Attitude of Gratitude

Instead of writing about what I am grateful for, I want to share with you some benefits of the beautiful process of expressing gratitude for the things that fill your life.

Gratitude

6 Benefits of Gratefulness:

1. A mind at ease. A grateful attitude translates to a “glass half full” attitude.  When you’re focusing on what you have instead of what you don’t have, you are sending signals to your brain that everything is alright and that allows you to relax.

2. “You’re radiating!” Happiness and Health!  Gratitude leads to a stronger feeling of joy, which improves your health!  There are many studies showing that being in a grateful state of mind naturally boosts your energy levels and vitality.

3. It opens you up to even more! Oh yes, the Law of Attraction!  The more you choose to be in the vibration of gratefulness, the more things you will attract into your life to be grateful for.

4. A boost to your relationships and love life! An attitude of gratitude is infectious.  When you’re you are improving the energy you are bringing into a relationship, it has a ripple effect.

5. Increased capacity. When you’re in groove of gratefulness, you start to see that there is so much going your way.  The little stuff that you don’t think is going your way begins to feel like it’s not that big of a deal anymore.  You can take on more.

6. Reach bigger goals and be the bigger you! Check this out:

“A daily gratitude intervention (self-guided exercises) with young adults resulted in higher reported levels of the positive states of alertness, enthusiasm, determination, attentiveness and energy compared to a focus on hassles or a downward social comparison (ways in which participants thought they were better off than others).  There was no difference in levels of unpleasant emotions reported in the three groups.

Cultivating an attitude of gratitude can be challenging.  It’s an attitude you must choose.  Once you commit to changing your attitude, everything shifts.  Keeping a gratitude journal really helped me!
