National Gratitude Month is an annual designation observed in November .
Gratitude is more than simply saying “thank you.” Gratitude’s amazing powers have the ability to shift us from focusing on the negative to appreciating what is positive in our lives. Practicing daily gratitude gives us a deeper connection to ourselves and the world around us.
Everything in our lives has the ability to improve when we are grateful. Research has shown that gratitude can enhance our moods, decrease stress and drastically improve our overall level of health and well-being. On average, grateful people tend to have fewer stress-related illnesses and experience less depression and lowered blood pressure; they are more physically fit, they are happier, have a higher income, and have more satisfying personal and professional relationships.
If everyone practiced daily gratitude, we could change ourselves and the planet for the better.
What are you waiting for? Give gratitude a try!
