March 7, 2021: Gratitude, which rhymes with “attitude,” comes from the Latin word gratus, which means “thankful, pleasing.” When you feel gratitude, you are thankful by what another person did for you and also pleased by the results. This attracts positive vibes and better people and situations in our lives.

Value of gratitude

Grateful people engage much more with their environment, leading to greater personal growth and self-acceptance, and stronger feelings of purpose, meaning and connectedness. Despite the great and many benefits that it confers, gratitude is hard to cultivate but once we cultivate it by daily practice it is hard to part away with.

When we express gratitude and receive the same, our brain releases dopamine and serotonin, the two crucial neurotransmitters responsible for our emotions, and they make us feel ‘good’.

They enhance our mood immediately, making us feel happy from the inside.

One way by which we can keep a track of gratitude practice is by writing a journal about all the things we are grateful for. It is a written proof of what we have instead of complaining what we don’t and whenever we feel low in life going through the journal will provide us evidence of how much grateful we are for this beautiful life boost us with positivity.

So we should practice gratitude more and more and imbibe it in ourselves for a happier and satisfied life .
