Those who regularly practice gratitude by taking time to notice and savor upon the things they’re thankful for ,experience more positive emotions and feel alive. Gratitude improves our health, relationships, emotions, personality, and career.
Gratitude doesn’t need to be reserved only for special instance.
Each day, think of 3 things you are grateful for-Nature. People. Community. It’s amazing what you notice when you focus on feeling grateful.
Once you’re aware of the blessings of everyday life, the next step is to savor them.
Savor the Feeling of Gratitude
Notice and absorb that feeling of true, genuine gratitude. Let it sink in. Soak it up. Savor your blessings in the moment they happen.
Expressing gratitude is more than courtesy, manners, or being polite. It’s about showing your heartfelt appreciation. When you thank someone, you’re also practicing two skills: you’ve noticed something good, and you’ve genuinely appreciated it.
True gratitude doesn’t leave you feeling like you owe other people something — after all, if you’ve done someone a favor, you probably don’t want the person to feel like you expect something back in return. It’s all about feeling good and creating a cycle of good.
