Gratitude is one of the underpinnings of optimism. While striving to reach our goals, it’s important to feel grateful for what we have today.
The science on this is clear. Respected university studies show that habits of being consciously thankful make people more optimistic for an extended time and more optimistic about their lives in general.
There are two elements to this practice.
The first is to frequently express your gratitude to people. You know how to do that, phone, email, message your thanks.
The second is to record your gratitude on a daily basis. Best is in the evening before bed and the trick is to read it first thing in the morning before you read anything else.
For the second practice, read more on our resource Daily Gratitude Reflections.
