The practice of being thankful for the things you have, both big & small is an important skill to master. The more you appreciate the things you do have, the more things you will receive. This does not just mean material items.
Being grateful focuses your thought processes on what you have, not what you think is missing in your life. The more you focus on that, the happier you will be. Have you ever noticed people who are truly happy are also thankful for what they have? Gratefulness strengthens relationships, reduces stress & improves our overall health.
Psychological and behavioral research has shown the most amazing improvements in life brought by the practice of gratitude. Being thankful and appreciating life and the
things life offers makes us more resilient and even happier.
Being resilient means that no matter what challenges we face in our lives, we will handle them. Our attitude towards challenges can determine how well we deal with the occasional “bump in the road.” No one’s life is always smooth but focusing on the good things will help the bumps smooth out. These are temporary, that is why they are called bumps.
By looking at the good things we have in our lives & feeling thankful & grateful for those things can improve you health, relationships & bring more of those things into your life!
