Practising gratitude is spiritually fulfilling and can change your life for ever. Personally I've always been quick to say thank you but it took me a long time to fully grasp the spiritual significance of true gratitude. Spending some time alone every day to be thankful can change your life.

If you use a journal already, make a daily point of writing 5 things down you are grateful for every day, you'll be amazed the difference it can make to your day, or if you're like me and love your iphone, there's plenty of great gratitude apps out there.
