Mindfulness Advent Calendar: Day 9

Day 9: Gratitude.


Welcome to day 9 of this mindfulness Advent calendar. For today’s exercise I’d like you to sit for a small moment and write down at least five things you are grateful for. You can work with any big and small things, persons or circumstances, such as the love in your relationships, the sunshine, a warm shower, or a person who once held the door open for you. Read the list silently or out loud to yourself. Take a break after every sentence and let it sink deeply into your consciousness.

How are you feeling now? The mindful practice of gratitude is a high road to more joy in life. It opens up our hearts even on the darkest days and the best thing is: We can use it every day for free by only applying a tiny bit of effort 🙂

I wish you a lovely 9th of December and will be back with more mindfulness tomorrow.


Advent season is supposed to prepare us for Christmas and bring calm, light, and joy to the dark winter days. However, December is one of the busiest months for most people and it seems almost impossible to find some rest. That’s why Heartbridges Writings has created this mindfulness Advent calendar. You will find a daily post with a picture and a suggestion for a small exercise, that should grant you a moment of calm even on the most stressful day. For more information check out my first post on the calendar.

P.S.: Find the Advent calendar also on Instagram and Twitter 🙂
