Here is a snippet I wrote for my article in Media class about Gratitude. I didn’t want to share my whole post for the purpose of it so here it is…
Gratitude can actually change your life. I’m not kidding!
Being grateful for the things we currently have is one of the best things to improve how we see ourselves and the world.
It helps improve your self-esteem by appreciating other people’s accomplishments instead of becoming resentful toward people who have greater things like money or a better job. Improves sleep longer and better by just jotting down things you’re grateful for.
It enhances empathy and reduces aggression by behaving in a positive manner even when others are being negative or rude. It reduces toxic emotions like envy, resentment, frustration or regret.
So be grateful for what you have currently.
