How to Cultivate an Attitude of Gratitude and Why It’s Important in the Fight Against Anxiety

Have you ever met someone so charismatic with a zest for life that you just wanted to get know them more? People with a positive attitude are generally more likeable and others are naturally drawn to them. They have this special charisma that invites you in. This works because they have a unique ability to take every negative experience or situation and turn it into something positive and can express gratitude for it.

Without gratitude life can be lonely, depressing or full of anger. Gratitude can enrich your life and improve your emotional and physical health. It energizes, inspires and transforms your life, relationships, health and can play important role in your success.

Gratitude is easy when life is going great. But can you give thanks when things are going awry? Being able to find the good in situations and practicing gratitude can help you develop coping skills to get you through the tough times. It’s in those moments when we should cling to gratitude and recognize the goodness in life.

Gratitude can instantly make things a little better. It’s a coping mechanism that millions use every day to deal with the challenges in this life, and it works! In order to truly cultivate an attitude of gratitude it takes active practice. Your efforts need to be deliberate and you must seek out the things around you that are good and working well.

Start with recognizing the things in life that are good; a roof over your head, food to eat, having friends to call, your children or your spouse. When life throws something your way, force yourself to pause and notice the good around you. Give thanks for that. It only takes a minute to shift your mind to a calmer and better place. At that moment you will be more equipped to deal with the challenge ahead.

Cultivate an attitude of gratitude with generosity and helping others. Chances are someone else is dealing with some stress or troubles and could use support. Acts of giving are great for boosting mood and putting our own lives into perspective. It can help us appreciate our own surroundings better.

Do something every day that you are good at. Self-confidence has a positive effect on the brain and your emotional well-being. There are times when it seems nothing is going right but if you take the time to accomplish something that you do well, you’ll have a renewed spirit. Remind yourself often of what you are good at and practice self-love daily.

Gratitude improves our overall health, helps up to develop meaningful relationships, complements our personality and contributes to successful careers. Whether you choose to write it down or shout it to the rooftops, purposely cultivate this attitude of gratitude and let it transform your heart, mind and life.
