Gratitude and why is it good for you?


As part of a healthy habits challenge we did in our Facebook Group, we looked at Gratitude!  But why is gratitude a good habit to have? The harvard website states… “In positive psychology research, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity and build strong relationships.”  
Now that definitely sounds like a habit that could improve my own well-being and maybe for those around me too!!
If you’re not yet convinced, here are 5 Reasons why Gratitude is good for you:
  1. It is known to promote an increase in general happiness!!
  2. It can improve your productivity, performance & happiness
  3. It can help improve your sleep!
  4. It can help you cope with stress and boost your self esteem
  5. It can help improve your relationships
If you’d like to do the same challenge as we enjoyed in our group that day; simply write down 5 things you feel grateful for! It can be your health, your family, your dog, your past experiences that made you stronger, maybe that it’s been great weather this week, that you have sight in both eyes or anything at all! I’d absolutely love it if people shared even one of the things they’re grateful for below this post to give others ideas and get them started!
