Share the joy : Passing on the spirit of gratefulness
Thankfulness, gratitude and gratefulness – these three small words have a deep meaning. They describe a personality trait, growing into a way of living. In fact, numerous studies have shown that people who live with an attitude of gratitude are known to live longer, sleep better, and have increased productivity and happier lives. Moreover, people who describe themselves as feeling grateful tend to suffer less stress and depression than the rest of the population.
For all its benefits, gratitude doesn’t come naturally to us. Gratitude is more of a lifestyle – an active choice made by an individual. However, it’s not the major accomplishments; it’s the smallest, almost unnoticeable daily events that one must be thankful for. Only then can we experience the spirit of positivity that surrounds us, both when the tide flows with and against us. Gratitude broadens our perception and clears our vision. It inspires humility and fosters empathy towards others. A thankful heart is the parent of all virtues.
When it comes to expressing gratitude, one mustn’t be quiet about it. Simple practices such as thanking someone or even keeping a weekly gratitude journal can increase alertness, enthusiasm, and energy. Writing a thank you note further acts as a catalyst inspiring others to be thankful in their lives as well.
So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and start creating this chain of happiness today! After all, it only starts with you.
