What is Gratitude?
Gratitude is the expression of appreciation for what one has

Why Gratitude Matters

  • Feeling grateful boosts happiness and fosters both physical and psychological health, even among those already struggling with mental health problems.
  • Practicing gratitude curbs the use of words expressing negative emotions and shifts inner attention away from resentment and envy. This minimizes the possibility of ruminating, which is a hallmark of depression.

Tips to Practice Gratitude:

  • Keep a journal of or in some way note big and little joys of daily life.
  • Write down "three good things"—identify three things that have gone well for you and identify the cause.
  • Write thank-you notes to others.
  • Think about people who have inspired you and what about them was most significant.
  • Engage in "mental subtraction." Imagine what your life would be like if some positive event had not occurred.
