The power of gratitude
10 benefits of practising gratitude:
Gratitude helps you to be more mindful and in your parasympathetic nervous system - your rest and digest mode. If you're feeling grateful, you're also being mindful because you can't feel gratitude without becoming aware of what you're experiencing. It's impossible to feel or experience fear or anxiety, and gratitude at the same time. There are huge health benefits when you're not in this 'fight flight' mode of stress.
Instead of worrying about what you don't have, be grateful for what you do have.
Gratitude needs to be practised consistently (not just known) - see our journal here to support you for 9 weeks to rewire your brain (LINK), create more positive thought patterns and enjoy more small moments.

“Gratitude can boost neurotransmitter serotonin and activate the brain stem to produce dopamine. Dopamine is our brain's pleasure chemical. The more we think positive, grateful thoughts, the healthier and happier we feel.” Cerebral Cortex
