Gratitude is the quality of being thankful, showing appreciation, and acknowledging goodness in our lives. It can help shift our perspective towards positivity and enhance overall well-being.
Gratitude is an important value that can help us lead happier, healthier, and more fulfilling lives, while also strengthening our relationships and sense of well-being. Gratitude is an important value for several reasons:
1. It promotes positive emotions
2. It strengthens relationships
3. It fosters empathy
4. It promotes a positive-growth mindset
5. It encourages generosity
6. It strengthens resilience
Practicing gratitude involves actively seeking out things to be thankful for and expressing appreciation for them.
Here are ways we can practice/promote gratitude:
Volunteer or give back: find ways to help others in your community or donate to a charity you support and reflect on the impact you’re making. Choose one cause that works for you. That’s all you need to do!
Express gratitude to others: Say thank you and show gratitude to loved ones, friends, family, team members, and even strangers or those you find less ‘valuable’ or ‘friendly’ – everyone loves to be seen and thanked when they are helpful (even if it’s something small).
