An Attitude of Gratitude

What the heck? Gratitude? 

No. I’m not even religious. When I first started looking into gratitude, I wasn’t expecting much.

I was wrong:

 Gratitude makes us happier.

A five-minute a day gratitude journal can increase your long-term well-being by more than 10 percent. That’s the same impact as doubling your income!

Gratitude improves our health, relationships, emotions, personality, and career.

Sure, having more money can be pretty awesome!

Gratitude makes people like us.

Gratitude generates social capital – in two studies, those who were 10% more grateful than average had 17.5% more social capital.

Gratitude makes us nicer, more trusting, more social, and more appreciative. As a result, it helps us make more friends, deepen our existing relationships, and improve our marriage.

Gratitude boosts our career.

Gratitude makes you a more effective manager,helps you network, increases your decision making capabilities, increases your productivity, and helps you get mentors and proteges. As a result, gratitude helps you achieve your career goals, as well as making your workplace a more friendly and enjoyable place to be.

Gratitude strengthens our emotions.

Gratitude reduces feelings of envy, makes our memories happier, lets us experience good feelings, and helps us bounce back from stress.

Gratitude makes us more optimistic.

Gratitude is strongly correlated with optimism. Optimism in turn makes us happier, improves our health, and has been shown to increase lifespan by as much as a few years.

 I’d say a 5 minute a day gratitude journal would be worth it just for this benefit.
