Let's be honest. When you're thinking about what you're grateful for, items like toilet paper probably don't make the list. But maybe it's time to change that.
The anonymous creator of the Tumblr "Be Grateful For Toilet Paper" is on a mission to bring more awareness to the little things in life that few people ever feel thankful for, from morning cups of joe to sanitation workers to our very own senses of smell. It's not a bad idea, considering people who express gratitude (for anything!) on a consistent basis may have a stronger immune system, higher levels of positive emotions and lower blood pressure.
Check out some of the artist's gratitude illustrations below and take a little time to conjure up a little thankfulness. Here's to the little, uncommon treasures in our lives we forget to acknowledge on a daily basis.
This GPS Guide is part of a series of posts designed to bring you back to balance when you're feeling off course.
GPS Guides are our way of showing you what has relieved others' stress in the hopes that you will be able to identify solutions that work for you. We all have de-stressing "secret weapons" that we pull out in times of tension or anxiety, whether they be photos that relax us or make us smile, songs that bring us back to our heart, quotes or poems that create a feeling of harmony or meditative exercises that help us find a sense of silence and calm. We encourage you to visit our other GPS Guides here, and share with us your own personal tips for finding peace, balance and tranquility.
