The Seven gratitude exercises
Please pick one exercise which you are able make work for you and make it a habit to do it everyday
1. Gratitude Journal
At the end of each day, write down a few items for which you are grateful. 
Time Commitment: Two to five minutes.
The items you list must change and you must keep the activity interesting. Reduce your frequency or the number of items you list each time if you have to – a boring gratitude journal is a completely ineffective one.
The list does not have to be written. You can also say it out loud (that’s what I do).
2. Positive Grace
You do not have to be religious to say grace? Say grace for everything. It doesn’t have to just be food. Say grace to God, or say grace to Lady Luck. Grace is grace.
3. Negative Grace
On a regular basis, imagine some part of your life being worse than it actually is.
Before shower I say grace for not having to bathe in an ice-cold tundra. Before  sleep 
some times say grace for not having to sleep on the floor.
4.Remember The Bad Times
Instead of visualizing something bad that could happen to your life, as with negative grace, visualize something bad that actually has happened, but that you overcame. Remembering the pain and difficulty with which we arrived at the present helps us to feel grateful.
Our life didn’t just happen – we fought, sweat, and maybe bled for it.
5.. Prayer
Prayer is an especially powerful technique for cultivating gratitude because, as a ritualized system, it offers the exact words to say, specific items to be grateful for, and a person or entity to be grateful towards.
6. Gratitude Visualization
Picture in your mind someone for whom you are grateful. Now verbalize out loud or in your mind a few specific reasons for why you are grateful for them. The more specific the better. After a few minutes, switch to someone else.
7. Sensory Application
Picture in your mind someone for whom you are grateful. Now verbalize out loud or in your mind a few specific reasons for why you are grateful for them. The more specific the better. After a few minutes, switch to someone else.
