How to Appreciate Life More and Be Grateful
When you look at your life, are you enjoying the moment? Can you really appreciate life? If not, what do you need to change?
Maybe you need to change everything.
Gratitude takes a simple shift in your mindset. Notice the positive things, and you’ll feel positive. Notice the joys, and you’ll feel joyous. Notice goodness of the life you have, and you have more things to look forward to.
Gratitude rewires the brain. The ventral and dorsal medial prefrontal cortex are activated and “involved in feelings of reward (the reward when stress is removed), morality, interpersonal bonding, and positive social interactions, and the ability to understand what other people are thinking or feeling.” After that, your brain releases neurochemicals like dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin, which allow you to experience happiness.
You may start a day with negative emotions and perceptions but choosing to be grateful can help you in many ways. Appreciation leads to finding determination and feeling whole, you see. It can help you love your life even at your lowest.
Appreciation is all you need to make the most of your life.
You can appreciate life more and be grateful in the following ways:
💚Hyperfocus on the Positive
💚Make a Gratitude List
💚Take a Break
💚Celebrate Your Wins
It’s not always easy to see what’s right in front of you. It’s easier to complain, close off, and be blind to the beauty that this life has to offer.
However, when you open up, you recognize that you are never alone. You have enough. You ARE enough. And that’s the power of appreciation.
