An Attitude of Gratitude

It has been said that the best attitude to have is one of Gratitude. Being grateful for things we have helps to develop a brighter outlook on life, a better attitude. This attitude carries through not only in our homes, but how we interact with others. When we are grateful for someone we have a tendency to treat them differently. If we are thankful someone is in our lives, we will be happy to help them when needed, put their needs ahead of our own, and keep their feelings in mind when we speak. on the contrary, if we feel someone is a bother to us, we treat them in that manner, and often become resentful when they ask for help, think of ourselves first, and have little to no concern for what we do that might hurt their feelings.

But, the problem is how can we develop a sense of gratitude. I have found that if I unselfishly take care of myself everyday, I am in a better mind set of gratitude of those around me. If I simply do a little self care, I am able to care for others much easier, and even feel grateful that I am able to help them.

In our busy lives, it is sometimes impossible to take care of ourselves. That’s why the NEW Avon Senses Gratitude Lavender & Cedarwood Collection was a great addition to the senses line. And just in time for a healthy New Year. With a Lavender and Cedarwood Scent the collection creates a relaxing and calming scent experience creating a self care moment during normal daily activities. Once we care for ourselves, it becomes much easier to adopt an attitude of Gratitude.

When faced with a limited amount of time, try 7 oz., single wick soy Candle. Just light and create a private sanctuary with this luxurious scented candle that blends notes of soothing lavender and aromatic cedarwood to help you achieve a sense of inner peace.  Or, if you prefer an Air Diffuser to Scent your space a beautifully fragranced air diffuser that disperses the soothing scent of lavender and aromatic cedarwood, If your want results quickly try the Room Spray. With a few spritzes of Lavender and Cedarwood Spray, you can breathe easy and freshen up your space, and instantly refresh your home and create a relaxing atmosphere. I find It’s easier to have a sense of gratitude when I am more relaxed, and not stressed out by all the things I need to get done. In fact I am often more productive the more relaxed I am. Thus I can create a sense of gratitude, just by finishing tasks in a more relaxed manner.

If you have a ten to fifteen minutes to spare, treat yourself to a long shower with Shower Steamer. Simply place one on a shelf in your shower, someplace the water will not hit directly, and de-stress! Take a deep breath during your normal shower and feel the worries melt away. The beautiful scent of the shower steamers release notes of soothing lavender and aromatic cedarwood. Infused with lavender flower, these bath time essentials help you create a spa experience and achieve a sense of inner peace.

If you have a half an hour, why not take q nice relaxing soak in the tub with Bath Salts, and feel the stress melt away. These luxurious bath salts are infused with sea salt, glycerin and sunflower seed oil. The formula leaves the body feeling soft and relaxed, Why Not light the candle and create an entire bathroom full of relaxing lavender and cedarwood.

Now, I know many of us dream of having the time daily to care for ourselves, but in reality, it’s not always that simple. I do encourage you to take a few moments each day to stop and smell the lavender and cedarwood, and remember to think of all you are grateful for and all those people in your life that you are grateful for. Who knows, maybe taking the time to develop an attitude of gratitude might even reduce unnecessary stress, and even increase your productivity and what you can accomplish.
