Three Things: A Daily Practice for Mindfulness and Gratitude in the New Year

Starting the new year off right is a great opportunity to set intentions, make resolutions, and take steps towards personal growth. One way to do this is by focusing on the concept of time and being mindful of the present moment.

Time is a precious resource that we often take for granted. It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life and lose sight of the present moment. But by practicing mindfulness and being present, we can learn to make the most of our time and use it to our advantage.

One way to practice mindfulness is through meditation. This can be as simple as setting aside a few minutes each day to sit in a quiet space, close your eyes, and focus on your breath. By bringing your attention to the present moment, you can cultivate a sense of inner peace and clarity.

Another way to be mindful of the present moment is through gratitude. Take a few moments each day to reflect on the things you are grateful for. This can be anything from the small pleasures of daily life, like a warm cup of coffee or a beautiful sunset, to the people in your life who bring joy and meaning to your world. Sebastian and I have a daily ritual that helps us stay present, grateful, and grounded, no matter how hectic life gets. We take a few moments each day to reflect on three things we're grateful for, no matter how small they may seem. This simple practice has helped us cultivate a sense of inner peace and joy, and we invite you to give it a try!

In addition to practicing mindfulness, setting intentions and making resolutions can also help you start the new year off right. Think about what you want to achieve in the coming year, and make a plan to work towards those goals. Whether you want to improve your health, build stronger relationships, or advance your career, setting clear intentions can help you stay focused and motivated.

Finally, it's important to be kind to yourself as you embark on your journey towards personal growth. Remember that it's okay to make mistakes and that progress is often made in small steps. By staying present and mindful, you can learn from your experiences and make the most of every moment.


In conclusion, starting the new year off right is all about being mindful of the present moment, setting intentions, and being kind to yourself. By focusing on these things, you can make the most of your time and set yourself up for success in the coming year.
