5 Beneficial Side Effects of Kindness

Frederic Terral

“If you haven’t any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.”
— Bob Hope

When we think of side effects, the first thing that springs to mind are the side effects of drugs. But who’d have thought that kindness could have side effects, too?

Well, it does! And positive ones at that.

Of course, we should never do an act of kindness to gain from it. We should always be kind because it’s the right thing to do. But when we are kind, the following are some side effects that come with it...,

10 Surprising Benefits You’ll Get From Keeping a Journal

Frederic Terral

When it comes to keeping a journal, stereotypes of Sweet Valley High and Napoleon Dynamite quickly come to mind; “Dear diary” is reserved for the high-school sweetheart or awkward recluse. Others see writing merely as a tool, a pragmatic means to an end, certainly without value in and of itself.

But science continues to dissolve skepticism. For those sitting on the fence, these 10 benefits of journaling will convince you to start writing.

Gratitude is not "OMG I'm SO grateful for my BMW!"

Frederic Terral

Gratitude does not mean denying reality, sadness, grief, or loss. On the contrary, it's about acknowledging all those things. In fact, feelings of sadness and loss can often lead you to greater feelings of gratitude.

For example, contemplating how alone we appear to be in a vast universe devoid of any signs of other life might make you grateful for this precious life-sustaining blue planet. On the other hand, maybe it just makes you want to go shopping, which brings us to...

A Beginner’s Guide to Gratitude

Frederic Terral

Needlepoint pillows remind us to count our blessings, we gather around the table at Thanksgiving every year to give thanks for what we are grateful for, and since the late 1990s Oprah has been telling us we need to keep a gratitude journal. Gratitude is a concept we can all understand, but isn’t something that is always put into regular practice. Making the conscious effort to make gratitude a part of our daily existence will rewire the mind, to be more receptive to noticing, and savoring the moments of happiness that give us contentment in our lives.

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

How and why to practice gratitude at work

Frederic Terral

According to a wide variety of research, practicing gratitude can make us happier and healthier. It can improve our sleep, self-esteem and overall well-being. It can also result in more people liking us, better relationships and more success at work.

The Benefits of Gratitude

Frederic Terral

Gratitude is an emotion expressing appreciation for what one has—as opposed to, for example, a consumer-driven emphasis on what one wants. Gratitude is getting a great deal of attention as a facet of positive psychology: Studies show that we can deliberately cultivate gratitude, and can increase our well-being and happiness by doing so. In addition, gratefulness—and especially expression of it to others—is associated with increased energy, optimism, and empathy.

I felt several flashes of gratitude today, and it wasn’t even Thanksgiving or Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day. First my husband, Dave, got me iced coffee without my asking. Then my 8-year-old presented me with a handmade Rainbow Loom bracelet. And my new comforter felt amazingly soft and luxe when I fell into bed at night. Ahh . . .

As I grow older, I’m getting more appreciative of the people and creature comforts that make me feel loved and contented. One study estimated that for every 10 years of life, gratitude increases by 5%. And that, the research suggests, is beneficial to our bodies and minds: People who are regularly grateful—who acknowledge the goodness in life and the sources of it—are generally healthier and happier.

With the rise of managed health care, which emphasizes cost-efficiency and brevity, mental health professionals have had to confront this burning question: How can they help clients derive the greatest possible benefit from treatment in the shortest amount of time?

Recent evidence suggests that a promising approach is to complement psychological counseling with additional activities that are not too taxing for clients but yield high results. In our own research, we have zeroed in on one such activity: the practice of gratitude. Indeed, many studies over the past decade have found that people who consciously count their blessings tend to be happier and less depressed.

Journaling is Annoying. Here’s What I Do Instead

Frederic Terral

I know, I know. I’ve heard all the arguments for journaling. It’s reflective. You learn about yourself. It keeps your life in perspective. But frankly, it just wasn’t doing it for me. Whenever I write, I want it to be moving toward something. Even if I know I’ll chop a lot in the editing process, it at least feels like progress. Journaling never felt like progress. I could never do it consistently, and if I had to write one more feeling about myself, I would have thrown up. So instead, I tried something different…

The 31 Benefits of Gratitude You Didn’t Know About: How Gratitude Can Change Your Life

Gratitude makes us happier.

A five-minute a day gratitude journal can increase your long-term well-being by more than 10 percent. That’s the same impact as doubling your income! How can a free five minute activity compare? Gratitude improves our health, relationships, emotions, personality, and career. Sure, having more money can be pretty awesome, but because of hedonic adaptation we quickly get used to it and stop having as much fun and happiness as we did at first.
