The science of gratitude is both fascinating and uplifting, offering concrete benefits for our mental, emotional, and physical well-being:

  • Psychological Well-being: A study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology showed that maintaining a gratitude journal significantly enhances well-being and pro-social behavior.
  • Relationships: Research in the Journal of Theoretical Social Psychology found that expressing gratitude boosts relational closeness and connection.
  • Stress Reduction: The Journal of Happiness Studies highlighted that gratitude practices can reduce stress hormone levels, especially in pessimistic individuals or those under high stress.
  • Physical Health: Studies have linked gratitude practices with better sleep, fewer illness symptoms, and reduced inflammation, which is associated with various health issues.

In light of these findings, try starting each day by noting three things you're grateful for. This simple action can rewire your brain to focus more on positivity, leading to profound changes in your outlook and interactions.

  1. Right now I’m grateful to have a job. I’m at a commercial shoot with co workers and clients, and grateful that I have this opportunity. Every day I get nervous that this will go away. So right now, this brings me joy.
    I also get joy thinking about our softball board meeting last night with coaches. So grateful for the input and the camaraderie of these teams!

  2. The beautiful green views i see outside my window, a very comfortable bedroom with my cat on it, models of my previous projects that i still keep, reminds me of all the hard work i put into it. My life is fine, i have amazing parents, siblings, extended families that care about each other. my only enemy are the voices in my head.
