Gratitude is the appreciation of what is valuable and meaningful to oneself and represents a general state of thankfulness and/or appreciation. Having a grateful disposition, being the kind of person who notices and appreciates the positive in the world, is associated with greater physical and mental well being. Grateful people experience more positive emotion, feel better about themselves, are less depressed, and are more satisfied with life in general.
We can become more grateful through practice. There is a good evidence that cultivating the practice of gratitude leads to increases in physical and mental well being. Compared to keeping lists of hassles or neural events, keeping a gratitude list has been shown to :
- Increase well being, optimism, life satisfaction, and happiness.
- Decrease negative feelings, depression, worry, body dissatisfaction, and physical symptoms.
