Being Grateful Can Improve Your Health

How Does Gratitude Boost Happiness?

According to Dr. Lyubomirsky, gratitude:

  • Promotes savoring of positive life experiences
  • Bolsters self-worth and self-esteem
  • Helps people cope with stress and trauma
  • Encourages caring acts and moral behavior
  • Helps build social bonds, strengthen existing relationships, and nurture new relationships (and we know lonely people have twice the rate of heart disease as those with strong social connections)
  • Inhibits harmful comparisons
  • Diminishes or deters negative feelings such as anger, bitterness, and greed
  • Thwarts hedonistic adaptation (the ability to adjust your set point to positive new circumstances so that we don’t appreciate the new circumstance and it has little affect on our overall health or happiness)
  • Our mind has a tendency toward the negative and practicing being grateful can help us shift that mental habit. I practice gratitude everyday in my daily journaling and have found it hugely beneficial to my overall mindset.

                Joseph Campbell is one of my heroes. His writing is vast and covers a wide range of human experiences. If you get a chance, I highly recommend taking the time to read one of his many books. He is the creator of the term ‘finding your bliss’, and he established the famous ‘hero’s journey’.
