The benefits of gratitude

thank you

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:

  1. Gratitude makes us happier.
  2. Gratitude makes people like us.
  3. Gratitude makes us healthier.
  4. Gratitude boosts our career.
  5. 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.
