Top 7 Intriguing Benefits of Gratitude You Didn’t Know About

Many great folks lay emphasis on gratitude. For example, Oprah Winfrey advises us to always write down five things we are thankful for before we sleep.  According to her, thankfulness creates more goodness in one’s life. For as she said, ‘The more thankful I became, the more my bounty increased. That’s because – for sure – what you focus on expands. When you focus on the goodness in life, you create more of it.’

I thus had to practice gratitude and research about it because many great folks, especially Oprah Winfrey, encourage it. It then dawned on me that gratitude is important because of the following reasons.

Gratitude:

1.Increases Hope

Since gratitude makes you focus on the wonderful things life has given you, it gives you hope as it shows you how life always ensures that you have amazing things to be thankful for. In other words, it gives you hope by showing you the many ways in which the universe/life/God provides and cares for you.

2.Improves Your Health

Gratitude is good for your health since it boosts heart health and makes you sleep better. Moreover, gratitude, like most positive emotions, improves your health because it boosts your immune system and lowers blood pressure.

3.Fosters Empathy and Compassion

Thankfulness reminds you that you are more blessed than billions of people across the world. It reminds you that you have more to be thankful for than orphans, beggars, the ill, the deceased, and so on. For this reason, it makes you aware of other people’s suffering and forces you to help them.

4.Gratitude Raises Your Vibrational Frequency

You are a vibrational being, emitting a particular frequency. This frequency determines what you’ll attract in your life. Gratitude raises this frequency hence enabling you to attract good things in your life easily. For as for Rhonda Byrne, the television writer and producer, pointed it out, ‘Gratitude will shift you to a higher frequency, and you’ll attract much better things.’ 

Besides Rhonda, Joe Vitale, a renown author, also noticed that ‘when you move into an active state of sincere gratitude, your whole being lights up and your energy quickens, and this high vibration acts like a magnet to bring your good to you.’

5.Makes You Focus on the Present Moment

Since gratitude makes you focus on what you have right now, it makes you more present.

6.Shifts Your Focus from Your Problems

When facing difficulties, gratitude shifts your focus from your problems to your blessings. For this reason, it prevents you from contracting mental conditions – such as depression and chronic anxiety– which arise when you focus on your problems.

7.Eliminates Envy

You become envious towards people when you focus on the negative side of your life. For this reason, gratitude eliminates envy because it shows you that, just like the people you are envious towards, you are also blessed with wonderful things.

Conclusion

You must make thankfulness a year-round habit if you want to experience the above, and many more benefits of gratitude. Remember to point out three to ten things you are grateful for every day, and reflect on how millions of people across the world don’t have them even though they want them.
