NURTURING GRATITUDE

"Practicing gratitude is like taking a supplement for your soul."

 

Over the past decade, hundreds of studies have documented the social, physical, and psychological benefits of gratitude...

 

Why practice gratitude?

  • Gratitude brings us happiness:

    • Practicing gratitude has proven to be one of the most reliable methods for increasing happiness and life satisfaction.

    • It also boosts feelings of optimism, joy, pleasure, enthusiasm, and other positive emotions. 

    • On the flip side, gratitude also reduces anxiety and depression.

  • Gratitude is good for our bodies:

    • Gratitude strengthens the immune system, lowers blood pressure, reduces symptoms of illness, and makes us less bothered by aches and pains. 

    • It also encourages us to exercise more and take better care of our health.

  • Grateful people sleep better:

    • They get more hours of sleep each night, spend less time awake before falling asleep, and feel more refreshed upon awakening (if you want to sleep more soundly, count blessings, not sheep!)

  • Gratitude makes us more resilient:

    • It has been found to help people recover from traumatic events, including veterans with PTSD. 

  • Gratitude strengthens relationships and promotes forgiveness:

    • It makes us feel closer and more committed to friends and romantic partners. When partners feel and express gratitude for each other, they each become more satisfied with their relationship. It may also encourage a more equitable division of labor between partners. 

  • Gratitude helps us "pay it forward":

    • Grateful people are more helpful, altruistic, and compassionate.

The good news is that feeling grateful is a skill we can develop with practice; enjoying its many benefits, and life in general, along the way.
