Stepping back and creating a regular practice of gratitude makes us happier. It builds the muscle of seeking and recognising silver linings. It makes us more productive. More optimistic.
Practising gratitude also helps us realise how lucky we are. How frequently we prevail against the odds. Gratitude helps us appreciate the beauty of serendipity, and the scarcity of time.
Practice gratitude and you’ll learn to cherish time with loved ones, minimise regret, and capitalise on opportunities.
It doesn’t need to be a colossal effort - you don’t need to meditate like a monk. Just think of one thing you’re grateful for. Every day if you can. Write it down. And you’ll flourish!
