Gratitude helps us get unstuck. It is a simple, yet effective tool to help us feel more happiness.
In shifting our focus, we retrain our brain. Rather than focus on what is bogging us down, we can choose to see what we are grateful for.
Since gratitude is correlated with optimism, the more we practice, the more favorable our outlook.
The better we feel about our lives and any given situation, the better we react. This in turn creates more positive results and starts a chain reaction. The more we express gratitude, the more we notice what we are grateful for, the more grateful we feel and the more we are able to continue noticing.
By simple choosing to notice and redirect your attention in areas and situations where you feel stuck you begin a new cycle of contentment.
