Gratitude is strongly connected to how well you rebound from setbacks. Part of resilience is getting better at being thankful for what you have. An attitude of gratitude affects your mood, outlook, and health.
Each year, during the holidays, publications appear to revisit the value of giving thanks. Research has repeatedly confirmed the link between the practice of gratitude and increased wellness. Currently, the John Templeton Foundation is supporting a multiyear project titled Expanding the Science and Practice of Gratitude.
- Giving thanks frequently can help you:
- Feel happier and healthier
- Boost your energy levels
- Be more resilient
- Improve your relationships
This Holiday Season, start building your resilience by looking for one thing each day for which you can be genuinely grateful. Write the things you’re grateful for on a piece of paper or file card and keep them in an attractive jar, basket, or box. Or you might record them in a lovely journal. The goal is, sometime this season, to share your thoughts of gratitude with someone else.
