Be Mindful For Life

7 Everyday Practices For Mindful Moms : Day 7 – Be Mindful For Life – #BarAThon

Welcome to the seventh and last day of 7 Everyday Practices For Mindful Moms.


Being mindful is about celebrating life as it comes. It’s about thanking little things in your life that makes it beautiful. I should thank Vidya Sury wholeheartedly for inspiring me to write My Monthly Gratitude List. It has some tremendous positive effects on my attitude. Read my first post here.



Mindfulness is the starting point for gratitude. Without mindfulness, you can’t be aware of all the things that are going well in your life. A grateful person is a mindful person. Mindfulness with gratitude gives a sense of being more fully alive.

Day 7 – Be Mindful For Life

Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that you receive. It means learning to celebrate your life as if everything were a miracle, and being mindful about life with gratitude.

My Confessions On Practicing Gratitude

I confess that gratitude  ….

Made me more healthier and happier

Transformed me to be more hopeful and helpful

Improved my resilience and empathy

Helped with closer and deeper friendships

Taught me to Let Go and Be Mindful

Increased my confidence and creativity

Helped me to embrace myself

Made me the master of my happiness

Improved my emotional and  relationship quotient

Made me to celebrate the beauty of my life

Five Finger Gratitude Prayer

I have learned a new gratitude lesson through the internet. And I feel so happy to start this Five Finger Gratitude practice and also excited to share this with you today.

Time Needed: 5 to 10 minutes.

Frequency: Everyday.

Simple Steps For Five Finger Gratitude Prayer

  1. Sit or lie down relaxed in a  quiet place.
  2. Spread your one hand out like a starfish. 
  3. With eyes closed take the other hand and softly touch each finger spread out. 
  4. While practicing, breathe deeply as you allow the energy of gratitude to flow around you and within you.
  5. As you gently touch each finger, focus on one thing for which you’re grateful. Visualize it clearly and give thanks for it.
  6. With each touch, spend a few moments dissolving yourself in the feeling of appreciation and gratefulness. 
  7. Focus your mind entirely on gratitude for the place/object/person/experience.
