How To Maintain An Attitude Of Gratitude
Updated: Feb 16
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we thought it seemed fitting to talk about gratitude. Being grateful can make you happier, and being happier can make you feel more fulfilled in every aspect of your life.
At Harmonic Media, we wholeheartedly believe in the importance of focusing on the good that exists and finding ways to give back, pay it forward and any other opportunity that exists to make a positive impact on the lives of others. We are more than a custom graphic solutions company — we are eternal optimists spreading positivity, and finding reasons to be thankful. Here are a few ways we are able to maintain an attitude of gratitude.
If You Have Something Nice To Say…
Say it! You can increase your feelings of gratitude by letting your family, friends, and coworkers know how grateful you are for them. As human beings, we tend to get caught up in our lists of things to do and as a result, forget about the importance of the things we say. Words are powerful. Use them wisely to tell others they are appreciated.
According to Glass Door, 81 percent of employees said they would work harder for a boss that expresses gratitude.
As a business owner, that includes creating a workplace culture that makes people feel respected, happy and grateful to have a job they 💓. In the spirit of practicing what we preach, the Harmonic team would like to give a shoutout to all of our amazing clients. Like they say in the best award acceptance speeches, “we wouldn’t be here without you.” There’s nothing better than doing great work for great people.
Take Note of The Little Things
Just as you are more likely to achieve your goals when you write them down, you are more aware of all your blessings when you keep a gratitude journal. Some of us at Harmonic prefer to call it our ongoing list of why life is so freakin’ awesome.
Make a daily habit of writing about the little things that bring you joy and prepare to be amazed at what a big impact it can have on your overall attitude. You were able to finish drinking your coffee while it was still hot. You ran into an ex and the chance encounter confirmed you really did dodge a bullet. You love your job (this one is on every Harmonic team member’s list). Nothing is too small to be thankful for, and the sooner you realize that, the sooner your heart will feel warm, fuzzy and full of gratitude.
The Power of A Glass Half Full Mentality
We’re not talking about your drink of choice - although that never hurts. We’re talking about making a conscious effort to see the good in any situation. We all inevitably face hardships and obstacles. And as an independently owned and operated small business, you can bet Harmonic has had to overcome its fair share of challenges. It’s almost like a rite of passage and those with passion, determination, grit and gratitude are able to overcome life’s unexpected twists and turns. And in the process, we are able to be more mindful of all the things that do go right on a regular basis.
Grateful For The Ability To Give
When you make a conscious effort to pay it forward, karma goes from being a b*tch to being your best friend. Studies have shown that volunteering to help others actually improves the well-being of the giver — talk about a win-win situation! From supporting a local nonprofit to purchasing an eco-friendly product to giving someone a compliment, there are unlimited opportunities to do good.
Harmonic has always prioritized staying involved in our community while making a positive impact on the lives of those around us. In our humble and harmonious opinion, Coloradoans are pretty much the best people, making it that much easier to be grateful that we get to call The Centennial State our home. In addition to giving back, we aim to give our clients custom graphic solutions that exceed their expectations and lead to exceptional results.
Our custom graphics work is the perfect blend of creativity and strategy, proving we’ve got the looks and the brains to get the job done right. Every. Single. Time. We are waiting and ready to be grateful for the chance to make any idea you have a reality. While you’re thinking about all the possibilities, we invite you to meditate on our deeply insightful mantra: An attitude of gratitude makes the heart feel at ohm.
From all of us at Harmonic, we are grateful you took the time to read this post and hope it has served as a source of optimism. We look forward to continuing to find ways to spread kindness, optimism and wickedly awesome custom printing solutions.
