately, I wasted my time as for using my mind during those walk was concerned.  Now, I don’t only use my walks for my physical health but my mind is very involved in it as well.  I do what Carol Look, Tapping expert calls a “Grateful Walk”.

What is a grateful walk?  Well, Carol Look suggest that you walk at least 10 to 15 minutes a day while you think about all the things you can be thankful for and mention them (speak them out) as you walk.  The positive energy of both walking and giving thanks creates an incredibly high vibration, and by the time you are done with your walk you will feel super energized and happy.  Not only you’ve given thanks to God and the Universe but you’ve put yourself in the perfect mode to receive, which is high vibration mode.

I practice grateful walks just about every day. Try it and you will love it.

3 – Practice Thanks Giving Tapping

If you are not familiar with tapping you can check this out and you will have a clear understanding about what tapping is and what does it do for your vibrations.  Tapping works a bit like acupuncture but instead of using needles on specific areas of your body you use your fingers and tapping gestures.  Tapping is used to release energy of the body and it’s perfect for “blocked energy” that sometimes prevents your mind and body to function as it should.  In this sense it works a lot like acupuncture as it can help and heal both emotional and physical issues.  I use tapping for everything for the past 5 years, and I use tapping to give thanks as well.

You can give thanks especially for what you may not have in your life yet.  For example, you may be saying things such as:

  • I am living in the perfect home for me
  • I am more and more successful by the day
  • I have the perfect occupation that makes me happy and fulfilled
  • I have the perfect partner, husband, wife…
  • I have all the time that I need to relax
  • I enjoy perfect health
  • I love my life and it’s getting better and better everyday

You can also end your tapping session by saying things like:

  • Thank you God for bringing me…
  • Thank you Universe for allowing me…
  • Thank you God/Universe for giving me…
  • Thank you God/Universe for revealing …. to me…

You can create your own perfect thank-giving-tapping session by writing it down and saying the phrases as you tap (as shown here) every day before going to bed. If your time allows you could do one session in the morning before starting your day and one at night before going to bed.

So, before I go I wanted to thank you for coming to this blog on a regular basis and for leaving great comments and feedbacks. I’m so ever thankful for this and appreciate you very much!

I know I have to do my own tapping video, but for now here is a thanksgiving tapping session.

  1. Wonderful Sylviane!

    Those are wonderful ways to give thanks this Thanksgiving. 🙂

    Co-incidentally, giving thanks everyday and being grateful for all that we have in our lives was the topic of my post too, which I just put up yesterday. So, I guess somewhere along the line I am following the Law of Attraction because I truly believe that it’s not just one day that we need to give thanks, but make it a part of our daily routine – isn’t it?

    I agree about expressing gratitude the first thing in the morning, something that I do, though my thanks are rather quick as I am time-bound as I’ve to send my kids off to school etc. I love my morning walks too, and my Mom used to always tell me to chant His name or remember Him with every step, and that’s what I do. Remembering Him and all that he’s given us, and simply being grateful for that. 🙂

    Thanks giving tapping sounds wonderful, though I’ve never really tried it. I guess it won’t let your mind wander anywhere this ways.

    Thanks for sharing these wonderful ways with us. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours too. 🙂

    1. Hi Harleena,

      Yes, I know. What a surprise I got when I noticed that your post was about the same topic as mine, but it makes sense at this time of the year, doesn’t it?

      I enjoyed your post just about a couple of hours ago and realized that the post in itself was also very different than mine, and that’s a good thing, so people going to your blog and mine won’t read twice the same thing even though we both are talking about being thankful.

      Thank you for coming, Harleena 🙂

  2. Hey Sylviane,

    We’re on the same wavelength this week because this is what my post is about tomorrow. Yep, gratitude…

    I love what you shared because your’s is more geared to reminding people about the law of attraction and I just hope and wish that everyone is grateful every single day for all that they have and are. I know I sure am and it’s how I start each day.

    I do say my gratitude actually when I take Kayla out each morning so it’s my mini walk. Each time I take her out I do the same thing and I use to say them on my afternoon walk but now that my Mom is walking with me we actually have a conversation.

    Now I’ve heard of tapping but have never done it. That girl taps a lot! Not sure if I’m implement that into my life or not but it was interesting to watch. My friend who is a physic says that she does the tapping on her chest mostly to release all the energy. Never seen it done everywhere.

    Thank you for sharing this and I do hope that from this day forward, those who have not been saying grace everyday will now. It will turn their lives around.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    1. Hi Adrienne,

      Yes, I think that this is the “being grateful post week”. I was just on Harleena’s a little while ago today and she has hers too. Can’t wait to read yours tomorrow.

      I know that you don’t have any problems with giving thanks every day, and that is all the better to you. People don’t know what they’re missing when they don’t.

