Mahalo (mah-hah-low) is said to be one of the most sacred words in the Hawaiian language. The English translation is thank you, but it goes much deeper than that. According to Managing with Aloha, "It's a value that includes thankfulness, appreciation, and gratitude as a way of living." With Mahalo, we live in thankfulness for every element that enriches our lives. So, with that spirit in mind, here is another way to add gratefulness to your days.
ACTION: Create a Mahalo Moment!
Every day, at the same time(s), stop and reflect on something that you are thankful for. Get into the good feelings of it! Spend a full minute or more on this. It could be a person, a kind act, the fact that your car started this morning, the class you're taking, wonderful friends, your patience, perseverance, and creativity, your pet, someone else's pet, your boss, a coworker, the trees outside your window... It can be anything at all! Set an alarm/reminder on your phone.
Bonus: It truly is good for you, all of you—mind, body, and spirit.
