How Gratitude Improves Your Life

Well, the ways are many. To name only but a few:
  1. It makes you happier and healthier. By embracing positive feelings and motivating the production of the happy hormones in your body.
  2. It enhances your self-confidence. By turning the focus back to you (and away from others) it reminds you of the good things in your life, your achievements, and your strengths thus boosting your self-worth.
  3. • It decreases feelings of jealousy, insecurity, and futile competitiveness in you and makes you less materialistic. Refocusing on what is of value to you reduces your fixation on superficiality.
  4. • It energizes you. Thinking negatively is energy-consuming and depleting.
  5. • It promotes healthier and stronger relationships. Acknowledging the role everyone plays in your life changes your attitude towards them and improves the relationship overall.
  6. • If you believe in the law of attraction, keep in mind that being grateful for what you have will attract more things to be grateful for. That’s how it goes. (The same counts if you focus on the things you lack and you worry about…guess what…you’ll attract more of them!)
So, if you want to experience all the above, you better start including gratitude in your life.
