Baker Pool & Spa, a new and used hot tub and portable spa dealer serving the greater O’Fallon, St. Peters and Kirkwood, MO. area publishes 3 Methods of Boosting Gratitude Daily.
“Being grateful can be called the secret of happiness. It creates a positive atmosphere and allows for an optimistic outlook,” said John McCormick of Baker Pool & Spa. November is National
Gratitude Month. It is an effort to spread the good news about the ways being grateful helps improve all areas of life.
Here are three methods of boosting gratitude daily.
Create a Positive Space – Creating an area in the home where everyone in the house can unwind, get rid of the stress of the day and enjoy each other’s company is a great way to encourage gratitude and an optimistic outlook.
Try adding a portable spa to the backyard for an immediate entertainment space that expands the living area of the home, brings loved ones together daily, and is a peaceful place to meditate and reflect on the good things in life. Feeling better by soaking in the hot tub’s soothing water makes it easier to meditate and focus on finding things every day to be grateful for. The powerful jet massage of a hot tub works out tension from muscles and the buoyancy of the water takes the weight off of sore joints, so the mind is free to look at the day in a positive light.
Be Forgiving – Forgiving doesn’t seem like a part of gratitude at first glance but having the ability to forgive allows people to see a problem without the frustration or anger of an incident. In reality, forgiveness and gratitude are opposite sides of the optimistic coin. However, like any coin, there must be two sides, and one is as important as the other.
Forgiveness allows people to look on situations with mercy instead of anger. Accepting that others are just human, and mistakes happen, and not assuming intention behind acts, automatically takes a lot of the pressure out of dealing with issues or problems.
Avoid Being the Problem – Don’t overpromise, or make it hard to live life, by being too rushed to recognize how good it is. This is a difficult problem for many people. Life itself can be rushed and harried. Learning how to weed out the important things in life and saying no to the things that are less important frees up schedules, but more importantly, it frees up the mind to relax and enjoy completing tasks and jobs that really make a difference. When people can focus on the important things in life in a relaxed and happy manner, everything is more fruitful and it’s easier to see the good things in what is going on, and in others around you.
To encourage people to check out the benefits of owning their own hot tub, Baker Pool & Spa will be providing free test soaks for local residents all month long. They do recommend, however, that people wanting to schedule their free 30-minute soak call the company ahead of time to reserve their spot.
