This implies that something that lasts long is something useful and functional. In this post, I want to emphasize the importance of gratitude and share why it is so important and in your life.

What is gratitude?

Gratitude is the quality of being thankful and readiness to show appreciation.

I believe there are many ways to explain gratitude, but this one is sufficient. What is important is to remember that gratitude can become our habit and part of our everyday routine.

It’s challenging to remain grateful nowadays. The first reason is that the choice is enormous. There was not much choice in the past, but these days it is harder to make a choice.

The grass of the neighbor is greener than yours. Does this sound familiar? We always tend to compare ourselves with others and being grateful is a way to overcome over comparing.

How To Find Your Passion And Purpose If You Have No Idea What You Want

Celebrate the present moment

Gratitude is something that makes us celebrate the present moment. In a way, it reminds us of what we own and about the things we are proud of.

What do I have at this moment? Who are the people around me? How is my health? What is my financial situation? Can I afford to eat daily? What is the weather today? Do I have clothes? Have I woken up alive and well today? Can I see?

I’m sure that at this moment there are at least ten things for you can be happy and grateful. It’s the fortune of gratitude.

Every day, every moment, you can find at least one thing to which you can be thankful. And this leads us to the next thing – being grateful makes you shift your focus and block negativity.

Improve your mental well-being and feel better every day. 

Block negativity

If you are tempted to change your mindset and live a positive life, definitely one of the best ways to achieve that is through practicing gratitude.

I think that now it’s much clearer why gratitude is so trendy. In fact, positive psychology and positive mindset are trending, but to achieve this, you must first master the art of gratitude.

Тhere is nothing better than a positive mindset. It makes us love ourselves more, increase our self-esteem and self-worth, and develop our personality in a positive direction.

Powerful Ways To Practice Self-Love

There is one beautiful quote by Oprah Winfrey, which I often hear, and is designed precisely for this.

Be thankful for what you have; you will end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.
– Oprah Winfrey

Be thankful and shift your focus. Those who follow the law of attraction are already well acquainted with this.

Will a man be happier if he has more money than enough? Science says he will not be happier if he has more than necessary. But of course, happiness is reduced if there is less than enough.

If the focus remains on the problem, how will we find the solution? We often waste our energy on thinking about the problem and worrying for hours, instead of taking action to overcome it. A person feels fulfilled and happy only if he is productive and he works on his own happiness.

Increase productivity and happiness

Yes, that’s right. People are created to create. Gratitude brings faith in ourselves, in other people, but also hope that everything will be well and resolved.

Practicing gratitude makes us happier because we keep thinking about the good things in life, and in that way, we become more productive. It’s a motivation for advancement and improvement because there is nothing better than waking up and listing ten fantastic things you are grateful for.

  1. I believe this is SUCH an important skill but I lack the motivation of practicing this daily. When I am practicing gratitude, I admit I am in a much better mood. But some days, my ADHD frustration takes over and it is a hard battle to fight. Thank you for the great reminder in practicing this daily!

    • That is why I always recommend a good looking journal. I also lack the motivation for practicing gratitude daily, but I found out that when I use a beautiful notebook or a journal that is specifically designed for that purpose I am more consistent. XO

  2. nice! one of my friends is working on this and is attending mindfulness courses, i will sure let her know about your post!

  3. I just love this post! It can be hard not to focus on the negative things in your life but I have been working hard to work on my positivity because like attracts like and gratitude is such a big part of that. Thanks for sharing❤️

  4. Showing gratitude is an invaluable life skill. It encourages positivity. Just as we say grace before a meal, we should teach our kids to practice gratitude daily.

    • Yes, that is so true! Great idea, how to make a family habit of practicing gratitude. XO

  5. Practicing daily gratitude is something that everyone should do (because everyone can benefit from it). It brings so much positivity and happiness into our lives. This is a beautiful article. Thank you for sharing 🙂
