How to Show Yourself Gratitude

Thanksgiving is the perfect time to give thanks and show gratitude – but being grateful or having “an attitude of gratitude” should also be part of your daily routine during recovery. And this includes thanking yourself -- for showing up, for doing your best and for being you. The better you become at appreciating yourself, the more invested you’ll be in your recovery. And you’ll also be more able to give your time, energy and love to friends and family who have supported you along the way.

Here are a few ways to say thank you for being you.
  • Look in the mirror and compliment yourself each day. 
  • Celebrate your everyday wins and small recovery victories.
  • Turn negative self-talk into positive thoughts. Make a conscious effort to stop yourself when you find yourself talking negatively.  
  •  Keep a running list of things you like about yourself – and refer to it when you feel your self-confidence waning. 
  • Start a journal and write down what’s good about your life or quotes that inspire you to express gratitude in everyday life.
