Did you know that gratitude is strongly associated with happiness?
And the best part is: It’s easily accessible and in your hands!
Numerous studies state that the act of gratitude leads to joy, satisfaction, well being and ultimately also a better health.
By practicing gratitude, and consciously becoming aware and shifting your focus on all the positive things you have or have achieved allows you to be appreciative and not take these things for granted. Wether it´s your bed in the morning, the roof over your head, your job, or your partner- take a moment and cultivate gratitude!
By cultivating gratitude, you are also activating positive neuronal pathways in your brain. By activating these and feeling gratitude and joy, you are actually also training your mind and brain to express gratitude more often and therefore also experience this associated happiness more often.
“ I always do this first thing in the morning right when my alarm goes off. 99.9% of the time, I’m thankful for the same things! And that’s OK! Just the act of being thankful and feeling joy first thing in the morning is what puts a positive lens for my day. “ - Anna Tarragó founder of Alfena.
