Keep a gratitude journal. Set aside a time each day to write down five things you are grateful for. The end of the day, right before you go to bed, is a good time to do this. Push aside the worries and details of the day and focus on your blessing instead.
Do something for others. A great way to bring gratitude into your life is to do things for others. This gets you out of your own head and allows you to focus on helping people who are less fortunate than you. Volunteer for a cause you care about, do a kind thing for someone in need, or compliment a stranger.
Practice mindfulness. One of the greatest gifts of recovery is the ability to be present in your life. Cultivate awareness and mindfulness by paying attention to what is going on inside you and around you. Notice the little things. Listen to your body. Slow down the hectic pace of life and appreciate small joys. Living in the present, instead of being preoccupied about the past or the future allows you to notice the little things you are grateful for.
