Three steps to Becoming more Grateful

Expressing gratitude is much more than just a polite response to receiving something. It is a fundamental aspect of human nature that can bring numerous benefits to those who practice it genuinely.

Neuroscientists have found that gratitude can affect our brain function chemically, creating a cycle of positivity that makes us happier and healthier. This cycle helps us become more optimistic and
compassionate towards ourselves and others. It also strengthens our relationships with others, as a lack of gratitude can cause strain in relationships.

A 10-week study conducted in 2015 found that people who practiced gratitude had greater feelings of optimism and positivity, were physically more active, and reported fewer visits to the doctor than those who focused on negative experiences. Being grateful can also improve sleep quality and reduce feelings of anxiety and depression, as well as the risk of heart failure. Even during difficult times, it is important to find something to be grateful for. Here are three easy ways to practice gratitude: keep a daily journal of at least three things you are grateful for, tell people in your life what you appreciate about them daily, and take a moment to think about a quality you like about yourself or something you have achieved when you look in the mirror.
