Do you have gratitude fatigue?
The benefits of practicing gratitude has been well-documented to have major health benefits. It can improve your physical health! People who exhibit gratitude report fewer aches and pains and a general feeling of health. Practicing gratitude regularly improves sleep and enhances self-esteem. Grateful people also have enhanced resilience and bounce back better from highly stressful situations.
But if simply naming ten things you’re grateful for has lost its impact try this. Identify one thing or person you are grateful for and write down five reasons you are specifically grateful for that one thing. Research show that if we want the most bang for our gratitude buck, we have to be more specific! A study at USC shows that people who wrote down five in depth features about one thing were more excited, alert, and elated! Details equal dividends!
Give it a try!
