The Most Powerful Practice You need in Life – Gratitude!

Daily Gratitude Journal: One practice that will change the course of your day and in turn your life. When life turns abundant.

“Most people know it’s good to be grateful, but many don’t understand what gratitude really does for us. Every time I speak to someone about Gratitude I discover they have underestimated the power of Gratitude on their life.”

 

Expressing gratitude instantly shifts your energy. It puts you in harmony with your source of supply so that the good in everything moves toward you.

 

Wallace Wattles in his book “The Science of Getting Rich.” wrote,
 “The grateful mind is constantly fixed upon the best. Therefore, it tends to become the best; it takes the form or character of the best and will receive the best.”

 

 

If you have challenges in your life that are dominating your thinking—a shortage of money, a business problem, a relationship problem—you will have a tendency to focus on the problem. And by doing that, you add energy to the problem. And then the problem grows.

 
 
 The next time things don’t seem to be going your way, just stop what you’re doing, and think about all of the things you have to be grateful for. I know that’s a pretty tall order, but if you do it, everything will start to shift in an instant. Just like snapping your fingers. When you change the way you look at the problems, the problems will change.

In 2018, The Greater Good Science Center published a white paper called “The Science of Gratitude” that outlined the following benefits of having a gratitude practice:

  •  Increased happiness and positive mood
  •  More satisfaction with life
  •  Less likely to experience burnout
  •  Better physical health
  •  Better sleep
  •  Less fatigue
  •  Greater resiliency
  •  Development of patience, humility, and wisdom

This study also showed that groups that practice gratitude may have better social behaviors, stronger relationships, and increased job satisfaction.

How Gratitude Trains the Brain ??

Science shows that gratitude can increase important neurochemicals in the brain and body.


When thinking shifts from negative to positive, there is a surging of feel-good chemicals such as dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin. These all contribute to the feelings of closeness, connection, and happiness that come with gratitude.
Psychologist Noelle Nelson and Dr. Daniel Amen conducted a study on appreciation and gratitude. Out of the two brain scans that was done, one was after thinking thoughts about Gratitude and Appreciate for 30 minutes before the scan, and the other after thinking fearful thoughts before the scan.


Psychologist Noelle Nelson and Dr. Daniel Amen conducted a study on appreciation and gratitude. Out of the two brain scans that was done, one was after thinking thoughts about Gratitude and Appreciate for 30 minutes before the scan, and the other after thinking fearful thoughts before the scan.
Both the scans radically looked different. Noelle had significantly decreased activity in her cerebellum and temporal lobes. Thankful thoughts had a positive effect, while fearful thoughts had a negative effect on her brain.


A regular practice helps you reap the benefits.


We know the brain changes with experience, so the more one practices gratitude, the more the brain learns to tune in to the positive things in the world.