      Well, tapping is not only on the chest, it’s on the top of the head, on the eyebrows, under the eyes on top of the cheek bone, under the nose, on the chin, on the collar bone and under the arm pits. there are also a point on the side of each finger tips. If this lady does only her chest then she missing some important points. Like I said it’s like acupuncture and there are specific places. I love tapping 🙂

      Thanks for coming, Adrienne, and have a great Holiday. I will read your post while my turkey is cooking 🙂

  3. You said something I say every year, Sylviane… being grateful on Thanksgiving is nice but being grateful ALL THE TIME is better. There is always something to be thankful for. I try to wake up every day and remind myself to be grateful for something because it sets the tone for the whole day. When I wake up and feel crabby because I don’t want to get out of bed or it’s cold or maybe there is something going on that I don’t want to do that day, then the whole day just goes downhill. It really does matter how you perceive things.

    I have never heard of tapping before so that’s new to me! Every time I come here I get a lesson in something new 🙂 So here is mine: I am thankful for YOU and for all the things you teach and your inspiration!

    1. Hi Carol,

      Well, you’re very welcome and people can only dream for good commenters like you on their blog.

      I know what you mean about not wanting to get up in the morning and feeling a bit cranky, that’s why as soon as I catch myself feeling that way I start with my thanks which makes me in a much better mood almost instantly.

      So, again, yes, thanks for coming and giving us your thoughts and feedbacks.

    1. Hi Viola,

      Yes, I definitely recommend tapping every day even twice a day if you wish. I usually tap in the evening or also when I feel stressed out or anxious at anytime of the day for any reason. Tapping is a great releaser.

  4. Hi Sylviane,

    Woops… I know, I’m late enough, nah? 😉 Playing with catch up after busy days…

    I’ve been thankful for what I had mostly dear. Well, mostly satisfies with ’em 🙂 Though I’m thankful and start my day speaking myself in my mind that it’s another brand new day to thankful of, I wasn’t thought of things such as taking grateful walk or so. What I goes with meditation which I learnt since my childhood and thankful for everything that way. I barely go out though as I mostly being awake mostly at night time 🙂

    Thanks for sharing about grateful walk and Thanksgiving tapping, which I’d like to explore more 🙂

    Thankies for all your efforts in helping us to make a better life dear 🙂

    Have a Wonderful Week…

    1. Yes, Mayura,

      Not a problem, you’re never late 🙂

      I’m glad that you are conscious about giving thanks for what you have and aware that you are blessed. Keep up the good work that way!

  5. Hi Sylviane,

    I like number one because that is exactly what I do! Been doing it for years and you know what? It is great for wellness. It did become a habit of mine and whatever comes to mind I am thankful. OK…I will let out a secret. Today when I did this, what came to my mind was so silly it made me laugh. It was my flatware set. Imagine being thankful for my forks and spoons? He He He But it was the first thing and as I chuckled to myself I looked more closely, I realized that they were very expensive. Then I was grateful that I had the money to buy them.

    Sometimes silly things pop into my head, but it is the little things that bring us so much joy. I give thanks for my husband. Those little things he does like bringing me coffee in the morning is worth more than diamonds gold. You know what I mean.

    So If we are thankful for the smallest things, we know we have reached the mindset of applying it in our lives. And it does make us very happy.

    1. Hi Donna,

      Nothing is too silly to be thankful for. I totally get what you’re saying about being thankful for your silverware set. I do this stuff all the time. I bought a paper shredder the other day and I said my thanks for it 🙂 So, don’t feel weird ya know!

      Thanks for your visit and bringing up this point.

  6. Hi Sylviane;)
    Since we are talking about Thanksgiving and thanking everything and everyone,let me thank you for this nice post.
    I remember my mentor a few weeks ago asking me:
    ” are you thanking the bed you sleep on for the goodnight sleep it gave you each night?”
    ” are you thanking the spoon, fork and knife that feeds you when you eat?
    and he went on and on…
    This is so powerful, knowing and remembering to thank the small things we take for granted teaches us to be present to the here and now and creates space for more of what we love to enter in our lives, with grace.
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Patricia,

      Yes, a lot of people totally forget to be thankful for the little things, the things we tend to completely take for granted. I’m glad you were taught that way, Patricia.

      Thanks for coming. I’m always very tankful for my visitors 🙂

  7. Sylviane, we must appreciate everything we have and we do not have like struggles and problems.

    I used to think it was crazy to think giving away stuff could make you feel better, but I have been giving most of my life when I can and I notice how I feel grateful I am for my situation.

    I am glad to be able to help those that need it the most. thanks for this post.

    1. Hi Michael,

      Yes, giving things away to others, offering gifts does make us, the givers feel good. As a matter of fact it’s so, so true that giving makes you happier than receiving. Doesn’t it?
