Morena to you all … the intention of today’s post is to elaborate on the calming and healing effects of gratitude . In our everyday living / lives there are many a times that we are confronted with emotional and / or physical pain.
Both Evidence Based Research and the teachings of philosophers from all schools of thought recommend – embracing gratitude in our lives offers a pathway towards healing / betterment abd wellness .
Gratitude is an inherent value of mindfulness – when we feel grateful we invite calmness – calmness has a regulating effect on our mind abd body – we think better – we feel better and we do better – when we are calm
Gratitude helps us become aware of our strengths hence – it allows for empowerment despite the challenges that we face emotionally or physically
Gratitude is about feeling grateful and thankful – it replaces emotional discontent with wellness and replenishment
Gratitude is about acknowledging that there are positive aspects in our lives – the positive aspects co exist with the negatives – focusing on the positives brings us to a place of contentment and paves the way for betterment
So here are ways to practise everyday gratitude
