Gratitude is defined as (yes, there is a clinical definition!): The appreciation of what is valuable and meaningful to oneself; a general state of thankfulness and/or appreciation. The definition is beautiful, isn’t it?🦋
The majority of available research indicates that gratitude is associated with an enhanced sense of personal well-being. This well-being translates to both physical and psychological health.🦋
A daily practice of gratitude can also help in lowering our stress levels. Studies have shown that grateful individuals experience fewer negative emotions including depression, anxiety, and envy.🦋
Now this doesn’t mean that we dissociate ourselves from our real-world problems, it means that we maintain awareness and appreciation of all the good that we have in our life, even during a problem/crisis.🦋
Do you practice gratitude? Did it help in any way?
