What is Gratitude

?

Gratitude is showing or expressing thanks.  It is an appreciation for the
good or positive events in your life.
 
Robert Emmons is considered to be the world’s leading scientific
expert on gratitude.  He claims that there are two key reasons for
why gratitude is ethical:  

First, it confirms goodness; because people affirm that there are good
things in the world, gifts, and benefits they have received.

Secondly, people recognize that the sources of this goodness
are outside of themselves.  People recognize that other people or superior
powers (i.e. if you are a spiritual person) gave them many large and small
gifts to help them achieve the goodness in their lives.

He describes these two concepts in more detail in his Greater
Good Essay called “Why Gratitude is Good”. 

What is gratitude to you?  And how do you practice it?


Positive Mental Attitude

Towards Gratitude

How It Benefits You?

The practice of gratitude as a tool for happiness has been in the
mainstream for years.  Long-term studies support the effectiveness of
expressing gratitude with an appreciative and positive mental attitude
contributes to greater success in work, greater health, peak performance in
sports and business, a higher sense of well-being, and a faster rate of
recovery from surgery.

Although you may realize the many benefits of gratitude, it still can be
difficult to maintain.  Many of us are trained to notice what is broken,
undone, or lacking in our lives.  In order for gratitude to meet its full
healing potential in your life, it needs to become more than just a
Thanksgiving word. 

Let gratitude work for you by learning new ways of looking at things in
your life and developing new habits.  Yes, this can take some time.  But
with practice it can be accomplished.

That is why practicing gratitude makes so much sense.  When you practice
giving thanks for all you have, instead of complaining about what you lack,
you give yourself the chance to see all of life as an opportunity and a
blessing.

Remember that gratitude is not an illogically optimistic approach in which
the bad things in your life are defeated or ignored.  It is more a matter of
where you put your focus and attention.  Pain and injustice exist in this
world, but when you focus on the gifts of your life, you gain a feeling of
well-being.  Gratitude balances you and gives you hope.

There are many things to be grateful for: colorful autumn leaves;
capability to walk; friends who listen, care, and really hear; chocolate;
food on the table; warm jackets; a comfortable place to live; the ability to
read; being able to see the beauty of nature; your health; family;
butterflies.

Discover

Ways to be Happier


Boost your happiness.  Here are 7 ways to be happier and improve your
emotional wellness by practicing gratitude:

Keep a gratitude journal in which you list things for which you are
thankful. You can make daily, weekly, or monthly lists.  To establish
writing in your journal as a new habit it may be better to do it more 
frequently.  However, just keeping the journal where you can see it will
remind you to think in a grateful way.

Make a gratitude collage by drawing or pasting pictures.  Put it
somewhere so you can view it daily.

Practice gratitude around the dinner table or make it part of your
nightly routine.

Make a game of finding the hidden blessing in a challenging situation.

When you feel like complaining, make a gratitude list instead.  You
may be amazed by how much better you feel.

Notice how gratitude is impacting your life. Write about it, sing about
it, and express thanks for gratitude.

Pray to God (if you are spiritual-minded) daily expressing thanks for
another day to enjoy life and all the blessings and good he has placed
in it.


As you continuously practice, an inner shift begins to occur and you may
be delighted to discover how content and hopeful you are feeling. That
sense of fulfillment is gratitude at work.  You applying the expression of
gratitude in your daily life helps to enhance your emotional wellness and
happiness. 

It helps by equipping you to deal better with stress and to maintain
control over your feelings, behavior, and thoughts when faced with both
good and bad events in your life.
