What Does Gratitude Do for Us . . . Literally?

The word gratitude is derived from the Latin word gratia, which means grace, graciousness, or gratefulness and, in some ways, encompasses all of these meanings. Do a little research on gratitude, and you find neuroscientific proof how this emotion benefits us. When you are sincerely grateful, and practice expressing that gratitude habitually, your life can change. Recent studies by Dr. John Gottman and others show gratitude is truly beneficial in both physical and psychosocial ways. On our relationships. On marriages. On children. On work. The truth is gratitude, mindfulness, and positivity create a lifestyle we should cultivate. For good reasons . . . literally. We shouldn’t save our gratitude for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Why not be grateful year-round? When you consider that gratitude has no associated fees, how . . . well, how grateful can we be? Let’s try it. Prompt yourself to say “thank you,” and:
  • You have shown good manners
  • Made someone smile
  • Caused joy
  • Improved a relationship
  • Created an opportunity
  • Lessened your aches and pains
  • Reduced melancholy and depression
  • Enhanced empathy and understanding
  • Added some quality sleep time
  • Lifted your, and someone else’s, self-esteem
  • Reduced stress and boosted mental health
  • Lowered blood pressure and increased energy
  • Demonstrated mindfulness
