Gratitude

Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity:
It must be produced and discharged and used up in order to exist at all.

William Faulkner

569Gratitude (also known as thankfulness, gratefulness, or appreciation). It’s a positive emotion or attitude in acknowledgement of a benefit that one has received or will receive. Wikipedia.com

Do you show gratitude? Do you show enough gratitude? Studies show that people who are more grateful are happier, less depressed and enjoy life more. They’re more adapt at dealing with difficulties that we all experience in life and they are more likely to seek support from others.  Grateful people also sleep better because they think more positive thoughts before they go to sleep.

From now on, catch yourself throughout the day and take a moment to just be grateful. Grateful for the air-conditioned car, grateful that you have a car, grateful for your job, grateful for your colleagues, grateful for your family.

Every time you think thoughts of gratitude, you are releasing positive energy. This is good for your body and soul.
