The benefits of gratitude
In a recent post on Gratitude Breathing, I mentioned the wide-ranging benefits of gratitude. This post, The 31 benefits of gratitude you didn’t know about, is the best examination of “what’s in it for you” that I have come across.
If you only do a deep dive into one post this week make it this one. You’ll be amazed at gratitude’s research-backed superpowers.
Here are the top five benefits:
- Gratitude makes us happier.
- Gratitude makes people like us.
- Gratitude makes us healthier.
- Gratitude boosts our career.
- Gratitude strengthens our (positive) emotions.
Gratitude can literally change your life – without a thing changing externally. It touches all aspects of your life – mental, physical, even spiritual. It creates a positive lens through which to see the world, and shifts your focus to what’s good.
I won’t waste too many words talking about it here (a first!) because the post in the above link does such a fantastic job.
