Day 28 of The #FeelingGrateful Blog Series: The Most Powerful Gratitude Practice You're Not Doing by Marie Forleo

In a recent post on her website, Marie Forleo states, "Whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not, the most fundamental practice to quickly transform your life — any time of year — is gratitude.”

She goes on to say, “Gratitude is simply a deep and genuine sense of appreciation for what you have in your life. For things big and small. For the air you breathe; the unconditional love of your pet; for blessing of someone who loves you.”

Marie asserts, “And this shouldn’t just be an intellectual or mental exercise, it should touch you and fill you up emotionally. Because when you genuinely fill yourself up with the emotion of appreciation, it changes how you feel and it completely alters the actions you take and, therefore, the results you’ll create.”

In the following video, Marie shares a “simple yet highly effective and science-backed way to take your gratitude practice to the next level.”

8 Reasons You Feel Emotionally Exhausted

If you neglect to recharge a battery, it dies. And if you run full speed ahead without stopping for water, you lose momentum to finish the race.
~ Oprah Winfrey ~

How often have you thought, “Where’s my get up and go? I’m tired all the time. But it’s not my body that’s tired. It’s like it’s me that’s tired inside my body.” So many of us are caught up in an energy rat race”, according to Mira Kirshenbaum, author of The Emotional Energy Factor: The Secrets High Energy People Use to Beat Emotional Fatigue. She says, “The demands of life, if not managed, will exhaust our emotional energy.” Emotional energy is defined by Kirshenbaum as “the preconditions for everything we care about. Everything worth doing that’s difficult gets lost without it. Marriages fail when we run out of the emotional energy to reach one more time across the divide of anger and silence. Dreams die when we lack the emotional energy to hang in there in the face of all the obstacles.” In my blog post, Simple Steps to Mana…
