The Pockitudes™ journal fits in your pockets and purses, so you can record your gratitudes as they come to you.

WHY CATE BLANCHETT FINDS PRACTICING GRATITUDE SO IMPORTANT

Frederic Terral

Don’t think counting your blessings every day will do a lot of good? Cate Blanchett, who does it on the reg, begs to differ about the impact practicing gratitude can have on your mood and your health.

In an interview with Byrdie, the actress acknowledged how incredibly easy is to focus on the negatives in life, which may be why she makes it her mission to stay positive and continually do little things to better herself. (Even if just for a few minutes a day.)

Gratitude, what it takes.

Frederic Terral

Saying thank you always makes me happy. The driver who takes me home, the 'mama mboga' at the market, the supermarket attendant who serves me; I say thank you to them all. The one thing that gives me joy and satisfaction in this life is showing gratitude. It isn't about what I get in return, it is about what I experience as a person.

Good morning dear. Thank you for coming into my life, for being my pillar, my friend and much more. I hope you continue to stay there. I love you ~ Ed Moraa

I was left speechless after reading this, it isn't everyday someone appreciates me to this extent. I felt special, I am special. Maybe I haven't appreciated you until now, here it is, thank you for reading my posts each time I publish. Thank you for being my audience, thank you for being my invisible friend, thank you for being my family. Thank you for being in my life.

Starting a Gratitude Practice

Frederic Terral

As compared with most of the world, U.S. citizens are rich, but to what extent are we happy? We’re taught less to express gratitude, than to strive, perpetually seeking the next thing. Surely that will “make us happy”, except that then we’ll be preoccupied the next goal. Meanwhile we’re anxious that bad people will steal, ruin, or misappropriate our possessions, or that we haven’t bought the right thing.

Our founding document speaks of happiness as something to be pursued. We chase after “it.” So the idea of gratitude is an unclaimed orphan in U.S. culture. Why would be risk halting the “pursuit” in order to celebrate what we have? (If you click this link, then scroll down to “gratitude.”)

It is minority voices that suggest we should live not only in the endless future but in the present, that we notice what is good in the only time we can ever live in, the now. Without reference to striving, these voices tell us that if we neglect the present, we throw away a treasure.

I thought of this when friends told my wife and me about their daily practice of gratitude. Every evening in notebooks they describe things they are grateful for, then read each other what they’ve written. Getting ready for a possible move, they’re giving up various things, but they don’t want to discard these notebooks. Why do they read them aloud? Because being witnessed deepens their commitment.

Gratitude Is Good For The Soul And Helps The Heart, Too

Frederic Terral

As we launch into Thanksgiving week, consider this: Research shows that feeling grateful doesn't just make you feel good. It also helps — literally helps — the heart.

A positive mental attitude is good for your heart. It fends off depression, stress and anxiety, which can increase the risk of heart disease, says Paul Mills, a professor of family medicine and public health at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine. Mills specializes in disease processes and has been researching behavior and heart health for decades. He wondered if the very specific feeling of gratitude made a difference, too.

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.

So, why aren't we all doing it?

Because being grateful is not necessarily easy — and it does require practice. Plus, it can be particularly challenging to embrace gratitude when it comes to our jobs, co-workers, salary, commute or long-hours. So, how do we go about practicing gratitude it at work?

How Gratitude Changes You and Your Brain

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.

3 Ways Practicing Gratitude Builds a Successful Life

Frederic Terral

Gratitude is a popular buzzword that we often associate with the Thanks Giving Holiday – but the truth is that, the simple act of being thankful is a practice that we can implement every day of the year. Consider the idea that ordinary life is something to be grateful for. Are you alive? Do you have air to breathe, food to eat, people who care about you? Often, the things we take for granted are also those that we come to appreciate most.

4 GRATITUDE PRACTICES THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE

Frederic Terral

1. Keep a gratitude journal.  Writing frequently in a gratitude journal is a wonderful way to begin your practice. Set aside a certain number of things to write down throughout the day. Don’t worry about being regimented, but look for the goodness in every situation, savoring every moment you have to reflect.

Consider: Who or what inspired me today? What brought me joy today? What brought me comfort and deep peace today?
