Gratitude

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?

  1. This was a great post. I have a habit of saying “thank you” even where there are mild inconveniences. At times, it is necessary to pause and think about a course of action, and a stumbling block might be helpful to prevent catastrophe in future. I hope you are well. Have a grateful day.

    1. I say thank you for te smallest things, though it took me some time back in the day to not feel miffed when the (basic?) courtesy wasn’t returned. I think it’s one of the easiest of the nice things to do. Hope your day went great?
