Ideas for Cultivating More Love, Gratitude and Inner Beauty in Your Life

  1. Get together with friends and laugh. Laughing increases vitality, cleanses energy, and brings the mind and body into harmony and balance. Laughter not only boosts beauty, it also increases the release of joy increasing endorphins!
  2. Cultivate gratitude with daily lists. Taking one minute each morning to write down a handful of things you have to be grateful for jumps starts the day on a good note.
  3. Create your personal mood boosting meditations. This is so simple, as all you need is your memory, to remind you of your favorite place, and find some headphones with relaxing music or focus on your natural rhythmic breathing in silence. Take a few minutes in the morning and evening visiting your inner sanctuary, and the love, sense of peace and beauty in your life will magnify.
  4. Show appreciation to those that care for you and bring love into your life. Have you ever heard the saying “appreciation appreciates” when shared with friends and loved ones? The truth is that love is best cultivated in a healthy environment that is rich in mindful thankfulness.
