The benefits of practicing gratitude are nearly endless. People who regularly practice gratitude by taking time to notice and reflect upon the things they’re thankful for experience more positive emotions, feel more alive, and express more compassion and kindness than those who don’t. It also helps people awaken what’s positive in themselves. If you want to love the life you have, ask yourself daily what things you are grateful for. Remember, gratitude doesn’t have to be reserved only for momentous occasions. Yes, you might express gratitude after receiving a promotion at work, but you can also show your thankfulness for something as simple as making it to work this morning.
