30 Days To Gratitude

UPDATE: I want to say thank you so much for comments, reviews and feedbacks. It’s very kind of you to take the time to post it.

I spend a year living gratefully and transforms my marriage, family life, work, and health.

Gratitude is a choice. On New Year’s Eve, I make a promise to be grateful and look on the bright side of whatever happens.

Getting advice at every turn from psychologists, academics, doctors, and philosophers, I bring myself on a smart and witty journey to discover the value of appreciating what I have.

Relying on both amusing personal experiences and extensive research, I explore how gratitude can transform every aspect of life including marriage and friendship, money and ambition, and health and fitness. I learn how appreciating my spouse changes the neurons of my brain and why saying thanks helps CEOs succeed.

With warmth, humor, and appealing insight, I hope my journey will empower you to think positively and start living their own best year ever.

❍ Gratitude opens the door to more relationships. Not only does saying “thank you” constitute good manners, but showing appreciation can help you win new friends, according to a 2014 study published in Emotion.

❍ Gratitude improves physical health. Grateful people experience fewer aches and pains and report feeling healthier than other people, according to a 2012 study published in Personality and Individual Differences.

❍ Gratitude improves psychological health. Gratitude reduces a multitude of toxic emotions, from envy and resentment to frustration and regret. Robert Emmons, a leading gratitude researcher, has conducted multiple studies on the link between gratitude and well-being. His research confirms that gratitude effectively increases happiness and reduces depression.

❍ Gratitude enhances empathy and reduces aggression. Grateful people are more likely to behave in a prosocial manner, even when others behave less kindly, according to a 2012 study by the University of Kentucky.

❍ Grateful people sleep better. Writing in a gratitude journal improves sleep, according to a 2011 study published in Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being.

❍ Gratitude improves self-esteem. A 2014 study published in the Journal of Applied Sports Psychology found that gratitude increased athletes’ self-esteem, an essential component of optimal performance. Other studies have shown that gratitude reduces social comparisons. Rather than becoming resentful toward people who have more money or better jobs—a major factor in reduced self-esteem—grateful people are able to appreciate other people’s accomplishments.

❍ Gratitude increases mental strength. For years, research has shown gratitude not only reduces stress, but it may also play a major role in overcoming trauma. A 2006 study published in Behavior Research and Therapy found that Vietnam War veterans with higher levels of gratitude experienced lower rates of post-traumatic stress disorder. A 2003 study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that gratitude was a major contributor to resilience following the terrorist attacks on September 11. Recognizing all that you have to be thankful for —even during the worst times—fosters resilience.

We all have the ability and opportunity to cultivate gratitude. Rather than cthe omplaint about the things you think you deserve, take a few moments to focus on all that you have. Developing an “attitude of gratitude” is one of the simplest ways to improve your satisfaction with life.
