The essential vitamin, gratitude, that everyone should be taking
Being thankful and having gratitude releases positive emotions, optimism and a zest for life; it also lowers levels of depression and stress. Those with a strong disposition toward gratitude have the capacity to be empathetic and to consider others’ emotions or points of view better than most. As a result, these type of people are more generous and helpful.
Also, grateful people place less importance on material goods; they are less likely to judge their own and others success in terms of accumulated possessions, therefore they are less envious or jealous towards others.
An attitude of gratitude not only improves and uplifts our mood, but it’s essential if we want to have a healthy body, mind and spirit. And in a world that tells us more is better, we are vulnerable to a thought pattern that focuses on what we don’t have instead of what we do have. Some of us are born with an attitude of gratitude, but for the rest of us this takes practice – daily practice.
