The benefits of practicing gratitude
The daily practice of saying or feeling “I am thankful” can have a profound effect on your life and the way you see the world. This may sound hyperbolic, but there are scientific facts behind this statement.
Neuroscientists say that…
This means that the more a neural circuit in our brain is used, the stronger it becomes. So, if you regularly practice thankfulness, the “happy” neural circuits strengthen. With practice, gratitude becomes your default setting.
The same can be said for the reverse. If, for example, you are continuously nitpicking and looking for reasons to criticize, you will build neural circuits in your brain that cause you to look for the negative in life.
Of course, changing our thinking in this way takes time, but once those “gratitude” neural connections are established, you’ll see the world through “grateful eyes.”
Gratitude is also beneficial to our mental, emotional, and physical well-being. We are better equipped to control our thoughts and moods when we practice thankfulness every day.
