Gratitude is defined as the
quality of being thankful.
Recent studies show that being
grateful may have a profound
effect on our lives. A study by
Greater Good Science Center at
UC Berkeley suggests that people
who actively reflect on what
they are grateful for experience
better mental health. These
results continued weeks after
the study. The simple act of
writing one letter of gratitude
to another person each week for
three weeks improved their
write daily about the things
they are grateful for. Oprah
Winfrey kept a gratitude journal
for over a decade. She would
write down 5 things that she was
grateful for each day. Gratitude
does not have to be associated
with large events or activities.
We can be grateful for a sunny
day, a tasty meal, or anything
that we enjoy. Oprah Winfrey
related to the graduating class
of 2017 at Skidmore College,
that knowing what you’re
grateful for can help you make
the right decisions and find
success in work and life.
Self-help Guru Tony Robbins
spends three minutes each day
focusing on something simple
that he is grateful for. After
this, he devotes three minutes
to prayer, then completes his
“three to thrive,” by spending
three minutes concentrating on
three goals he is committed to
Good study revealed that
gratitude letter writing helped
people avoid focusing on the
negative in their life. The
letter writers were not required
to send the letters of gratitude
they wrote to others. Those that
did not send the letters
experienced the benefits of
gratitude as well. The act of
focusing on what you are
grateful for may change your
mindset and help you avoid
negative thoughts and feelings.
The study showed that
gratitude may have lasting
effects on the brain.
Researchers measured brain
activity with an fMRI scanner
after establishing an
experiment. A benefactor gave
participants money and asked
them to pass it on to someone
else if they felt grateful.
Participants who felt grateful
gave more of the money to
charity and showed distinct
suggest the benefits of
gratitude can be enormous.
Happiness, more friends, career
success, and better health are
just a few of the benefits
believed to be associated with
gratitude. It takes time for
these benefits to manifest, but
we can learn to be more grateful
over time. It may be worth a few
moments to reflect on what we
are grateful for each day.
