Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for.

~ Zig Ziglar

The power of gratitude is incredible and the benefits of living life with an attitude of gratitude are measurable. Every aspect of our life can be improved if we are grateful. We become more relaxed and more resilient; less envious and more social. Our marriages are better, and our relationships are deeper. Our careers get a boost because our decision making is improved, our productivity increases, and our goals are more easily achieved. We are less materialistic, less self-centered, more optimistic and our self-esteem increases. Most of us sleep better, we dont get sick as often, we have increased energy and get more exercise.

As noted above, gratitude is strongly tied to optimism. Optimism makes up happier and improves our health. When we have an optimistic outlook on our current circumstances, we also have a more optimistic outlook on our future. Be grateful and cheer up!

I would venture to say that just about everyone who is happy is full of gratitude. What separates the women from the girls, and the men from the boys, is the daily practice of writing down what youre grateful for. This doesnt have to be a long, drawn out ordeal. Just five minutes a day, write down at least three things that make you thankful. Keeping a gratitude journal is an even better idea. In as little as six months, your happiness can increase significantly. Try it, youll see.

When we experience gratitude, we feel grateful more often. Our gratitude increases in intensity and for longer periods of time, and we are grateful for more things in our lives.

My daily list always starts with the same items:

Im Grateful For

And then I add on the things that Im grateful for on that day.

Take a moment and write down a few of the things youre grateful for. This is truly one of the best things you can do for yourself. Even if you dont feel like it especiallyif you dont feel like it. Nothing beats the blues back like a gratitude list.

The rest is here:
