If you’ve heard the term gratitude thrown around, then you’ve no doubt heard that it is a fantastic practice to do on a regular basis.

But if you still need some convincing to get started, here’s how it helps – gratitude:

  • Lights up the brain’s reward pathway, flooding the brain with positive chemicals.
  • Helps you sleep better.
  • Helps regulate your metabolisms.
  • Helps regulate your mood.
  • Decreases symptoms of anxiety and depression.
  • Shifts heart rhythm (in a positive way)
  • Lowers levels of inflammatory biomarkers.
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Strengthens your immune system.
  • Increases social connection.
  • Increases energy and focus.
  • Increases productivity and
  • Increases resilience.

So, in a nutshell, it’s good for you.

Gratitude is not just something to do, it has to be cultivated, nurtured.  To grow until it becomes part of how you see the world.  That’s when the true benefits of gratitude are experienced.  And the more you strengthen your gratitude muscle, the greater defence you have against destructive thinking that robs you of seeing the love and joy that surrounds you.

And it’s not just for your benefit – gratitude is contagious.  There’s no need to fall into a pattern of toxic positivity – sometimes things are just crap.  But the more we can find joy in the simple things we have, the more others will notice it too and that, my friend, makes everyone happier, kinder and perhaps a little more compassionate. 

If you’re keen to start getting all the wonderful benefits from a daily gratitude practise, check out our gorgeous gratitude kit at littlemusings.com  The kit has been thoughtfully designed to bring a peaceful moment to your day where you can reflect on the big and small gifts in your life and will be a great addition to any home, office or classroom.
